Thank you everyone for a great JTL season for Old Pike! I truly appreciate all the help that I received at our home matches from the parent volunteers. We are looking for someone to take over coordinating tennis next year for Old Pike. All that is required is a pre-season meeting for JTL, sending out the weekly schedules via email and submitting scores on-line. Please let me know if you are interested in taking over this position. I am only stepping down because with Gavin not having a team for Old Pike, I would like to help out where he is playing at. With that, here is a recap of last week and this weeks schedules:

Tennis Team Newsletter
We will have individual and team pictures taken this Friday 6/16/17. We will begin pictures at 9:00 am for individuals. Team picture at 9:30. If you need a picture form please pick one up at practice and bring Friday, otherwise they will be available that day.
We will have one last spirit wear order. If you need anything including tennis shirts please order now. I cannot order personalized swim caps at this point. If you want anything ordered this is your last chance. Please pick up order forms in the snack bar. They are due Tuesday at noon. I will also be putting in anything we haven’t received.
From our Athletic Director:
As many of you know this is my 7th year running the swim team. I am ready to step out of this role and do something else for the club. I am looking for volunteers to train this season for next year’s swim team. If you are interested please see me. It is much easier if we have several people running different aspects of the team, rather than one running the whole thing. With our 13 and over age group being the largest we need to train some of the younger athletes’ parents in the following position to keep the team running. I am looking for:
2018 Club Volunteer Coordinator
2018 Club Spirit Wear Coordinator
2018 Swim Meet Director
2018 Swim Stroke and Turn judges

Have a Funtastic Week-Go SHARKS!!
Welcome to the 2017 Summer Season of Old Pike Tennis!
We are super excited to welcome back Coach Joe and all of our returning and new players.
JTL matches will start the week of June 5th-10th. Unfortunately due to numbers, we will not have any JTL 10 & U teams nor 12 & U Boys teams this season, but they are still able to practice daily and if willing, to play up an age group. If you have a child that was registered in those age groups and we have not spoken yet, please feel free to give me a call 816-309-1357. I tried to reach out to those that this pertained to, but..I haven't made contact with a few of you.
Match Days and Times:
12 & U: Tuesdays at 1:00
13 & O: Thursdays at 1:00
We will need at least 4 players each week for match play. If your player is unable to make any of the matches, please let myself or Coach Joe know as soon as possible so that we can ensure that we have enough players for each of our matches. Also, all 13 & O Home matches must provide a new can of balls for play and provide water on the courts for the players.
12 & U and 13 & O matches will have a 10 minute warm up period and play an 8 game Pro Set. Match teams can consist of at least 4 players and up to 8 players each week. Coach Joe will decide that ladder order for each weeks matches. All home matches will be played at Winnetonka High School, 5815 NE 48th St, Kansas City, MO 64119.
I am also in need of Parent Volunteers for each of the above age groups to help out at home and away matches and to report scores to me the day of matches for input. Please email/text me if you are able to help. Madduxkl@aol.com/816-309-1357.
Thank you and I look forward to another FUN and Successful season of Old Pike Tennis!
