The success of every woman should be the inspiration to another. We should raise each other up. Make sure you’re very courageous: be strong, be extremely kind, and above all be humble.
1. Measurable skills improvement for each individual.
2. Evidence of one unified team, not individuals, not cliques.
3. 90%+ of eligible players return each year.
We are proud to be one of Ridgefield's few no-cut sports. In fact, all girls tennis in the league is no-cut, and most girls tennis nationwide is no-cut, making it the fifth largest high school sport overall by number of athletes participating.
No-cut school tennis teams allow students of all abilities to join a team representing their school and be physically active. This opportunity helps create well-rounded student-athletes, develops leadership and teaches responsibility.
High school athletics offers important developmental experiences that the classroom cannot offer. Tennis in particular puts young adults into many situations they may not have encountered in other walks of life.
It is a sport that many people choose to play for a lifetime because there is always something new to learn from each situation and each opponent. We are a competitive team working toward winning , but never at the expense of our core principles which are Sportsmanship, Teamwork, Excellence and Perseverance.
