It was created by the SixFinger Foundation as an alternative for Sarasota families seeking a 360 degree approach to their child's development. Rather than just focusing on a sport we work with children and their families throughout the entire academic year to ensure both athletic and academic progress. We are preparing to launch our academic support services in September. Our inaugural golf tournament will help support our program.
