Join The Team

Information For Students

Racquet Up Detroit currently enrolls participants through a school partnership model, including the following schools:

  • Schulze Academy
  • MacDowell Prep Academy
  • University YES Academy
  • Detroit Achievement Academy
  • FLICS (Foreign Language Immersion and Cultural Studies)

School students are eligible to enroll through one of these schools in their 5th or 6th grade year through an annual recruitment drive starting in October. One need not be a talented athlete nor a straight “A” student to earn a spot on the team. Participants are selected based on their desire to join the team, effort, ability to handle the rigors of the demanding program, and their positive attitude. For more information about joining the program, please contact Tammy Hurvitz, Director of Operations and Growth:
