Amador Junior Team Tennis League
League Director: Dan Klement
- WHO: Boys & Girls Ages 7-14. Sorry, no high school players.
- WHAT: Co-ed teams play doubles and/or singles tennis in three ability levels. Beginners use large red low compression balls and a short court format, intermediates play full court with orange low compression balls, and advanced is regular singles & doubles play with rotation of teammates. No experience is necessary, beginners are welcome!
Each child needs his/her own youth tennis racquet. ATC will assist with making sure every child has a racquet;
let us know if you have questions about sizing or if you are unable to provide a racquet for your child.
- TEAM PHOTOS
We will be taking team photos on Saturday April 27. Some teams will have photos taken before their matches and others will be after matches. Please arrive 5 minutes earlier than your designated arrival time. Since we have coordinated volunteer photographers, there will be no opportunity for make-up photos. If your child cannot be there on picture day, he or she will not be in the team photo!! At our end-of-season awards party, each player will receive a printed 8x10" photo courtesy of Condrashoff Printing. We give a huge thank you to our volunteer photographers.
- MATCH SCHEDULE
Six matches on SATURDAY AFTERNOONS April 6 to May 11 according to the schedule below. NOTE: Intermediate and Advanced may play at a different time each week. Please check the schedule each week for your start time.
- PRACTICE SCHEDULE & ROSTERS
Rosters are finalized; your coach will be in touch with you about your exact practice start date -- likely the week of March 25.
Because we are sharing courts with the high school teams, we may also be impacted if the HS matches are rained out and rescheduled. We will work with your coaches to try and reschedule practices, but it may be necessary to cancel an occasional practice because the high school tennis teams do get priority on court usage. This will not affect teams practicing at Daly Court at Detert Park.
- RAIN POLICY
In general, we do not play or practice if it is raining or even if the court surface is wet (it becomes very slippery). Your coach will contact you if your practices are cancelled because of wet conditions.
The league coordinators will decide if matches are not playable due to weather. We will send out an early morning email on match days to let you know match status. In some cases, we can play some of the groups or divisions, but not all of them. We try to play as many matches as possible, but also want to be safe.
- MATCH REMINDERS
If you have to miss an occasional practice or match, please let your coach know in advance if possible.
You will get your t-shirts before our first match, and there are no other uniform requirements except smooth rubber-soled (preferably light color) athletic shoes. Low/no tread is better than high-tread "waffle type" running shoes, which can be sort of "sticky" and easier to turn an ankle. This shoe requirement goes for practices also....no flip flops, sandals, or cowboy boots! Intermediate and advanced players should have pockets or other way to hold one ball during play.
Please bring your racquet, sun protection, and water to all practices and matches. If you do not have an appropriately sized youth tennis racquet, or if you have any other questions, please let your coach or Dan Klement know.
