Teams and Competitions
The information below is for participants in our swimming and tennis programs
Divisions will be split by age group as well as ability. The age groups we hope to field are 18 & under B, 14 & under B & C, 12 & under B & C, 10 & under, and 8 & under. All matches will start May 29 - 30. If there are not enough players for a certain team, those players will be put on the next appropriate team.
The 8 & unders will play with the yellow nets (36 foot court) & red low-compression balls. The 10 & unders will play on a 60 foot court with orange low compression balls. The 12C matches will use the “green dot” lower compression ball.
The 12’s, 14’s, and 18’s matches will consist of 4 singles and 2 doubles matches. The 8’s and 10’s will play 2 singles and 2 doubles.
All divisions will have local championship play on July 16-18, sites TBD.
