Boys Tennis Quick Facts

Fees

Registration Fee: $350 + $90 for a uniform top, uniform hat*, warm-up hoodie* (green or gray), and a team T-shirt
Additional Costs: Include gear, equipment, any team-related trips and activities (see below)

* Some items are distributed every other year, but the costs are amortized over two years.

Anticipated Levels of Play

The boys tennis program generally offers both JV and varsity teams. This is entirely dependent on the numbers at the start of the season however. The 2018 season will have a varsity team and JV team and we anticipate to the same for the 2019 season as well.

Practice and Game Schedule

The boys tennis team practices every day from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 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 4:30 p.m. and are played at Marymoor Park (our home courts). Away games usually involved early dismissals from class as we travel to games. See Boys Tennis Calendar (above).

Transportation

Transportation not provided for practices and home games at Marymoor Park.  For away games, 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), white shorts with pockets, and the proper non-marking court shoes. 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 plenty of water to practices and matches throughout the season.

The official tennis team uniform includes a Bear Creek jersey and a warm-up hoody which must be ordered the first time a player registers for boys tennis (included in new player registration fee). Complete the gear order form to ensure the correct sizes are available. Players may reuse the same uniform shirt and warm-up hoody in subsequent years.

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. Bear Creek promotes and encourages boys to sign up and play tennis out of season through the various camps and tennis programs in the region.
