DAVIS, Calif. - UC Davis women's tennis head coach Bill Maze, assistant coach Sara Jackson and their team recently teamed up with Harper for Kids for a school assembly at Dewey Elementary School.

Each player shared their thoughts regarding their favorite tenet from John Wooden's Pyramid of Success in front of over 500 students grades K-6 before hosting a tennis skills demonstration.

On three 36-foot QuickStart courts provided through HFK's partnership with the USTA, Maze, Jackson and members of the women's tennis team had an opportunity to teach tennis fundamentals first-hand and compete against numerous Dewey students. 

By complementing their playing experience with the 14 blocks that comprise the Pyramid of Success, kids in attendance learned how to become a more positive and productive person through this character-based assembly and outdoor skills presentation.
