The first round of Girls Tennis Tryouts will be for 4 days, Monday, May 23 thru Thursday, May 26.  All new girls need to complete a physical BEFORE being allowed to attend tryouts.  If you cannot schedule a physical with your health care provider in time, an alternative option is to get it done at EXER Urgent Care(multiple locations as well as quicker access) as many Cleveland students have done before.  Be sure to bring in the 2-page form for your physical when you go in for your exam. It must be Signed and "Stamped" by the health care provider. Forms may be downloaded from the Cleveland website under Athletics, then Forms, then Physical.  Email to Coach Lowe a copy of your physical as soon as you have it completed BEFORE the actual tryouts begins to ensure its completion.
 
Tryouts will take place each day 4-5:30pm at Pierce College Tennis Courts West of Winnetka Blvd south of Victory Blvd off of Brahma Dr.  Park directly across from tennis courts.  No parking permits are required. 
 
Bring your own tennis racket, sunblock, a refillable water bottle as well as 2 new cans of tennis balls.  Be dressed in the appropriate wear to run around and play tennis.  There are bathrooms where you may change if needed.
 
Keep in mind the tennis team is designed for girls wanting to compete against girls from other schools, meaning you should already know how to rally(meaning hitting the ball back and forth across the net), serve and how to keep score.   Being a tournament-level player is not required, but hard work and a persistent focused effort is! We have a fun time as a team with a great core of returning girls so this is a team that you should want to join!  
 
Any questions, contact Coach Lowe
