2020 Varsity Tennis Fall Schedule

 

As of July 10 2020

 

With area COVID increases, our district is only focusing on varsity sports scheduling at this time. JV/ Freshman tennis is in the Spring.

 

   If you are interested in trying out for varsity period Mon August 3, please let me know as more details are to come. You may text me at (210) 632-8176. Most freshman who make the varsity class play USTA challenger or champ level events for reference.

 Tryouts for JV / Freshman 8th period will take place during the first week of school

 

     We have been approved to start a week of evening workouts for varsity level tennis players Mon- Thurs July 27 -30 6:30-8:30 pm. 24 kids maximum. 

     We still need to make sure that everyone is following district protocols with:

     Digital prescreen that must be completed before each practice and submitted

 

Each student must have:

 

1 gallon of water

Small sanitizer

Social distancing 

Mask on at all time except when playing

Entry and exit  by baseball field gate.

 

 

Thank you and stay well.

As of June 28 2020:

 

     Due to the increase of COVID 19 cases in San Antonio,  the district has closed for, at least, 2 weeks. Tennis practices will not begin on 7/6/2020 as planned. We are on hold indefinitely and I will update this webpage when I learn of a start date. Very sorry.

 June 3 2020

   Voluntary tennis practices for incoming freshmen and returning JV and Varsity players will begin on Monday July 6 in the mornings. These will take place Monday - Thursday for the remainder of July before varsity tryouts on August 3. Times will be established  and announced closer to the start date as I anticipate more changes concerning number of kids allowed on the courts at one time and screening requirements. The UIL only permits 60 minutes of sport specific practice each day until August. I will have multiple sessions of practice in July to adhere to NEISD participation requirements.  As of now, only 12 kids are allowed on 6 courts. Courts are still closed to the public. Hopefully this will change as well. As of now, our Monday evening practice times are on hold.

 

Please email me at kbice@neisd.net if you have any questions.

 

Thank you,

Coach Bice
