Snacks & Drinks & Drivers

For home matches – we need to provide snacks and drinks. Our system for donations is as follows: if your child is playing in Singles, please bring a Snack (both start with “S”, that’s the system). If your child is playing Doubles, please bring something to Drink. Chips, crackers, fruit, pretzels, Gatorade, water, juice, etc. is appropriate. For away matches – coaches will travel with the team, but we WILL need parent volunteers to drive.

What to Wear

Please make sure your player is wearing non-marking tennis shoes. There is no official uniform, but we suggest that the players wear shorts with pockets so that they can hold a second ball while serving. Players can also wear compression shorts under shorts or skirts to hold the second ball. Play is impeded if you have to go and get a second ball if you miss the first serve.

Volunteers

There is always a need for parent participation as it takes many volunteers to make these matches and meets happen. These are the major types of volunteer help we need:

  1. Drive to matches Wednesdays (8:30 a.m. to about Noon)
  2. Collect $ at end of season for coaches’ gift

If you are interested, please contact tennisrep@shrasharks.org to sign up!


Please check the main TEAMS page for the age group practice schedules. We look forward to seeing you all again soon and welcome your feedback and questions (and offers to volunteer!).
