Varsity Players practices begin on August 5!


IMPORTANT DEADLINES APPROACHING! Be sure to have your online paperwork completed and submitted by August 2. Each student athlete must complete electronic forms for the CHS Athletics Department and turn in a paper copy of their physical prior to being allowed to practice with the team. PLEASE be sure to COMPLETE ALL THE FORMS for next year as soon as possible. Links are below. DON"T FORGET THE VOLUNTEER FORM. Parents of the 2019-2020 Tennis Team are expected to volunteer and support CHS Tennis!


Varsity players can turn them in M-F, 5-9pm at the tennis center. JV/Fr can bring them on the first day of school (or they can bring them in as above, just not as critical).


AUGUST 15 -- SAVE THE DATE for the MANDATORY Parent/Player Meeting. This is the season Kick Off/Meet the Coaches, Players and Booster Board on August 15, 2019 at 6:00pm 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.


Spirit Items such as personalized Player Yard Signs, Bag Tags and Varsity Decals for Varsity players to add to their signs are available to order at www.coppelltennis.net/ Forms tab. We plan to order by Wednesday, July 31, 2019, and have them available to pick up at the Tennis Kick Off/Meet the Players/Swag Party on August 15, 2019.


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.

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

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.


COMPLETE THE VOLUNTEER FORM. Parents of the 2019-2020 Tennis Team are expected to volunteer and support CHS Tennis! This form can be found on www.coppelltennis.net under forms or through this Volunteer link. If you have yet to complete the volunteer forms, they need to be completed ASAP. Of course, we are ALL BUSY; however, parents are expected to support and volunteer to keep the tennis team running smoothly. If we each help out in some way, all of our children benefit. Volunteer opportunities exist in both big and small ways, including both remote and physically present opportunities. Everyone can find some time to contribute for the sake of their child. Please complete the form so that we can know in what ways you are interested in helping.
