Kat’s view on HAT

I believe that HAT is on the right track to becoming one of the best tennis academies found across the nation and with the help of the HAT Fund I think we can really help a lot of kids out there who aren’t receiving the type of help and aid that they should be getting. With that help we can give them a different look at the world around them. We’re not just talking about coaching tennis but also mentoring and giving kids life skills that you don’t get by just being an athlete on the court. I was a late bloomer. I didn’t pick up my first tennis racket until I was 15 but I had three coaches who saw potential and drive in me. They were always around to hit with me, teach me, or help me in any way that I needed at the drop of a hat, no matter what time it was, and that’s why I’ve become the person that I am today and why I like being here, at HAT and the HAT Fund. I feel like I can give back and make a difference by being a great coach and mentor for the kids out there in need just like my coaches were for me.
