Team Goals & Philosophy
The Bishop McNamara Tennis Program's primary goal is ensuring that each student athlete learns values that will allow them to achieve success not only in tennis but also in the world outside of tennis. It is extremely important that all student-athletes develop strong skills in the areas of hard work, commitment, communication, and sportsmanship. These goals can be met while having a competitive, fun-filled high school experience with memories to last a lifetime.
Tennis, unlike other sports, generates the discipline to achieve success. Our tennis goals are to work very hard, every day, all year round to improve as an individual and as a team. We have a full schedule that places emphasis on conditioning, on court hitting, and weight training.
The student athletes on the tennis team are students first, and outstanding tennis players second. Our athletes have to be equally committed to the books as they are to the game, which is why each year the tennis team boasts so many outstanding individuals who have achieved summa cum laude and magna cum laude academic status.
