Tryouts:

Girls’ tennis at Olathe Northwest will begin on Monday, August 14th. Tryouts will take place at the CBAC (District sports complex) Tennis Courts from 3:30-5:30, Mon-Fri.  Our season will run from August to mid-October.

All athletes MUST have a current Physical & Concussion Form signed/ completed before practice begins August 14th to be eligible to play.  Please go to this link to print out forms: http://www.onwravens.net/athletics/forms/

Please bring your own racket and please wear appropriate playing apparel and athletic shoes. Tennis balls will be provided by the coaching staff.

All players will have the opportunity to earn a place on a team.  Placement will be determined by skill level as demonstrated during competitive drill work, and challenge matches to determine a Ladder (Tennis’s version of a depth chart). It is also very important to know that Attitude and Coachability will also be factored into the evaluation process.  Approximately 20 players (6 varsity & 14 JV) will be selected/ placed on the team. Players will be notified about their selection/placement by, or before the end of the day on Saturday, August 19.

Communication:
Information will be sent home with athletes about how to sign up to receive our REMIND TEXT messages at the end of the first week.

Practices:

Practices will be everyday after school from 3:15-5:30pm.  Our first week of practices might run a little bit long as we play challenge matches and establish the ladder.  JV and Varsity practice together, but depending on Team numbers, we might utilize other courts.  We will be sure to communicate that with players and parents as soon as we know how many girls will be playing this season.
