Tennis banquet is Wednesday, June 1 6-9 pm in the new SW commons. Please send a headcount to Michelle or Sam Loomans ASAP. Players' meals sponsored by Booster funds: family and friends are $10/each. Hope to see you!
Let's have some fun and raise some money for all of the great things the Southwest Tennis Boosters provide.
What: Car Wash
Where: Holiday Station Store at 2448 Hennepin Avenue
When: Saturday, June 4 (rain date) from 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
All you have to do is show up at 11:00 a.m. with a bucket, some rags and lots of energy. Water, soap and signage will be provided.
Colin has made the fundraiser mandatory for the squad. We will also need 3-4 parents onsite at all times so let us know if you are able to help out. It's a great way to build community and fund the team. See you there!

From the Boosters:
Our tennis families generously fund the recurring costs of current and upcoming tennis seasons. Our team depends 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, great and small. Please see the form below to donate and join the boosters today!
Our fundraising car wash also brings in $600-800 and is fun for players and families-- and it gets the boys to have some skin in the game-- they work hard and are rewarded with a great banquet and indoor court time the next winter
It takes a little organizing effort on the part of the parents after the gas station is booked, so watch for more info to come!
What you get for your Investment (ROI):_vs._Similar activities' value:
10-12 winter captains’ practices_____________ $420 for 10-12 clinics
2h practice sessions, daily_________________ $50 student rate daily
15 regular season matches________________ $60 each tournament
daily coaching__________________________ $25 clinic coaching, per hour
Remember: your money supports the winter captains’ practices, the welcome pizza party, pre-match pasta parties, the end of year banquet, and coach stipends in addition to all off-season court time, so please be generous!
Please make contributions to Southwest Boys Tennis Boosters c/o ANN CAZABAN, 5000 QUEEN 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 ANN).
