Check Calendar for practice and game schedule.
Hello Tennis Cats,
The fall season will be upon us shortly. The summer tennis camp that
finishes up 7/27 has been going great and lots of progress is being made.
The official start of the boys tennis season begins on Monday Aug. 8 th . We
will have a short practice and do introductions 3-430 and then challenge
matches will begin on Tuesday 8/9 8-5. I will send out your time slot so you
can make plans.
You need to get registered for tennis thru the AW website and MUST have
an up to date physical or you cannot tryout. Don’t miss a challenge match
because you don’t have a physical. You can get a Sports Physical for $25
at NextCare urgent care located at 7380 W. 52 nd Ave (52 nd and Vance)
Mon-Fri 8-8, Sat and Sun. 9-4. 303-463-5941.
I believe registration is now open and will be open til Aug. 5 th tho I may ask
for it to be kept open longer.
If you are new to AW tennis and are out the week of the 8 th since school
doesn’t start til the 16 th , please send me your information so I can get you
into the rotation the week of the 15 th .
* Please Everyone... understand the importance of the challenge match
schedule. The schedule is made up everyday after the days results are
tallied. If you have a conflict you need to let me know to see if other
arrangements can be made, because if for some reason you are unable to
make your scheduled challenge match you will be given defaults for that
match which can result in large drops in ladder position. Our challenge
match system is very demanding but very fair in allowing you chances to
move up the ladder and ultimately make one of the top 11 positions
required to make Varsity. BE PREPARED. LOTS of WATER and SPORTS
DRINKS. MAKE SURE YOUR RACQUETS ARE READY. GOOD SHOES.
Once school begins and challenge matches are finished Practices will be
3pm to 4:30pm for JV and 4:30pm to 6:30pm for Varsity. On days we don't
Jeffco is still experiencing shortages in bus drivers so we will need to
handle transportation amongst ourselves meaning I will need parents to
help drive both Varsity and JV to away matches. Players can be
authorized drivers by parents so if you want to do this please fill out the
form when you register the player so I know who can drive. If you don’t
want your player to ride with another student or an adult, you will need to
make arrangements to transport them to matches.
There will be a Mandatory Parent/Player meeting on Wed. Aug. 17 th at 6
pm in the Library for parents and the players will be doing a phone
fundraiser in the commons. We will do introductions, discuss the schedule,
answer any questions and collect $25 from each player to cover drinks and
snacks for the season. We will be establishing team parents for Varsity
and JV and arranging transportation for away matches. Feel free to talk to
me if you have questions via EMAIL, TEXT or CALL. There will be a few
changes this year, but I’m trying to keep it as status quo as possible.
Thanks for all the offers for help and support as they are very much
appreciated and welcome.
