Dear Parents and future and returning Tennis Stars,
I hope that everyone is enjoying a terrific summer and you are getting ready to try out for the Girls Modified Tennis Team in the fall. The first day of try-out is Thursday September 9th on the tennis courts. In order to try out, you will need to have had a physical within the past year and be cleared through the health office. Certification will take place online. You will NOT be allowed to participate until you have been recertified. Please visit the school’s athletic page for more information on this process.
We will practice every day after school at 3-4:15 pm, Monday-Friday. We will be out on the courts unless weather forces us inside. Each school day, players are expected to report to the sports study hall in the JH cafeteria. Then at 2:55, players will report to the JH locker rooms in order to change. You will need to be dressed appropriately with sneakers. Schedule modifications and practice changes will be communicated via email and through the rSchool app. Please sign up for these notifications for matches, changes/cancellations.
Equipment Needed: For all practice/matches, players should have good sneakers/tennis shoes, a water bottle, and tennis racket. I also recommend shorts with pockets or a tennis skirt. Sunglass and/or visor and sunscreen is usually a good idea as well. A healthy snack for after school is needed for energy for practice.
Physical Preparation: It is important for your overall health and wellbeing to be physically active this summer to prepare for the fall season. If you can, get out and hit around this summer – Victor has lots of courts that are free and open to the public. Have a terrific summer, and see you in September.
Parents: please send me an email letting me know you received this information and so that I can add you to my email list for the fall. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.
