PRE-SEASON OPPORTUNITIES

In case you haven't heard, there is new Cardio Room at VVHS complete with rollers, stationary bikes, free weights, etc. -- everything you need for sports-specific conditioning. Thanks to Coach Francour, our girls' tennis team is going to be utilizing this facility twice a week this fall. With two days of conditioning and two practice days (hitting tennis balls at Sierra Vista) per week, we will get a jump-start on the season and hit the ground running come spring. Basically, hitting sessions will be Mondays and Wednesday, 3:30-5:00pm, at Sierra Vista; conditioning sessions will be Tuesdays and Thursdays, 4:00-5:00pm, at the VVHS Cardio Room (located inside the athletic complex building next to our tennis courts).

Required Paperwork: Please get your 2019-2020 physical completed ASAP. All players must have a current APS Sports Physical and Concussion Course Certificate on file with the VVHS Athletic Trainer BEFORE trying out or participating in any way. Coach Kappus will be contacted by the Athletic Trainer when your paperwork is in and you are eligible to participate.

Pre-season hitting: Players interested in preparing for the upcoming season are encouraged to participate in pre-season hitting days; these sessions are voluntary/informal practices that can help you sharpen your skills and get ready for Spring tryouts.  The preseason schedule is listed below. While optional, whatever work you put in during the fall is bound to pay dividends in the spring.
