Season Kickoff and Parents' Meeting

August 6, 2017

A big crowd was on hand for the initial Parents’ Meeting for the 2017-2018 tennis season. Coach Clint Laukhuf talked about his goals for the year and his expectations for student athletes.  Individual accountability will be a primary focus. 

 

Jennifer Hagen, Booster Club Coordinator, highlighted the Club’s plans for the year as well.  Booster Club memberships are available at $25, $50 and $100 levels.  Memberships are tax deductible and enable seniors to be eligible for a Booster Club scholarship awarded each year.  Membership forms are available on the web site's Forms menu above.

Spirit Wear

Our initial Spirit Wear order will be placed August 9th.  This year the Booster Club will provide blue and red team shirts.  Varsity Boys will also receive a white polo shirt and two shorts.  Girls will receive a white tank and two skirts.  Additional uniforms can be purchased.  Forms are found under Forms on the main menu.

Fundraising

Fundraising plans were also announced.  One of our primary goals is to replace the shade structures on the courts. These were donated to the program and the district will not pay to maintain them. Also, funds go to pay for out of town tournaments, uniforms, equipment, and transportation FOR ALL PLAYERS. Mandy Draper is coordinating Fundraising.  See below for some of our opportunities:

 

Thursday, August 24th at Chipotle in Euless off of Glade Road

  • 5:00 - 9:00 pm and we will receive 50% of the proceeds

  • You will need to show the flier when you order your meal. Tell all of your friends and family!

Sonic Discount Cards

  • Each student will need to sell 5 cards each for $5.

  • You may take orders for the cards and turn your money into the drop box or you may prepay $25 for the cards

  • If you didn’t get them or if you want additional cards, contact Mandy Draper at mandymdraper@gmail.com or call her at 817-881-9574.

Serve-A-Thon

  • First month of school; based on number of serves “in” out of 100

  • Athletes will bring 10 stamped and addressed envelopes to family members or local businesses that would support the tennis program.

  • Sponsorship is in your athlete’s name and their information will be posted on the website in appreciation.

Sponsorships

  • If you have friends or family who would be interested in sponsoring our team, please pick up a sponsorship flier. There are three levels to join. Fliers can be downloaded here.

Flipgive

  • This is a website link where you can designate a percentage of what you purchase to go back to the tennis team.

  • https://www.flipgive.com/f/370322

  • Just create an account and start shopping!  It is super easy and if the stores are ones you frequent anyway, it makes sense.

Grapefest – September 14-17

  • More information to come

 

Concessions

Concessions will be handled by Lori Strickland and Doug Laukhuf.  We will have a Sign-up Genius link on this web site in the near future.  We’re planning to open the Concession Stand for all home matches.

 

Web site and Social Media

This web site will be used for general information about the tennis team as well as a calendar and links to all forms.

 

Facebook will include lots of photos of the team in action as well as posts about individual accomplishments.  (www.facebook.com/mustang10s)  Learn more about the companies who have generously donated money to sponsor our team.  Be sure to follow us. 

 

Twitter will have tournament results and announcements from the Coach.  (@ghs_tennis)

Generally we will not tag photos nor post individual photos without your approval.  Please advise if you don’t want your student athlete’s photo posted or identified.

 

If you have photos or news items, particularly about your student’s wins, send them to us at ghstennisnews@gmail.com.  We want to recognize tournament championships and qualifications for Champs and SuperChamps.  For more information about USTA tournaments, find it here.

 

Junior Team Tennis

In an effort to build our tennis program’s future, we will be forming teams to participate in the NorthEast Tarrant Junior Team Tennis League.  The fall season starts in late September and will include teams for 10-year-olds to 18-year-olds.  We’ll use this as a fundraiser and will involve high school players to mentor the younger players.  All matches are on Sunday afternoons.  For those interested in participating, we'll provide a sign-up form soon.

 

Also, NorthEast Tarrant Tennis offers reimbursement for attending out of town Challenger, CMZ and SCMZ tournaments up to $300 per year.  Here’s the form for that.
