This page provides information about Bear Creek's girls varsity and JV tennis program.
Registration Fee: $350 + $110 for warm-up jacket, uniform top, uniform hat, and team T-shirt
Additional Costs: Include uniform, gear, and equipment (see below)
Anticipated Levels of Play
The girls tennis program generally offers both JV and varsity teams, though this is entirely dependent on the number of participants at the start of the season. We will communicate our plan to run a JV program just prior to the start of the season.
Practice and Game Schedule
The girls tennis team practices every day from 4:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. The team generally schedules 12 – 16 regular season matches, 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 Girls Tennis Calendar (above).
Transportation is not provided for practices or 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), black skirt, and proper court shoes. Feel free to contact the coach if you have questions about the type of racket, shoes, or skirt required. Players should also bring sunblock, hats/visors, and plenty of water to practices and matches throughout the season. The spring season can be cold and wet. Players may order the optional rain gear, but please plan accordingly and bring some warmer practice gear each day.
The official tennis team uniform includes a green and/or black Bear Creek tank, jacket, and hat (included in player registration fee). Optional gear includes rain gear and black warm-up pants. Players may reuse the same uniform pieces in subsequent years. Complete the gear size and optional gear order forms (see top of page) to ensure the correct sizes are available.
Out of Season Activities
The girls tennis team does not currently participate in official out of season activities. From time to time (e.g., in the summer), the girls will organize optional captain-led practices that are generally run and promoted on their own. Bear Creek promotes and encourages girls to sign up and play tennis out of season through the various camps and tennis programs in the region.
