Boys Tennis Quick Facts

Fees

Registration Fee: $455 includes $350 registration fee plus $105 for a uniform jersey, uniform hat*, warm-up hoodie* (green/gray), and a team T-shirt.  (* These items are distributed every other year, but the costs are amortized over two years.)

Additional Costs: Include white shorts with pockets, plus gear, equipment, and any team-related trips and activities (see below).

Anticipated Levels of Play

The boys’ tennis program generally offers both JV and varsity teams, with all players practicing together and challenging each other for varsity spots. Last season we fielded a varsity team and JV team, and we anticipate the same for the upcoming season as well.

Practice and Game Schedule

The tennis team practices every day from 4:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. The team generally schedules 12 – 16 regular season games, which are played after school. There are some exceptions to this from time to time with some games taking place on a Saturday, or possibly at an away venue in the evening. Home games usually start at 4:00 p.m. and are played at Perrigo Park (our home courts). Away games usually involved early dismissals from class as we travel to games. See Boys Tennis Calendar (above).

Transportation

Transportation is not provided for practices and home games in Redmond. For away games outside of the Redmond area, transportation will be provided by the school, and the expectation is that students will travel together to all away games on the bus/van. Students are not allowed to drive their own vehicles or arrange their own transportation to away games.

Uniform, Gear, and Equipment

Required equipment includes tennis racquet(s), proper non-marking court shoes, and white shorts with pockets. Feel free to contact the coach if you have questions about the type of racket, shoes, or shorts required. Players should also bring sunblock, hats/visors, and water bottles to practices and matches throughout the season. The season can be cold and wet. Players should plan accordingly and bring some warmer practice gear each day. 

The official tennis team uniform includes a Bear Creek jersey, hat, and a warm-up hoodie (included in registration fee) as well as white shorts with pockets (purchased independently). Optional gear includes rain pants/jacket and black warm-up pants. Complete the gear size and optional gear order forms (see elsewhere on page) to ensure the correct sizes are available. Players will continue to wear the same hat and warm-up hoodie the following year.

Out of Season Activities

The boys’ tennis team does not currently participate in official out-of-season activities. From time to time (e.g., in the summer), the boys organize optional captain-led practices that are generally run and promoted on their own. Coach Morse encourages boys to sign up and play tennis out of season through the various camps, tennis programs, and with teammates in the region.
