Boys & girls tennis
GRACEAC tennis operates as a Catholic United sport. This means that the students at GRACEAC member schools combine together to form a Catholic United team or teams, and play against other schools in an outside league, or independent schedule. Tennis is open to students in 6th-8th grade.
As a Catholic United sport, team specifics are determined by GRACEAC. This includes who the coach is, when/where practices are held, uniforms, etc. The league our teams are in set the rules and game schedules. In the event of no organized league and scheduling is done independently, teams will agree to a set of rules. The tennis season consists of a combination of practices & matches. We are not in a organized league for tennis, but we schedule independently with other local area schools such as Unity Christian, Calvin Christian, Byron Center, & NorthPointe Christian.
The Catholic United tennis program is large enough that we can split into two teams - Catholic United West (CUW) & Catholic United East (CUE). CUW's home courts are the six tennis courts at Aberdeen Park, located at 2230 Eastern Ave. NE Grand Rapids, MI 49505. CUE's home courts are the three tennis courts at MacKay Jaycee Park, located at 2531 Kalamazoo Ave SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49507. Parents are welcome to choose which team they want their child to participate on. In addition to matches against the following schools listed above, we will also schedule matches between the CUW and CUE teams.
Catholic United tennis takes place in the spring season. Practices typically do not begin until after Spring Break, so we are looking at starting the week of April 11. The season will conclude no later than May 26. GRACEAC will provide your child with a uniform top, which will be returned at the end of the season. Parents will need to provide their child with a tennis racquet, tennis shoes, and a water bottle for each practice/match. Any color shorts will work fine.
Matches will run as doubles with.....
