2019 Hudsonville Boys Tennis Important Information and Dates

*  Physicals –  Physicals are mandatory for all athletes before they are allowed to begin practicing, prior to tryouts. They must be dated after June 1st, 2019.

*  Pay to Play – It is $100 to participate on the tennis team.  Payment is made in the athletic office located at the high school.

  • Varsity Tryouts – The first day of tryouts for Varsity are Monday, August 12th 9:00am – 11:00am at our HIGH SCHOOL COURTS (Rain or Shine). All practices, before school starts, will be in the morning.  Once school starts, practices are after school.  All students must show up with an Entrance Ticket from the Athletic Office.
  • JV Tryouts – Monday, August 12th at 12:30pm – 2:30pm at our HIGH SCHOOL COURTS (Rain or Shine). Also, Tuesday August 13th – Thursday August 15th at 12:30 – 2:30pm. After this, I will have a calendar. All students must show up with an Entrance Ticket from the Athletic Office.
  • NEW JV INFORMATION – We are excited that our program’s numbers are on the rise, but we will not be able to accommodate such big numbers for much longer. There is not enough room to run a decent practice for a JV team of 40+ kids.  Also, most of the teams we play only have 10-20 players so it becomes very hard to get all of the kids matches (which is the fun part).  For example, if another team only has 10 JV players and we have 40+, then it would require the other team to play 4 times to our boys’s 1 time or I would only be able to bring 20 players to the match.
  • So, IF the total JV numbers are above 32 players we will be implementing the following policy: (Please note this is a suggest guideline for the coach and is subject to change based on numbers and grades of students.)

* NEW JV SUGGESTED GUIDELINES:

#1 – All seniors that do not make VARSITY will not be able to play JV tennis.

#2 – All Juniors that do not make at least 4th doubles or higher on the JV will not be able to play JV tennis.

#3 – All Sophomores that do not make at least 9th doubles or higher on the JV will not be able to play JV tennis.

#4 – All Freshman that do not make at least 16th doubles or higher on the JV will not be able to play JV tennis.

*          Good Luck and see you soon.
