Today is DAY ☝????of the @sloanestephensfoundation invitational training camp !!! I am SO excited and proud of what we’ve been working on. This was something that I was lucky enough to attend when I was growing up & I just hope that these kids have the same amazing experience I did. Will share more soon! ????
Sloane Stephens made her way down to the USTA National Campus in Lake Nona, Fla. this week, and not for offseason training. She has accepted a new role as the USTA's National Excellence Program ambassador to promote coaching education, college preparation, player grants and more.
This week in Florida, she'll speak with junior tennis players about her journey, and help players both on and off the court.
"It’s an honor to join the USTA Foundation as the National Excellence Program Ambassador" Stephens said in a press release. "Our shared missions to change lives through tennis and education are vital to making tennis accessible and fun for many children,"
The USTA Excellence Program provides underprivileged junior players who do not have access to resources, the opportunity to fulfill their equipment, coaching, and travel needs at no cost.
The 26-year-old's friend Madison Keys joined her on the courts for clinics.
Stephens' foundation aims to develop better futures for children through education, encouraging healthier lifestyles, and opening up opportunities.
