Since 1984, San Antonio Sports has put our city on the global stage. But we’re not just about big games. San Antonio Sports’ innovative afterschool program, iPlay Afterschool, ignites a love of sport in 3rd through 5th graders, while teaching them life lessons about active living, good nutrition, and strong personal character. A nonprofit organization whose mission is to transform our community through the power of sport. That transformation takes place at the intersection of three vision areas: HEALTHY KIDS, PLACES to PLAY and EVENTS that IMPACT. It’s there that you’ll see our programs transform the health and wellbeing of children and their families, the community improved by parks and enhanced recreational facilities for which we advocate, and our economy reaping the positive effects of the premier sporting events we attract.
About Bush ACE Outreach Programs
The BUSH ACE OUTREACH PROGRAM was launched in 2016, at the Bush Tennis Center in Midland, Texas to Advise, Counsel, and Encourage (ACE) area youth by connecting positive role models with elementary-aged children through the sport of tennis. Thanks to partnerships with the University of Texas Permian Basin (UTPB) and the United States Tennis Association (USTA), ACE has provided free in-school programs to over 40,000 elementary-aged children throughout the Permian Basin and free or discounted after-school and summer programs supported by the Bush Tennis Center. In addition to learning the sport of tennis, ACE promotes the core values of sportsmanship, integrity, self-confidence and hard work.
In 2023, ACE will continue to expand throughout Texas with new partnerships with the USTA Arthur Ashe National Junior Tennis & Learning program (NJTL), Baylor Tennis, Texas A&M Tennis, TCU Tennis, UTPB Tennis, UT Austin Tennis and UT San Antonio Tennis. The 2023-2024 Bush ACE Outreach Program goal is to reach over 200,000 Texas children.
