During the high school tennis season playing for the New Trier team not USTA should be your priority. From our Lexicon: The USTA starts with YOU, New Trier Tennis starts with TEAM.
Boys Tennis tryouts will start on Monday February 26.
Unfortunately we do not anticipate courts being playable outside. We will most likely hold tryouts indoors at local area tennis clubs 2/26-3/10. We appreciate your flexibility and cooperation as the times will not be ideal (often late at night).
In tryouts we will be evaluating superbreaker singles results, doubles skills thru points/drills, and attitude/effort.
Players will start with their class (or last year's team) and be moved as performance merits.
The best players regardless of age will make the varsity team.
In order to tryout you need a
permit to participate
All Freshmen will meet Monday 2/26 in Northfield room C223 for a brief meeting - get there quickly and you can still catch your bus. Tryout details will be provided in that short meeting. We anticipate most/all of the Freshmen trying out that evening indoors.
All non-returning varsity sophs should meet Monday 2/26 in Winnetka room 144 with Coach Gridley from 330-430pm for further tryout instructions. We anticipate playing indoors Tuesday night.
All juniors, seniors, and returning varsity, should report to AC Nielsen tennis shack on Monday 2/26 from 4-5pm for further tryout instructions. Dress for potential outdoor conditioning. We anticipate most/all trying out that evening indoors.
