More on SCATA and Coach B

Coach B and her SCATA program complement perfectly the philosophy of the Anguilla Tennis Academy. SCATA is about community, friends, family, fairness, and fun. Our goal is to make a difference in our community and create memories for a lifetime, all through tennis!

The staff of SCATA encourages life skills like; etiquette, discipline and sportsmanship to young children as well as adults within our academy. We conclude every 10 week session with a family/community oriented round robin tournament. Each adult plays with a child as their partner. This encourages the child to learn the game of tennis and communicate in a respectful manner with adults as well as their opponents. This teaches children not to be intimidated by anyone and empowers them to be their best….on and off the court.

SCATA also has a mentoring program called KIK “Kids Instructing Kids”. These boys and girls learn to be leaders in their community by teaching younger children tennis skills and what they have learned from their elders. After volunteering for one year with Coach B, they earn a spot as Assistant Coach. One such coach is David Gerak also a family friend. Coach B encourages her junior players to help with various community tennis programs. These children earn community service hours for college as well as experience memories of a lifetime!

Testimonials

"Siobhan Belloli is without a doubt, the most reliable, likable, and productive tennis coach I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She has established the largest the most successful NJTL program in all of San Diego County. She has made the sport of tennis a reality for hundreds of children, who might not ever have had the chance to experience it. She regularly sponsored and sought out sponsors for her program, to provide open attendance at major tennis events i.e.: John McEnroe clinic at the Rancho Bernardo Senior Tour, The Acura/La Costa Women’s Championship, etc. She made sure all of her students had an opportunity to meet, face to face, some of the tennis stars they see on TV. Her motivation of all these children, as well as adults, is none other than inspirational for all of us in the tennis community. I only wish I had a dozen more like her."
