Welcome to Hawk Tennis

AHS Hawk Tennis 2021

Welcome to new and returning student-athletes and parents.

It will be nearly 2 years since a Hawk has played tennis for our school.  In that time most of the varsity players have graduated, 2 classes of freshmen have entered AHS, Coach Smith has moved to coach the girls team where his daughter will be a freshman (freshperson?) next year and we have a new head coach with the following qualification highlights:

  • U.S.P.T.A. Elite Professional
  • Trained and developed junior programs including top 10 nationally ranked
  • Head Coach Eastern Michigan University, assistant coach/ player Siena Heights University
  • Teaching professional at Ames Fitness Center/ First Strike Tennis Academy

Coach Feve is back (very good news!) COVID vaccines are becoming more available (more good news) and we fully expect to have a full season.  Great News!

Here are some plans and expectations we have for the ‘21 season

  • Practice opens Monday March 15th (practice times will be shared on REMIND)
    • This is Spring break week so anyone who has family plans will be excused
    • Weather is always tentative at best so we may try to go indoors in Ames
  • There will be a ladder but because of the gap in seasons and change in coaches we will make the playing positions a combination of ladder play and coaches decision.
  • Monday -Thursday will be regular practices: After the week of March 15-19, we will begin separate Varsity and JV practices.  Varsity: 4-5:15; JV 5:15-6:15
