Tryouts will work like they have in previous years at Patriot. Every player will play every other player in a game to 10 points. The first player to 10 points wins. At the end of the tryout the total number of points will be added up, and will determine who makes the team.
Depending on how many students try out, I may do an “evaluation day,” and then split the group into an A and B group before the round robin try out process begins.
I will keep between 8 and 12 players on each team. Making the team in previous years does not guarantee you a spot.
***Upperclassman must be in the top 8 to be guaranteed to make the team. Upperclassman not in the top 8 will be a coach’s decision on if they make the team***
BRING WATER AND A TENNIS RACQUET. PATRIOT DOES NOT PROVIDE YOU WITH A RACQUET…Dress appropriately, it will probably be cold and windy.
There will be a mandatory tennis meeting on Tuesday, January 28th at 2:20 in Coach Grimsland's trailer 1803 for anyone interested in trying out for the tennis team this spring. You must let me know if you cannot attend.
There will be no out of season practices until further notice. The county is doing work on our courts.
We will have an important tennis meeting in January to discuss tryouts and other business. Look out for more info on this after the break!
Let me know if you have questions.
The last practice before Thanksgiving will be on 11/6.
Our next out of season practice will be after school Wednesday 9/4 from 2:30-4! After that we will do every Monday and Wednesday for the rest of the fall unless you hear otherwise from me! Remember you need a new VHSL physical filled out! Form is on the patriotpioneers.org website.
