courts

 Please provide your own racket
 Give 100% every day
 When a coach asks you to do something, you do it, hustling
while you do it.
 Tutorials: Unless you are failing or close to failing, you need to
be at practice. Talk to your teachers about being in HR for
tutorials.
 NBMS practices at the high school and then rides a bus back to
school.
MATCHES
 We will play matches on Mondays, Tuesdays, or Thursdays
with tournaments on some Saturdays in the Spring.
 Tuesday and Thursday matches will start at 4:00
 Saturday matches are at 8:00
 Players who win challenge matches during practice and who
are high enough on the ladder will travel to matches.
 Directions to matches can be found on the Edublogs BMS
Tennis Web Site
GRADES, BAND, TUTORIALS
 Players must keep their grade above a 70. Failure
to do so for a six week period means that you
must go to tutorials. Failing for 2 six week
periods could remove you from the team
 If you are missing practice for band, you must
come after your rehearsal or report to the other
athletic course at school to work out.
 Tutorials is not for doing work, it is for getting
help if you are failing or close to failing, or if you
have missed a class and need to get makeup
work. Not for doing homework.

effort, dressing down, and showing up for
matches.
