2017 MS Tennis Information

Coach: Jordan Willcutt

The Middle School team will have a JV & Varsity Team. Players play challenge matches to determine their position on the Varsity team, so every player has a chance to earn their position. The Varsity team will practice 2 days per week and will play team matches 2 days per week. The JV team will practice 1 day per week on Fridays and will have fewer matches during the season. Team practices and home games are held at the SM Town Hall Tennis courts and away matches are held at various locations around Chattanooga. Practices will be held 3:00-5:00 PM and matches typically last from ~ 3:30-7:00 PM. All transportation is parent provided, so make sure you can arrange transportation for your player to be at practices and matches on time. Trying out for a Varsity position is optional, so you can choose for your player to play on the JV team with less time commitment if you prefer. However, you are still required to purchase the uniform regardless of whether your player is a Varsity or JV player. Please indicate on the MS Signup sheet if you prefer to be a JV player or if you plan to challenge for a Varsity position.

Parents and players are expected to help clean-up around court areas, empty trash bins, blow off the courts, & tie the windscreens, so please be willing to pitch in to help keep the Town courts neat and tidy. If you see something that needs to be maintained or cleaned, please jump in and do it! We are fortunate to have access to the town courts, so we all need to do our part to keep this area nice for the team and the community so we can continue to enjoy this privilege.
