The NOAH Tennis Program provides competitive opportunities to home school players as members of a team participating in regular drills & practices as well as scrimmages, duals, and tournaments against public and private schools. Tryouts for the team are typically held in the fall, but individuals may be allowed to tryout in the spring as well. Fall practices are held in the months of September and October. Spring practices begin in February with matches taking place in the months of March, April, and May. No formal practices are conducted in the summer.
Info on Teams
The Junior High Tennis Team is comprised of both Girls and Boys teams, ages 10-14 or Grades 6-9. A player must be able to judge where the ball is going, sustain a slow to medium paced rally of several shots with someone of similar ability using forehand and backhand strokes, serves, and volleys with moderate success. A player must also be able to keep score unassisted, call their own lines, and have a basic understanding of the rules of the game. Players younger than 6th grade with playing experience, and/or proper ability level may be allowed to practice with the team, but may not be able to participate in competitive events. Students below this level are encouraged to improve their skills through private lessons and/or drills that are offered in several places in the Tulsa Metro and surrounding areas.
The High School Tennis Team is comprised of both Girls and Boys teams ages 15-18 or Grades 9-12. A 9th grade player begins on the JH team, but may be allowed to participate with the HS team. Several factors are considered in this decision. The criteria mentioned above for the JH is expected at a higher level and includes learning & executing advanced techniques and strategies for both singles and doubles play.
Players new to NOAH tennis will need to complete the Online Registration and a Physical (Form) for each school year. Returning players do not need to register online for the spring, but will have to read the Parent and Athlete handbook, fill out the Code of Conduct and Medical Release Authorization Forms, complete a Physical (Form) for each school year, and update information on the Registration Form.
All players must have turned in their Code of Conduct, Medical Release & Authorization, and Player Physical Forms before they can participate in any competitive event.
Fall Tennis Fees are $100.00 for the first individual and $75.00 for each addition family member. Spring Tennis fees are $125.00 for first individual, $100 for the second, and $75 for each consecutive player from the same family.
Payment can be made with check or cash. Checks should be made out to NOAH Tennis.
Currently, there is no online option available. We hope to have one added in the near future.
Communication with all players and families is usually initiated via email. As the season begins, large amounts of information will be communicated via the website and email. Smaller amounts of information will be communicated through the GroupMe App. Avenue of communication depends on the amount of information provided and the amount of time needed to get that information out.
Uniforms are used only the spring semester and not included with the regular fees. Information regarding uniforms is typically shared in December or January and ordered shortly after that. Normally, the same uniform is used for two or three years before redesigning them.
