Tennis Tryouts

Sarah Wilson and Jana Hofmann

Hey Terrors! Spring sports tryouts are coming up this month, including baseball, boys swim, track and field, girls and boys lacrosse, and girls and boys tennis. Coach Bernier, the girls Palmertennis coach, has been coaching girls’ and boys’ tennis for 20+ years, but has been coaching girls’ tennis at Palmer for 4 years. He is a certified pro with USNTA (United States National Tennis Academy), which is a tennis instructor education Academy.

If you are looking to play tennis with no experience, Bernier says that “there is not a lot of time to teach beginners with short practice times and coach availability.”  He still encourages new players to try out for tennis, and is excited for this season because of the skill level. According to Bernier, this year is the highest level of skill he has seen in four years!

Tryouts started February 28th, and are going throughout the week from 3:30-5:00 at the tennis courts. So, if you are looking to do tennis this year, be sure to stop by!
