Junior HIGH TENNIS:
Spring Practices begin Monday, February 5th.
Regular practices for Boys & Girls are Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, 5:00 – 7:00 PM at Tracy Park, 11th and Peoria. There are no restroom facilities at Tracy Park.
Equipment Needed for Practices: Tennis Racket, Court Shoes, Shorts with front pockets, Sweats for colder weather, and plenty of water (jugs are recommended as an 8 oz bottle may not be enough). If players are currently not getting to hit on a consistent basis, they should at least work on cardio, endurance, and air strokes until practices begin. Exercises could include push ups, sit ups, jump rope, running, etc.
Practice may be cancelled if the temperature at the beginning of practice is below 40º, or if there is lightning or rain. If weather prevents the team from having practice, notification will be sent out via the GroupMe App about two hours before practice begins. Contact Coach Hillock or Tennis AD Sarah Franz to be added to the list.
