To improve the physical, emotional and social well-being of children and youth from families facing challenges due to chronic low income or due to cognitive or physical developmental disabilities (Autism, Down Syndrome, Wheelchair Disabilities).
We do so by providing, free of charge, tennis lessons including all equipment. Lessons are conducted in a manner that promotes physical activity and engages the participants in learning and connectedness with peers and mentoring adults.
In 2017 we were presented with the President’s Award from Sports BC for our dedication to our community and the children. (February 6, 2017)

The growth of KATS has been extraordinary!
From its inception in October 2013, the reception we have received from: the community at large, the organizations we work with, the funding entities we have approached and, most importantly, from the kids and parents has been enthusiastic and inspiring. To date have surpassed 16,000 participants!
