Welcome to our 2021 Girls Tennis season! The St. Louis Park Tennis program has made tremendous strides over the past several years both in the numbers of players out for the sport and also in our successes. We, as coaches, are committed to creating a strong, hard working, team-centered program which we are eager to see grow in the years to come.
To the parents and families of our players, we thank you for your support and commitment to your student-athletes and to the tennis program. To our players, we thank you for your hard work and dedication to the sport and your own successes.
This is the sixth year we have had the numbers to support a B -Team. We have a JV/Varsity squad consisting of approximately 28 players.
In order for a student to receive a varsity letter, they must compete in a Varsity match.
Captains will be selected at the end season by the coaches. Players who are interested in being captain for the following season will be asked to fill out a brief questionnaire. Coaches will make the final decision based on leadership, commitment, integrity and attitude on and off the tennis court.
We expect our players to come see their coaches with any questions or concerns during the season. We also expect our players to give us a 24-hour notice via email or text message if they are unable to attend practice or play in a match. Players who miss practice/match without notifying their coaches will sit the next match.
We are very much looking forward to another great season! Thank you for your support.

Please make sure you have all of your forms completed and submitted to the athletic office before the start of practice on the 16th. Please check the calendar for all practice times and meets. Meets have been moved this year to Tuesday's, which is a big switch from years past.

Mon Aug 16 - Thurs Sept 2nd practice will be at the Rec Center as follows:

Tuesday Aug. 17th will be the first lifting session at the HS 8:00 - 8:45. This first session is intended for all swimmers to learn proper form and technique as well as the routine. We will be lifting on Thurs and sat during the season.
As of right now, after the 2nd we will be practicing at the High school.
In case of bad weather, check your email/text. I send an email to all families and text the captains to let the team know if we are moving to the HS pool due to bad weather. Come with your suit, goggles and any other training equipment you have, ready to swim.
We cover a lot of new material in the first weeks of practice, and practice attendance is mandatory.
Make sure you have all your forms submitted on GoPark.org by Saturday, Aug 14, if you are not on my roster you can not swim. Be proactive and get your forms turned in ahead of time, please!
ATTENTION ALL MIDDLE SCHOOL SWIMMERS:
You are not automatically on the team. There will be an evaluation process that is determined by the coaches. This process will start the first day of the season and last until Friday September 3rd, at which time you will be notified if you make the team.
---If you were already on the team last year, you do not need to go through the evaluation process.
