Week 3. Qualifying for teams
Qualifying will be three 9 hole rounds. The low 2, 9 hole scores for each player will be used to determine a rank order for Varsity, JV, and Developmental teams. New foursomes will be assigned each day. The top eight to twelve girls will make the Varsity Practice Squad, and the next eight to twelve girls will make JV Practice Squad. The remaining team members will make the Developmental team. Once the initial selections have been made, a player may be moved from one level to another in the best interests of the team at the discretion of the coaching staff.
We will all practice at Rich Valley during the first 2-3 weeks of the season.
We will be outside and at the course if the weather permits, otherwise we will be at Eastview--in C350 or Ms. G;s room- C 132.
Indoor Practices may include a variety of the following:
- “Rules of Golf” sessions

- Individual swing analysis
- Course strategy and gamesmanship sessions
- Team bonding activities
- Goal-setting discussions
All of these practices are essential to anyone trying out for this year's team. If the schedule directs you to the Auxiliary Gym; we will meet at the scheduled time in the hallway just outside the gym entrance. Dress appropriately; athletic attire with tennis shoes. Be prepared to bring a putter, #7 or #8 iron and pitching wedge.
Transportation: This outdoor practice time will focus on preparing golfers to compete in golf. Practices at Rich Valley will start at 3:30p.m. You are responsible for your own transportation to and from the golf course. Please carpool to minimize the disturbance to your parents’ schedules. You will be dismissed from the golf course between 5:30 & 6:00 depending on if we play 9 holes. Please make appropriate accommodations for transportation home after practice. Players are to use great care when driving their own vehicles, and will not drive carelessly or recklessly.
Weeks 4 through 10. Our competitive season is short but busy. Varsity players have one or two 18 hole out-of-school tournament every week. Stay ahead of your studies. Girls who have played more than 36 competitive holes in a week may use a scheduled practice to get caught up with schoolwork/life. If you are scheduled to play in a match and are absent from school, immediately notify your coach personally. We must know early in the day in order to find a replacement for you. If you are not in school, you are not eligible for matches or practice.
Travel: All players will be required to ride school vans to and from all away matches when school transportation is provided. Transportation is usually provided when crossing I494 or I35. In some cases we will meet at the course. Please look up directions and have a travel plan. You will be notified ahead of time to prepare for and arrange rides. It is your responsibility to get to practice and meets on time. Carpooling is recommended.
