JTCC & Special Olympics Maryland
An exciting partnership between JTCC and Special Olympics Maryland started in March 2018 with weekly training sessions at JTCC. The instruction is led by JTCC’s Abby Landis, a certified Special Olympics coach. JTCC Champs have the opportunity to assist as program ambassadors and earn community service hours. The Special Olympics Maryland tennis team consists of 15 athletes. Four members of this group won multiple medals at the Special Olympics Team USA Games in Seattle, WA during July 2018.

Training sessions focus heavily on coordination, contact point, and specific drills designed to help athletes develop and continue to progress. JTCC Champs enjoy helping out and interacting with Special Olympic Maryland athletes.
