[tennisbiz] Re: Challenge Matches

 Ah yes the joys of coaching high school tennis. You are fortunate to have
players that are eager to go out and practice and want to do what it takes
to be part of the team.
 Your idea about challenge matches is a great one. I like to format of them
doing a round robin mini tournament, that way each player gets a chance to
play the other and based on that you can have a better idea of how to place
them in the line-up. By having a round robin you can see who will be the
most consistent (at least at the beginning of the season); and you will also
be able to base your seeding on who gained the most points during the
matches. From those two bits of information you can then progress to regular
challenge matches during the season if need be.
With regards to the evaluation sheets that you mentioned I think they are a
great idea. I have used them in the past for coaching high school and my
ranked players. I will use them during the season after practice and/or
matches. By doing these forms you are asking students to monitor their
progress and think about their play. The important thing with these forms is
that you do something with them, for example track the progress of the
players. The players won't mind doing them as long as you are also making it
worth your time and theirs to do them.

If you email me directly I will send you an evaluation form that I have used
for this process.
