2023 Nortech Nanook Tennis Tournament Information

Please join us during the last weekend of 2023 for some fun tennis competitions.
This program is made possible by the generous donations by members of the tennis community as well as local businesses made for the Raising the Hoops project.

Divisions are organized into 2.5 to 3 hour time slots to accommodate busy holiday schedules.
I am hoping there is something for everyone (14 years or older).

Registration is FREE (except where otherwise noted, i.e. the verified UTR divisions). 
Please register EARLY. I will adjust the divisions and schedule based on player interest.
If certain divisions don’t have sufficient enrollments by 12/22, they may be canceled in favor of divisions that are more popular.

Donations to FTA are encouraged. Please add your donation when registering at fairbankstennis.com.
These donations will be used to cover balls and administrative costs of this event - and to support this and future FTA programming.

If more than the maximum number of players register for certain divisions, players will be selected by skill-level to create fun match ups for everyone. Please check the updated schedule and divisions in the days leading up the event to check your assigned divisions. Keep in in mind that schedule may change. If YOUR schedule/availability changes, please contact Sabine immediately.

This is a LOT of organize, so please keep that in mind when communicating with organizers.

Registration is Required through Three Websites:

*** IMPORTANT: Players must complete the following registrations prior to their first practice. ***

FTA Website: https://www.fairbankstennis.com/

Register players, sign all waivers, and pay the registration fee for the 2023 High School season. Team rosters for practices are provided to coaches based on registration with FTA through this website. Email [email protected] with any questions.

Big Teams Website (formerly PlanetHS): https://studentcentral.bigteams.com/

Register your player with their school to participate in all school activities. This has multiple waivers and is the location that a player’s required Sports Physical must be uploaded to before a player can participate in practices.  Contact your School’s Activities Coordinator if you have any questions.

Universal Tennis: https://www.universaltennis.com

FTA utilizes Universal Tennis for keeping track of match scores and regional ranking for players. This is also useful for comparison to players in Anchorage and outside of Alaska. Register for a free account if your player is new to FTA. Returning players should use their existing account from previous seasons. Email [email protected] with any questions.

Other Useful Information

District Activities: https://www.k12northstar.org/Page/9063

District webpage for all activities, including sports. Please note that this includes key information for Homeschool (Alternative Education) students, including a Google Form to register for an activity with the District. Homeschool students have an additional fee for doing each/every activity. This is NOT an FTA fee and must be coordinated directly with the District or your School’s Activities Coordinator. 

Alaska School Activities Association (ASAA) Alternative Education Requirements:

https://asaa.org/eligibility/alternative-education/

All players in High School Tennis must be eligible students to participate in an activity, as determined and verified by their school. The District follows the ASAA requirements for Alternative Education students. Any questions or issues related to eligibility must be addressed through the District or your School’s Activities Coordinator.

Sports Physicals:

Sports physicals are parents’ responsibility and must be uploaded through Big Teams before a player will be eligible to practice for High School Tennis. A sports physical is valid for 18 months and must be valid through the end of the sports season. Physicals are not available in any of the schools. Local health care providers have physical exam forms in their offices. Please contact your local health care provider if you have any questions about obtaining a physical.

 

Eligibility for Practices and Matches

ASAA rules require a player to have a minimum of ten practices to participate in matches. Limited exceptions may be provided for multisport athletes and must be evaluated through your School. Minimum grades and the grade check schedule for academic eligibility for local matches, travel matches, and the state tournament travel may vary by School. In addition, class period and daily tardiness and/or absences will impact your players eligibility to participate in practices and matches. Please direct all questions regarding academic eligibility rules to your School’s Activities Coordinator. In addition to academic eligibility from the school, FTA HS Coaches may have team policies that impact eligibility for matches and practices.
