SATA Captains

Posted July 21, 2014 By The President

CAPTAIN, MY CAPTAIN

  • Do you have a SATA captain to thank who sets up the player rotation?

  • Do you have a SATA captain to thank who sends reminders of matches, times and locations?

  • Do you have a SATA captain who worries about you when you’re late to a match (just like Mom)?

  • Do you have a SATA captain who volunteers to find a sub for you?

  • Do you have a SATA captain who answers your Rules questions?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you are a lucky SATA player!!

The team captains give a lot of time and thought to making our leagues run smoothly.  We couldn’t do it without them!  How about giving her/him a hug (and/or a chocolate bar) the next time you see them!!

Congratulations to the Florin High School Boys Tennis Team!

The Florin High School Boys Tennis Team, coached by Steve Torres, won the Christian Brothers Preseason tournament.  This was the Panthers tennis team’s first tournament win in school history!  The Panthers started the league season 2-0 and are looking to build on their success.

FlorinIn addition to making great strides on the tennis court, Coach Torres indicated that, “out of a team of 32 players and managers I don’t have a single student who is ineligible to play.  The team GPA is an amazing 3.7 (A-) average.  I am very proud of them off and on the court.”

In case you are not aware, for three seasons, SATA has donated tennis equipment (racquets, bags, shoes, and tennis clothing) to the Florin High School Boys tennis team.  After the first year SATA was involved, the Elk Grove Unified School District re-surfaced the school’s badly cracked courts.  SATA distributed an e-blast announcing the court re-surfacing, and the e-blast caught the attention of USTA official, Dan D’Orazio, who now serves as Assistant Coach of the program.  Last season, SATA President, Carol Rose, and her daughter, Amanda, practiced with and offered instruction to the Panthers’ tennis team.  It is a great experience, and the boys are respectful and truly appreciate and value any insight offered to them.

If you are interested in donating some time to hit with the boys or if you have equipment you would like to donate, please contact sata.president@gmail.com.  Coaches Torres and D’Orazio are running a terrific program!
