KOTB was founded in 2000 with 20 scholarship kids joining our summer team at The Edge. Within a couple years my junior program was totally KOTB. We started doing programs in Burlington city schools in 2002. We bused kids into The Edge for 9 months and then had a large summer program at Roosevelt Park every summer. In 2015 we began a tennis relationship with Cuba and in 2017 rebuilt the courts at their national tennis center. That was the first bricks and mortar project in Cuba since the Eisenhower administration. We have since resurfaced those courts this year. Since Covid KOTB has morphed into a schools program, going to schools all over Vermont to play tennis in their gym classes. We average between 150-200 a day in our programs. We believe in the power of games and the power of fun.
