My son is on a high school varsity team and loves being part of the team. He is a very good and conscientious student. He would like to do both tennis and fulfill his academic potential. However, the tennis schedule is more demanding than in the past. His classes are harder. An example of the any week in the first couple of months of school: Mon: Tennis 2:40 to 6:40 (part of this is class time, part after school, there is a short break in there) Tue: Match 4:10 to 7:00 (can go to 9 for travel and just generally running long, not allowed to do homework during matches) Wed: Same practice as Mon Thu: Match like Tue Fri: Same practice as Mon Add to this missing whole days of school for some tournaments, and some small weekend requirements. Sometimes it is 2 practices a week and 3 matches, or other combinations, but the idea is that much of the school week is taken up by tennis. Even during times when there are no tournaments, there is still the long practices Monday to Thursday. Life is not fun when the homework is poured on and tennis takes up so much of your time that you can’t keep your head above water and sometimes can’t finish the work despite late nights and early mornings trying. Any similar experience and how you worked through it? Figured people doing college tennis (or looking to do) might have similar HS experiences.
