Free Adaptive Programming - GSTEF offers free tennis programs and training for SOMD athletes year round. To improve in tennis, athletes must practice and play matches to improve their skills and understanding of the game.

GSTEF uses the United States Tennis Association’s (USTA) adaptive tennis training format. All tennis instructors are certified tennis professionals. All training is currently done indoors at Green Spring Racquet Club. GSTEF offers three different types of competition: individual skills, short court match play and full court match play.

GSTEF trains SOMD athletes for competition opportunities. Divisional Qualifiers are designed to prepare athletes and partners for the state-level event. Attendance and participation is mandatory to advance to state-level competition in the fall. SOMD Fall Festival Competition will be at Mount St. Mary’s University in Emmitsburg, MD. This year the festival is scheduled for October 22, 2016. GSTEF’s goal is to also have athletes that will someday compete at Special Olympics National and International Tennis Tournaments.
