MANDATORY PARENT MEETING--THIS THURSDAY, AUGUST 15, 2019, 6:15-7:30pm

Every year the athletic department requires each coach to hold a MANDATORY Parent/Player Meeting. This is the season Kick-Off/Meet the Coaches, Players and Booster Board on August 15, 2019, at 6:15pm in the CHS Commons. This is a MANDATORY PARENT MEETING required by the CHS Athletics Department to give parents needed information regarding the tennis program in general as well as expectations for both parents and players this year. Coach Foster and Coach Landa will introduce the 2019-2020 CHS Tennis Teams as well as deliver uniforms for the season. It is very important that you attend. If you are unable to attend, please contact Coach Foster directly at rfoster@coppellisd.com.

Breaking News

For all those new to Coppell Tennis, this newsletter is generally sent on Mondays during the season to Booster Club Members. Please contact Monica Cole if you have questions or if you would like the newsletter sent to an alternative email address.


URGENT NEED for an ATTORNEY who can volunteer to help us with our bylaws. Apparently, they have been lost over the years and must be replaced. If you can help out with this, please contact Kelley Parlier 972-768-0857 or kelley@yesdfw.com.

Coach's Report

Players and parents- Our varsity season is off to a great start! I am looking forward to seeing our other teams on Wednesday and starting workouts on Thursday. Here are a few important reminders:

1) We have a MANDATORY parent/player meeting on Thursday, 8/15 at 6:15 pm (in the CHS Commons)
2) Players who have not already turned their physicals in must do so on the first day of school.
3) Players MUST complete ALL electronic forms on the athletics website.


Required Athletic Forms ASAP

https://coppellathletics.net/sports/2017/9/5/forms.aspx

Be sure to choose BOTH Tennis & Team Tennis on the forms.


Required Physical Form to be Printed and Submitted to Coach Prior to Practice

https://www.coppellisd.com/cms/lib09/TX01000550/Centricity/Domain/427/201516/PrePhysForm15.pdf

CISD requires athletes to complete a pre-participation athletic evaluation each school year. For the 2019-2020 school year the Pre-Participation Physicals must be completed after April 1, 2019. Physicals completed prior to April 1, 2019 are not valid for the 2019-2020 school year.


Enjoy the last few days of summer!!!

Court Report

The Varsity Team has already begun its season!! They have worked hard in the sweltering heat to ready themselves for the matches. Emerging victorious in their first two matches, they have had a great start to the season!


CHS v Abilene High

It wasn't the prettiest start to the season, but the players found a way to fight through a slow start and brutal heat to eke out an 11-8 victory over a tough Abilene squad.


CHS v Frisco Centennial

The team had a wild ride against! Centennial! After several lead changes, the Cowboys pulled out the 10-9 victory over Frisco Centennial!


If you missed this match up, you really missed something. All players were on their feet supporting the team, the atmosphere was charged, and the stakes were high. It came down to the final two matches of the night. We had to win both to win the day, and both Arjun and Ice dug deep to clinch the win--each in a third set tiebreak, winning 10-8!! Great teamwork and support from everyone!!

Your Serve

We have had a VERY busy, productive summer!! We have collectively spent well over 125 hours before the start of the season
  • researching new ping pong tables, professional photographers, uniforms, signage, Booster insurance, sponsorships, spirit wear and more
  • Uniform Packet Inventory & Assembly
  • Accounting & Bookkeeping
  • Banking
  • Buying supplies
  • Engaging & scheduling professional photographer
  • Website updates
  • Collecting forms and payment
  • Contacting those whose forms and payments are past due
  • Planning & Preparation
  • Organizing
  • Newsletters
  • Photography
  • Meetings
  • and more...

As you can see a lot goes into making tennis a great organization for our kids!! 12 families donated an average of over 10 hours each this summer. If each family (parents and/or players) contributed about an hour over the entire summer, the work would be much lighter!


Boosters are looking for YOUR HELP. Please help us support our teams and help make this tennis program the best that it can be. GET INVOLVED!!


If you have a particular talent or idea that could be helpful, let us know. This is your chance to get more involved and understand more about how Coppell Tennis works.


Also, we are looking for parents who can help with new committees. Our immediate needs are finding a Fundraising Committee Chairperson, a Special Events Committee Chairperson, and a Spirit Wear Committee Chairperson. Please contact Monica Cole (972-978-7123 or schoolandchurch@gmail.com) for more info or to volunteer.
