FCHS Girls Tennis
Optional Open Court Tennis Sessions Fall 2018 – updated Oct 15
We are going to start optional open court sessions for all FCHS girls interested in playing tennis this coming spring.
Starting next week, Oct 23 and Oct 25, we will begin our Tuesday and Thursday optional open court practices.
We will go from 3-4:30pm
** no open court the week of Oct 15-19 due to snow and no school Thursday and Friday **
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. If we have more than 1 coach available, we may add some drills and technical skill work at these sessions.
Please pay attention to the weather forecasts and dress appropriately. It has been gorgeous and warm lately, but the cooler autumn fall weather is right around the corner.
Coach Tatyana, Coach Tim and Coach Joann will be supervising these optional sessions, but we are not always going to all be there. 1-2 of us will be there each session.
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:
- 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.
Any questions? Contact Coach Joann Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org
