2:30p.m. – 4:00p.m.
Location: SMCHS Tennis Courts
All players must come with the proper tennis footwear. You should also have two tennis racquets as a general rule of thumb. Tennis balls will be included. There is no need to bring your own.
Please be sure to keep up your physical activities such as weight lifting, cardio, and playing. Clinics and privates with your coaches are always recommended.
BEFORE YOU CAN STEP ON THE TENNIS COURT, you need to be athletically cleared. Here is the link to get yourself cleared. Please get this done as soon as possible. If you would like to check to make sure you are athletically cleared for the upcoming season, please email one of the trainers or go talk to them in person. They are located in the R Building close to the weight room. Even if you are cleared in a Fall or Winter sport, you still need to transfer your clearance over to Boys Tennis. This can be done through HomeCampus.com.
Click here for clearance: www.smhs.org/athletics/sports-medicine
Once you click this link, there will be a section on the right side of the page called Athletic Clearance. This is where you can find the information needed to get cleared.
If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to the coaches or contact the athletic trainers.
Thank you and we hope to see you out there!
