Tryouts for the 2016 Clay Middle School Boys and Girls teams are open to any incoming 6th, 7th, or 8th grade students at Clay. We will be taking 12 boys and 12 girls for our teams this year. If you enjoy playing tennis competitively, having fun on the court and want to be a part of a great team, come try out!
Tryouts will be BEFORE the first day of school. Day 1 of tryouts: Monday August 8th 3:30-5:30. Day 2 of tryouts: Tuesday August 9th After School until 5:30. Tuesday evening will be first round of eliminations. Day 3 & 4 Wednesday and Thursday August 10 and 11 After School until 5:30. Final eliminations after Thursday. The boys will change in the PE locker rooms; girls will change in the girls' athletic locker room. Once the team has been selected, practices will be daily after school until 5.
Please come prepared to play (racquets, non-marking shoes, attire, positive attitude, water, etc.) Coaches will observe all players through round-robin matches during try-outs. Tryouts and practice are closed to parents. We do not want to add any extra pressure on the athletes trying out!
