Class, Team, Effort
 Each team should represent Shakopee Public
Schools and the Shakopee Tennis Program in a
positive way.
 Show sportsmanship and leadership at every level.
 Team
 There is a strong emphasis on “team” when playing
for Shakopee Tennis.
 Coaches, players and families should keep a “play as
a team” mentality throughout the season.
 Effort
 Players will show full effort and preparedness at
each practice and match.
Practices and Matches
 Junior High Team
 Practices will be at the Junior High from 3:004:30pm Monday-Friday on non-match days.
 All practices and matches are mandatory. However,
we are lenient when it comes to excusing absences
on the Junior High Team. Please communicate with
the coaches in advance if you have conflicts.
 Home matches are scheduled to begin at 4:00pm.
However, once both teams are ready, we usually
begin the match. Sometimes we start at 3:30pm or
earlier. The coaches will talk before the match to
decide on the format.
Practices and Matches
 Junior Varsity Team
 Junior Varsity practice is at the High School from
3:45-5:30pm on non-match days.
 All practices and matches are mandatory. However,
we are lenient when it comes to excusing absences
on the Junior Varsity Team. Please communicate
with the coach in advance if you have any conflicts.
 Home matches are normally split between the High
School and West Junior High. The coaches will talk
the day of the match to decide on the format.
Practices and Matches
 Varsity Team
 Varsity has practice at the High School from 3:45-5:30pm.
However, players tend to stay past that time.
 All practices and matches are mandatory. Because we have a
focus on winning with the Varsity team, a high level of
commitment is expected. One unexcused absence is a
minimum of a one-match suspension. A second unexcused
absence will lead to removal from the Varsity team.
 Unexcused vs. Excused Absences: If you are on Varsity,
tennis should be #4 in your life for the season. Guidelines
for excused absences (in no particular order):
 Family
 School
 Religion
Varsity Match Format
 The Varsity format is 4 singles players and 3
doubles teams. Those 7 matches decide who
wins each Varsity match. We will also usually
have one or two exhibition matches.
 Every Varsity player is expected to stay at
each competition until ALL matches are
complete and have been told from the coaches
they may leave.
 Showing support for teammates through good
sportsmanship is expected from each player.
