Feb. 12, 2013 - Spring is just around the corner which means FPS tennis is starting up! I'm super excited about this upcoming season and I would like to welcome back all of my returning players, as well as the new ones! I wanted to give you the highlights regarding practices, matches, fees, etc. All of you on this list are being contacted because your child signed up to be a part of this team. I'm always thrilled that so many want to be involved in tennis! I did want to tell those who are new to the team, this is a Varsity team and we will be competing at that level. However, most schools in our region also have some beginner players, so it works out well and everyone enjoys it!
We will be practicing every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday until our Region Tournament on April 17th. Practices are held at Kenworth Park. It will be your responsibility to make sure your child has a ride to and from practice. Some practices we will be taking the bus and some will need to be parent or student drivers. IF anyone wants to volunteer to be the team mom and coordinate all of this, PLEASE let me know.
The fee for playing is $150.00. I have already ordered all of their team apparel, except everyone who does not have a (girls) white tennis skirt and (boys) white shorts need to purchase that. Also, a pair of court (tennis) shoes. This year I ordered a navy pullover embroidered fleece, along with a sweatshirt and t-shirt for practices. Their Nike shirts are on order with the sizes they have already provided me. Fees will need to be paid prior to our first match and/or a payment plan arranged with Christy in the office.
Below is our schedule:
March 11 - Home vs. Arlington
March 13 -Away Johnson
March 18 - Oak Mountain
March 20 - Home vs. Johnson
