About Fall Developmental Tennis:

  • Developmental Tennis is training only -- no competitions. (Academic eligibility does not apply to Developmental Tennis.)
  • Up to 15 60-minute practices. 
  • Per the Governor's executive order, as of 6/5, masks cannot be required, but masks are strongly recommended.
  • Participants:
    • 7th-12th grade students.
    • All genders.
    • Minimum participants = 6 MS and 6 HS
    • Maximum participants  = 40 MS and 16 HS
      • Once 40 MS students and/or 16 HS students have registered, this sport will be closed and a waiting list will be available should a registered student decide not to participate.
  • No tryouts. Beginners are welcome.
  • Students will need to provide their own tennis racquet and wear athletic clothes and shoes to practices.
  • Developmental Tennis does not qualify for lettering.

Practice Schedule:

 

Make-Up Practice: The make-up practice for all groups due to the cancellation on 9/22 will be Saturday, 10/23 from 10:00-11:00 AM.

 

Middle School Group 1 

Mondays - 5:00-6:00 PM

Wednesdays - 2:30-3:30 PM*

 

Middle School Group 2 

Wednesdays - 3:30-4:30 PM

Fridays - 5:00-6:00 PM

 

High School

Mondays - 7:30-8:30 PM

Wednesdays - 2:30-3:30 PM*

 

*Middle School Group 1 and High School will train on adjacent courts on Wednesdays.

 

When weather or court conditions are not conducive to practicing outdoors, practices will be moved indoors to the Cimarron Hills fitness center rather than cancelling practices and causing a delay in the season by adding make-up practices.

 

Regarding Changes to the Practice Schedule From Previous Seasons:

Previously, Middle School practiced after High School on Wednesdays and each group practiced at 5 PM on different weekdays otherwise. This year, High School must practice the same days as Middle School due to the facility's availability. The time we are starting practice (5:00 PM on Mondays and 2:30 PM on Wednesdays) has not changed. Because the second practice slot on Monday starts at 7:30 PM (due to court availability), the younger group, which is Middle School, will practice during the earlier slot (5:00 PM) and High School will practice during the later slot. The courts are well lit. Both groups will practice at the same time on adjacent courts on Wednesday as there are more courts available on that day and time.

 

Practice Location:

Cimarron Hills Tennis Center,

200 E Cimarron Hills Trail, Georgetown, TX 78628

Lead Tennis Coach:

Cal Loveridge
