Check Calendar for practice and game schedule.

We had a GREAT SUMMER of TENNIS!! And that was following a winter off season where most every one of you tennis cats put in a lot of work on your tennis games. I feel like we are ready to be a competitive tennis team in Colorado this season.

* The official tennis schedule is attached on the schedule tab and below.

* Please Everyone... understand the importance of the challenge match schedule. The schedule is made up everyday after the days results are tallied. 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.

* Practices will be 3pm to 4:30pm for JV and 4:30pm to 6:30pm for Varsity. On days we don't have matches.

* Warning!! Jeffco is experiencing severe shortages in bus drivers. I think we will need to solve transportation needs within our tennis cat family. So everyone please keep that in mind. If we were to get a bus to an event we would have to leave AWest around the noon hour and arrive at our host school 2 to 3 hours prior to our match so that the bus can get back to school for end of day transportation needs. I can't even imagine that. Plus we would be missing so much more class time to just sit around doing nothing at a host location.

EMAIL, TEXT or CALL if you all have questions,

Coach Rick

June 1 thru July 23

(8 Weeks)

COMPETITION TEAM CAMP: For players who want to play tennis competitively at the Varsity High School level and beyond. This is a summer long camp that will have a feel and vibe similar to Varsity Tennis at Arvada West during the high school season. However, the camp format allows for more individual attention with every player. We will also be working hard to encourage and help players navigate entry into outside competitions.

Tuesday- Wednesday-Thursday / 10am to 12pm / Arvada West High School

Friday / 8am to 10am / Arvada West High School

Min 8 / Max 14 $350 or $70/WK

DEVELOPMENT TEAM CAMP: A bridge camp designed for players who need or want more time and preparation on the tennis court before stepping into the fire and intensity of Arvada West varsity tennis and the competition camp. A traditional format with a lot of group drills. However, at STAW we always include individual and semi-individual instruction for all players as well as putting some emphasis on match play during camp time. We will also be working hard to encourage and help players navigate entry into outside competitions.

Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday / 8am to 10am / Arvada West High School

Min 8 / Max 12 $250 or $50/WK

COACHES: RICK TANGUMA 303-875-3878 and SEBASTIAN PARDEE 720-333-4026


NOTES: Age and/or grade level is not a barrier for signing up for any camp. Tennis experience and ability as well as the players individual comfort level should make up the determining factors for choosing which camp is best. However, we still reserve the right to refuse entry into the camps if we determine that the player is not ready.
