Tennis

Available to grades: 1st - 8th

The St. Mary CYO tennis team is open to St. Mary school, CCD, and Home schooled parish students in grades 1-8. Our goal is to have fun and develop the skills and sportsmanship necessary to become successful tennis players. Players of all levels (beginner-advanced) are welcome. Players will be placed on teams according to ability/experience and age. Generally, players in grades 1-3 receive instruction with no matches and players in grades 4-8 receive instruction and compete against other schools in the Northern Virginia Junior CYO.

The season runs from end-September through end-October, including playoffs for competing teams. Practices are usually once/week at local public or private courts after school. Matches for competing teams are typically on Sunday afternoons at Fairfax County public schools across Northern Virginia.

Registration opens: 8/24/18

Registration closes: 9/5/18

Registration Fee: $40 (Includes Team Shirt; all players will need a 2018 shirt)

Please register as early as possible! Space is limited, and a waitlist may be initiated if necessary!
