Story

In 2004 we set out to create the ultimate environment to help one child be his best . . . 

Today we help hundreds of children reach their full potential.

 

 

Our Start

Marty Hennessy, Frideric Prandecki-the first child in the Foundation, Trenton Alenik-the second child in the Foundation, and Ryan Wolfington in 2012.

Ryan Wolfington and Marty Hennessy officially started this Foundation in 2004. At first they only wanted to create the best environment possible for one child, Frideric Prandecki, so he could make the right choices and earn a college scholarship. Ryan and Marty supported Frideric through some tumultuous times, but in the spring of 2006 Frideric earned that college scholarship.

Right away, Ryan and Marty recognized the power the proper combination of mentoring, focus on education, and dedication to athletics could have on a child's life. Thankfully, so did many others, and thus, we grew. Slowly at first, but fast forward 10 years and over 70 different children have come through our Leadership program resulting in over 70 college scholarships. And there are many more following in their footsteps.

Ten years ago, the growth we would experience and the impact we would have, was unforeseeable. We were started by Ryan Wolfington and Marty Hennessy as simply a labor of love. But we have organically grown to include almost the whole of the Southern Nevada Tennis Community, creating in the process a nationwide network of friends, and lifetime relationships. 

We inspire and guide children to be their best self. Not simply the best athlete, or the best student. Our sole focus is to inspire a child to be a well-rounded, happy person. No matter what the future holds for us, that goal will never change.
