    Procedures
    On days of inclement weather, please check twitter @RHSGVT or check the board outside the athletic director’s office, after 1:00 pm, for practice or match information. 

    We may practice indoors when weather prohibits us from being on the courts.

    If you are sick, or miss a practice or match for any reason, please let Mr. Trocolar or Mr. Romeo know.

    School work is a priority.  If you need to stay after school for extra help, please let Mr. Trocolar or Mr. Romeo know.  You will be expected to come to practice at the conclusion of your session, with a note from your teacher.
    Please do not schedule doctor, dentist or other appointments during practice time, they will not be considered an excused absence, unless it is an emergency.

    If you miss practice the day before a match, you will not be allowed to play in that match.
    For every match missed, without a valid excuse, you will have to sit out the same amount of matches. 
    A player must participate in 50% of varsity matches to earn a varsity letter for the season.

    Proper tennis etiquette and good sportsmanship are extremely important and are expected during practice and matches.  Inappropriate language or gestures will not be tolerated. 
    Points will be deducted during matches for unacceptable behavior.
