High School Tennis: Are you ALL in?
(joining Doug on the presentation panel from l. to r., Kim Dillard, Westfields HS tennis coach; Maria Reyes-Chian, captain, Chantilly HS girls tennis team; Doug; Bob Pass, owner and director of 4 Star Tennis Academy; Chip King, chairman of USTA Mid-Atlantic junior competition committee)
Doug presented at the 2014 USPTA Mid-Atlantic Convention in Fredericksburg, Virginia. As a high school tennis coach for the past ten years at Chantilly High School, Doug is passionate about what a great experience it is for tennis players to play on their high school tennis team, regardless of their skill level. For most players, tennis is an individual sport. Many high-level tournament players are skipping high school tennis. They feel that they can't get the level of competition in practices and matches they need in order to compete at their level. Doug's main response to anyone who questions whether to play high school tennis is this: "The value of the high school tennis team experience trumps everything". The team dinners, secret pals, senior days, the daily support and encouragement of your teammates, lifetime memories, lifetime friendships from that small window of opportunity makes for a great short-term alternative for high level tournament players to the high pressure grind of tournament tennis at the national level. Doug encourages tournament players to manage their time well and schedule their high performance workouts before or after high school practices if they don't feel like they are getting those workouts with their team. But don't ask for special privledges, like skipping team events, in order to workout elsewhere. All players should respect the privledge it is to represent their high school on their tennis team for just four short years.
