Jr. High Tennis

As registration continues for the 2017-2018 school year, contact Coach Monroe (jmonroe@aisd.net) for more information about tennis. Registration is done through the jr. high counselors.

All parents are encouraged to attend the First Serve Social and Parent Meeting on Thursday July 27th.  Look for more info on this event in the summer / fall info document located on the "Forms" section of this website.

The class will meet at Lamar every other morning from 7:30 to 8:45am.  No experience is nessesary, but a completed AISD physical is required. Visit the Athletics page from AISD.net for the athletic release forms and the FORMS page of this website contains the actual physical form that must be filled out by a doctor.  Incoming 7th graders will not be able to access the forms in Rank One until Jr. High Registration.

Uniform tops and sweats are provided by the district, but each player must provide their own navy blue shorts or skirts for matches and tournaments. Players must also provide their own racquet, appropriate shoes, and water bottle each day.

Parents may either drop off the players at Lamar, or they may ride the high school bus.  At the end of each practice, the bus that takes 8th students enrolled in advanced academic classes back to Nichols or Shack will provide transportation.

Head Coach Courtney Monroe and Assistant Coach Jon Meyer give the team two coaches each morning.  Several Varsity players also assist in the class.

The team will play three dual matches during the fall semester against other AISD schools.  During the Spring semester, players are required to attend several Jr. High Tournaments hosted by local schools and played on Saturdays.

Look for more information about Jr. High Tennis at registration.  A Jr. High Parent Meeting is scheduled the seond week of school, usually followed by Vikingfest in the Lamar Cafeteria. Look for more information to come home the first day of class on August 22nd.  The first day to suit out and play for those with all paperwork completed is Thurs Aug 24th.
