Tennis

Tryouts start Monday, August 14th from 3:15 - 5pm

Calling all 6th, 7th and 8th grade males and females interested in trying out for the CRM tennis team!

Tryouts start on Monday, August 14th from 3:15 - 5pm and will run every day of this week.  Come dressed for the weather with a racquet and water bottle.  We will start by taking attendance and checking for a current physical. Then, we will begin match play, drills and skill assessments. Players should be familiar with general rules of the game, including how to keep score, court etiquette, and how to hit a ball back and forth consistently.  A first round of cuts will be made at the end of tryouts on Wednesday, August 16th. Final cuts will be made at the end of tryouts on Friday, August 18th.  The final team will consist of the top 13 - 15 males and top 13 - 15 females.    

 If the weather is bad, we will meet inside the cafeteria.  Be prepared to condition and complete team building activities until the weather clears and we can go back outside to play tennis.

Team Service

Often times you are alone for hours on the tennis court and need to dig deep in your heart and mind to pull yourself through the next point.  Hopefully, your service to others will give you the strength and confidence to persevere.  Each week we will focus on someone other than ourselves:

Week 1: Reach out to a player who was cut from the team.

Week 2: Make a locker sign for a teammate

Week 3: Nominate and submit a paragraph for a teammate who you feel deserves to be the AOTW.

Week 4: Invite a Teacher to our Teacher Appreciation match and submit a paragraph describing why you are grateful for that teacher. 

Week 5: Play tennis with Special Olympians. 

Week 6: Wish the CHS team well as they start the tournament.
