Welcome to the PKY Girls Tennis Page!
Please sign-up for our Team Remind App (Send a text to 81010 with the message @pkygirlst) by clicking this link. We use this for important news and updates throughout the season. You can download a cell phone app and check on this website to get updated announcements and info. I can also be reached at my school email of email@example.com.
Here are some important items to do/know about prior to the season.
Please make sure to have your physical forms submitted to Coach Barrett asap. In order for you to practice and play with the team this form must be completed and entered in the system prior to Jan.16th. Here are the two forms: https://fhsaa.com/documents/2020/3/26/el02_physical_2.pdf and https://fhsaa.com/documents/2020/8/10/el03_consent_2020_04.pdf
Our first practice will be the week of January 16th, which is a school holiday. I am still working on the season practice/match schedule. It will be posted here when completed. Again, players must have an up-to-date FHSAA Physical form filled out and on file with PK before ANY practice/match participation can occur.
These can be turned in at the front office or at the gym to Coach Barrett, our PKY Athletic Director. This is my first year coaching our Girls Tennis Team and I will have the help of our co- head coach, Dr. Ron Dearinger and our assistant coach, Ms. Molly Sexton.
You can check out specific information from the FHSAA here. Our District is 1A, R2, D4: https://fhsaa.com/sports/tennis
Practice Schedule for 2022-2023 Season:
Practices will be held at the Albert Ray Massey Park – Joyce Oransky Tennis Center at Westside Park located at 1001 NW 34th St, Gainesville, FL 32605. Practice will be twice weekly on Mondays and Wednesdays starting on January 16th and running until the end of the season. Each session will start at 3:30pm and finish by 5:30pm. Please be prompt with pick-up from practice.
Players are welcome to wear anything they feel comfortable in for practice sessions. The Westside courts are hard courts and we will be practicing on courts 5 & 6 located in the back left corner. We will do our best for practice to provide opportunities for players of all levels to participate. Our expectation is that ALL players support each other’s growth, keep things positive on the court, and encourage effort.
For matches girls should wear either black, white, or blue bottoms and the PKY team shirts. The official colors and tops will be discussed in advance of matches as the team will need to match for each game. Visors/hats and tennis shoes of any color are allowed.
