New York Junior Tennis & Learning (NYJTL) 

NYJTL is a free afterschool program for K-5th grades students at PS 187. NYJTL’s mission is to develop the character of young people through tennis and education for a lifetime of success on and off the court. Since 1971, NYJTL has changed lives through tennis, education, healthy living, and character development programs.  


This school year we are offering programming both in person and remotely. So feel free to apply if you are full remote, or on a hybrid schedule.  


NYJTL is more than a tennis program. We offer enriched activities in subjects like music, art, literacy, social and emotional learning, stem, yoga, dance, and fitness. All activities follow Covid’ 19 safety guidelines and are socially distanced. Some physical activities have been modified to fit these criteria. NYJTL is always looking to grow and make the learning experience greater for the participants. To make NYJTL’s remote learning even better we have partnered with Practice Makes Perfect and Dancing Classrooms.  


Perfect is a tutoring vendor that has helped to bridge the gaps our scholars may be facing with tutoring services and academic support.  Practice makes perfect also offers fun engaging educational activities, so far, they have taught the participants about Ocean animals like the megalodon shark, music math, and used a home design game to learn how to find the area of a room to name a few. 


Dancing Classroom provides both in person and virtual instruction by trained professionals to your scholars. The Dancing Classroom Curriculum works in support of our scholars Social Emotional learning by fostering respect, teamwork, confidence and a sense of joy and accomplishment for their involvement. So far, the participants have learned the Tango, Foxtrot, Swing, Meringue and so many other dances. The participants are not only taught the dance but the history of where the dance comes from and the music that goes along with it. Dancing Classroom is a fun way to get the participants up and moving and can also be a family experience as we have had whole families up and dancing. Dancing will continue with a NYJTL activity specialist upon contract completion. 


All P.S. 187 students and community friends that complete an application and start after school in person and/or virtually will receive a free backpack and supplies as well as a guaranteed enrollment slot in our 7-week enrichment summer camp program!
