Inspire Through Sport is an organization designed to provide programs, courses, resources, and hands-on experience, and to foster inspirational leadership development.  Tennis Alberta, along with The Tennis Professionals Association (TPA), the coaching arm of Tennis Canada, has partnered with Inspire Through Sport to deliver this amazing pilot mentorship program for girls aged 14-17.

Studies show that girls who participate in sport are more likely to be successful in academics, pursue great careers and become leaders in their community.  Inspire Through Sport is here to show that through tennis, females can gain valuable life experiences in a safe environment.  This inspirational mentorship program is a chance to acquire knowledge in goal setting, discipline, independence, time management, responsibility, and so much more. Working collaboratively with Provincial Tennis Associations, and the TPA is a top priority for Inspire to ensure high quality standards are met throughout the program’s delivery.

Founded by Tennis Canada trained coaches Nikki Carnovale and Rachel Gould, Inspire Through Sport aims to create a collaborative environment that brings young females together to learn, grow, and lead. Carnovale and Gould believe there are various pathways to success and this program will work with each individual to reach their full potential.  Participants will either receive a Community Tennis Facilitator Certificate or if eligible (from meeting all criteria) will become Certified as an Instructor.

This incredible mentorship and training program runs for 10-months, from October 2022-July 2023!  The program is broken up with 50% online sessions and 50% in person practicums with additional development opportunities available to all participants.
