Tucson JCC tennis program helps kids on autism spectrum grow, interact with others

Tucson’s JCC is joining a growing network of facilities across the country that helps kids and teens with autism play and interact with others through tennis.

Next Sunday’s launch of the ACEing Autism program at the Tucson JCC, 3800 E. River Road, is the idea of Miguel Coelho, who moved from Barcelona in 2018.

Since his arrival at the JCC this spring, Coelho — the director of racquet sports — has been making changes for the better, with the launch of ACEing Autism his biggest endeavor yet.

He says it’s just the beginning.
