If you are interested in trying out for the 2021 WJ Boys Tennis Team this Spring, please email Coach Duque at email@example.com with the following:
1. Your name
2. Year in school
3. USTA or UTR ranking, and/or JTT experience
4. Coaches and programs you’ve trained under
5. Goal for the season (ex. starting singles or doubles player, making the team for the 1st time, improving skill in specific areas, etc.)
Since there will not be a preseason interest meeting this year, here is some information about the 2021 spring season. Tryouts will begin April 17th and the season will run through June 19th. Online registration for spring sports will begin March 22nd (keep checking the WJ athletics website for updates on that). A lot of the details about tryouts, practices, matches and season in general are still being finalized and I anticipate changes to keep occurring up until tryouts begin April 17th.
Ultimately what we are looking for in prospective players is for them to have the following; consistent topspin groundstrokes, proper footwork and the ability to move forward and hit the ball on the rise, a consistent 2nd serve (preferably topspin), and the willingness to continue improving to reach your full potential whatever that may be. I hope that you all have been practicing as much as possible throughout this pandemic as we would like to hit the ground running as soon as we are back on the courts. I look forward to a successful return to WJ tennis and hope to see you all soon for tryouts! If you have any questions please feel free to let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
