Most teams will have a JV1, JV2, JV3, etc. Usually making JV or Frosh/Soph is a negative omen because you won't have much match play, but limiting teams to 6 players will add teams to these development levels further adding to the overall HS tennis experience.
AD's in North East decide the cut policy
They decide whether a given school buys balls for Junior Varsity
or whether a coach pays from his pocket for tennis balls.
