July 11 News from Nancy

 I am still pleading for volunteers to help with the State Games on August 7th at Woods in Lincoln.  We are short on volunteers to help with the Green Division.  They are the players that need a unified partner to play with them on the short courts.  It is super easy and super fun.  It should also be just a few hours of your time.  I'm pretty sure you would be about 9:00-12:00 in total.  I know that it is Lincoln and that might make it difficult.  We really want our athletes and those from Lincoln and Fremont to have the greatest experience and we can't do it without you!  Please, won't you look at your schedule and see if you can't help us out?


I need to know ASAP as I have to turn names in soon.  They have given me some grace and I can submit names later than the cutoff as they are so appreciative of our Omaha volunteers!  


Please make this State Games special for all of the athletes!  You are all the best!


You can sign up on Sign Up Genius or you can just email me: Nancy Samson.

Sign Up Genius is live!  Please sign up for the times that you can help.  We will need lots of help on court, especially with the DEUCE group so that we can play Unified Doubles with them.


Outdoor play at Koch will start June 7th and conclude on July 26th.  This is a Monday night.  


State Games will be held on August 7th in Lincoln and I am hoping that many of you will be available to help that day!  We will need lots of volunteers to make it happen.  Please save the date!


We are so thankful for all the time you give to help out our athletes and this program!  You are the backbone and make this a community success story!

At this time Special Olympics is planning on having a State Games with tennis as one of the events.  It would be the first Saturday in August so please try to keep that open if possible.  We will be looking for lots of Unified Partners for the event.


Thanks again for all the you do for Tennis Buddies!

April 20 News from Nancy

Hey Volunteers we sure could use a few more bodies for Saturday, April 24!  This is the group that really needs your help and instruction. We have 16 athletes signed up and 1 brand new one.  Thanks for looking at your schedules for Saturday!


On May 1st both Tammy and I will be gone.  PLEASE sign up as soon as possible so that I can have the plans to the parent volunteers by this Saturday.  Joe and the parents that do the check in will have everything, but I want to be sure that we have lots of help that day.  Thanks again for all that you do!


If you have any feedback for me regarding the format of the lessons we did this last Saturday please feel free to share.  We introduced team leaders and rotated volunteers from court to court at 15 minute intervals.  Let me know what you thought about it.

Please be sure that you complete any paperwork ahead of time so that you don't have to do it last minute.
