Dear Parents, Coaches and Athletes,
The Miami Valley Tennis Coaches’ Association was established in 1986/7 to honor worthy student athletes in our area. Certificates were presented to the All-Area teams, Player of the Year, Team of the Year and Coach of the Year in Division I & II. As our Association gathered new members and found ways to raise money, we presented plaques instead of certificates, added Academic Awards to Seniors with 2 Varsity Letters and a GPA of 3.5 or higher and the President’s Award, as well as The Hall of Fame. In addition, the MVTCA is funding a Scholarship to a graduating senior beginning with the 2007/2008 school year.
We have been fortunate to have had many State Champions attend member schools that we’ve honored appropriately. Their names appear on the back.
Our responsibilities include advising the Ohio Tennis Coaches’ Association who in turn advise the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA); help improve the rules and regulations for the Sectional and District tournaments; and host the MVTCA Girls and Boys Annual Tennis Tournaments.
Area Clubs, businesses and parents have been very generous with donations in the past for which we are very grateful; however we are still in constant financial need. We would therefore be delighted if you could help us by donating in order that our Association may grow and continue to honor student/athletes in our area.
An option that some Schools have been enjoying in the past is pooling their donations together as a team, and then makes a final donation. This has been much appreciated!
Thank you for reading this letter and for promoting tennis in our area.
Our thanks in advance,
