FCHS Girls Tennis Team – Preseason Players Meeting and Uniform Ordering
The FCHS Girls Tennis Team will be having preseason players meetings on Monday, December 17th.
There are 2 meeting times to pick from: 3-3:30pm or 5:15-5:45pm. We will meet in Room PE-1, in the Athletic hallway.
This meeting is for players only. A parent/player meeting will be held in February.
Any girls interested in playing on the tennis team this spring should plan to attend one of these meetings. We will review the timeline for optional preseason practice sessions in January & February, our preseason camp and tryouts/challenge matches.
And most importantly, we will be reviewing the online order process for our team uniforms. Samples will be available at the meeting for sizing, etc.
Team Uniforms will need to be ordered before January 1st, 2019! We will send out detailed online ordering information after this meeting date.
Tennis is a “no cut” sport! We encourage all girls, even if you have never played tennis before, to join our team! Tryouts and challenge matches are for our varsity and top JV spots, but everyone who wants to play can be a big part of our team! Please share this information with girls who may not be on my distribution list, but who might be interested.

Optional Open Court Tennis Sessions Fall 2018 – updated Nov 19

We are going to continue our optional open court sessions for all FCHS girls interested in playing tennis this coming spring.
Optional practices will be held every Tuesday and Thursday from 3-4:30pm, weather permitting.
** No practice Thursday, Nov 22 – Happy Thanksgiving!! **
Please understand that these sessions are optional. I know that many of you are involved in fall sports and other school activities right now. But if you can make it, we would love to see you out on the courts!
Most of our optional open court sessions will involve match play. This is a great time to work on your match play and get ready for tryouts/challenge matches in February.
Please pay attention to the weather forecasts and dress appropriately.
We will use the team email list and our REMIND system to alert everyone if we need to cancel any of these sessions, due to weather or coach availability.

Fundraising Opportunity for Girls Tennis Players
We have organized a fundraising opportunity for FCHS girls tennis team players and families, to raise funds for the upcoming season. Fundraising is optional. Any funds raised by an individual player will be used only for that player, and may be put towards uniform costs, equipment needs, or the PSD Athletic Fee ($120 for PSD Non-Charter Students and $180 for Home-Based, Charter & Private School Students).

Here is the fundraising program we are working with:

  1. Old Chicago Pizza Palz Cards

This is a great deal! The Pizza Palz cards cost the player $6 each. They are then sold for $11 each – so the player makes a $5 fundraising profit on each card sold. The cards are good for any large pizza at Old Chicago restaurants, up to a value of $25!! Really a great deal not only for the fundraiser but also for those who purchase the cards! Interested players/families would need to commit to selling minimum 10 cards.

I need to know how many cards each player/family would like to sell. If interested, please let Coach Joann know ASAP and she will get you an order form. Please note, the Old Chicago Pizza Palz Cards will need to be paid for in advance by each family ($6 per card ordered), then you just keep the cards and the $5 profit for each card sold.
