The Spring Student Athletes Group Photo is now set for Thursday, March 13 at 2:45 p.m., immediately before the Girls Tennis team boards the bus for the rescheduled Annandale scrimmage.  Girls team members should assemble at the Locker Room (by 2:30 p.m.) to prepare for the photo and scrimmage, and go together to the photo location (bleachers).  Team members should wear black pants (or shorts/skorts) with a black long-sleeve top or warm jacket, and everyone will receive a Hawks Athletics T-shirt to put on top. The team will depart for the scrimmage directly after the group photo.  This is the photo of all the athletes from all Spring teams, together.

The Girls Tennis Team Photo and Individual Photos for tennis athletes will be Friday, March 14, so members should meet at the Locker Room afterschool (2:20) for an abbreviated Practice and plan to be in position on court (shortest to tallest, in four rows) when the photographer arrives for the 3:45 p.m. appointment.  Please wear weather-appropriate black tops and pants (or shorts/skorts) and your Hawks Athletics T-shirt on top.  The appointment is a mere 15 minutes -- for taking the team photo and all individual photos -- so it's critical that Girls be ready.  Order forms for photos will be available at Student Activities and via coaches, and a blank form is attached to this message.  (Please bring your order form and payment for Victor O'Neill Studio!) 

The planned location for the Athletes Group Photo is outside (on the bleachers), and on the Tennis Courts for Girls Tennis Team and Individual Photos.  Given the weather lately, locations may change, so please report to the team early!  Here's the full schedule for Spring Athletics photos:

Hawks Tennis Order Form Available on Team Files. Due 3/7/14 or ASAP

     The Spirit Wear order form for Hayfield Hawks Tennis is now available online under the Girls Tennis Team Files tab.  Girls interested in playing Varsity Matches are asked to purchase the Augusta Medalist warm-up jacket and pant set, or at least the jacket.  Both the jacket and the pants have performance fabric and ample pockets.  The warm-up jacket will have team embroidery, and optional player name embroidery, and has raglan sleeves to allow for fluid shoulder motion, as needed for tennis serves.  The warm-up jacket and pant set cost is $46 (less than in 2013), and the jacket is $31, including team embroidery and a player's name if desired.  Team members may order the jacket and pants in different sizes.  The 2013 team members were impressed with the high quality of the warm-ups, and some have worn their items at 2014 Tryouts.    
     The order form also has Short-sleeve and Long-sleeve T-shirts in performance fabric, a Hoodie Sweatshirt with pouch pocket, a nylon Drawstring Bag with zipper compartment, and a cotton blend crew neck T-shirt -- all with team screen printing.  Order form items are shown in team colors; some items are available in additional colors, for those who want an item in more than one color.            
     Individual order forms and associated funds are due ASAP, by Friday, March 7, please, to your tennis team coach.  We'd like to order them a week earlier so we get delivery sooner, too.  Original deadline was March 14, and please talk with your coach if you need more time to assemble your form and funds.

Scrimmage and Match Cancellation and Postponement

When weather or another condition results in teams not being able to play a Scrimmage, the teams try to reschedule on a date before the first Match; if none is open, a scrimmage may be canceled.  When teams can't play Matches, the Student Activities staff often treats those as postponed and coordinates another date to play that Match at the same courts as on the original schedule (and we'll work to get a bus as needed).  This is particularly important when the Match affects standings of teams in the Conference.  Most Matches occur on the next available date, and sometimes that may be more than a month later or at the end of the season.   

Thus, if the weather seems questionable for a Match, please note that we may not ride the bus or play a home Match, and instead may practice from 4 to 5:30 p.m. in the Gym, or may not practice or play at all that day, for example, if school is not in session.  Please plan ahead, and make arrangements so that if a Match does not occur, you can practice with the team if appropriate, or otherwise get home safely at a reasonable time after being dismissed.
