Calling All Tennis Players
The season will be beginning in a month and we are looking for parent(s) that would be willing to help coach the team.  It isn't very time consuming - two practices and one match per week, starting at the end of March/beginning of April until the middle of May.  My work schedule is uncertain for the spring and if I don't have the flexibility I wouldn't be able to coach.  If any parent(s) would like to contact me with any questions you can reach me at (414) 380-3624. I would be happy to help anyway I could.  If the parents coach this year the school district would look into taking over the team next year.
