From the Boosters:

In recent years, our tennis families have generously funded the recurring costs of current and upcoming tennis seasons. With the payment of our 2014 winter & spring court fees, we have drastically depleted those funds and are in need of new contributions to keep our boys on the courts and having fun. We depend on per-player contributions to meet all pre/current/and post-season costs.

We ask for a $75-per-player contribution, but ANY contribution amount is greatly appreciated. (Please see the form at end of document.)

What you get for your Investment (ROI):_vs._Similar activities valued at:

10-12 winter captains’ practices_____________ $350-450 (10-12 clinics)

2h practice sessions, daily_________________ $40-60 (2 h court time), daily

15 regular season matches________________ $50-100 (each tournament)

daily coaching__________________________ $40-75 private coach, per h.

Plus team meals, banquet, team travel and immeasurable fun and friendships with schoolmates VS. meals, travel costs, and difficulty making friends because players live across the metro area.

Please make contributions to Southwest Boys Tennis Boosters c/o Allison Stevens, 4500 York Ave S, Minneapolis MN 55410. To make a tax-deductible donation, make a check payable to Southwest High School and be sure to note “for Boys Tennis (preferably, still send to Allison). If you must mail directly to the school to qualify for matching funds from your employer, please notify Allison and send the check to Sharon Larson, c/o Southwest High School, 3414 W 47th, Minneapolis MN 55410.

Indoor Courts will be secured as necessary for weather: usually Reed Sweatt (RSFTC), Fred Wells (FWTEC), or Baseline (UofM)
