Young hopefuls from across Long Island will be on hand at SPORTIME Syosset, the Long Island home of JMTA, located at 75 Haskett Drive in Syosset, N.Y. on Saturday, June 27, to try out for a full scholarship to attend JMTA at SPORTIME Syosset for the 2015-2016 season. The day begins with registration at 9:00 a.m., with a variety of tryout evaluation sessions concluding at approximately 1:00 p.m.
The tryout, open to players ages 6-16, will be led by an Assessment Committee made up of SPORTIME/JMTA directors and coaches. The Committee will evaluate players as they participate in tennis drills, athletic assessments, and play matches. The scholarship winner will be notified by July 6.
“Our tryouts have been very successful in recent years,” said JMTA Director Lawrence Kleger. “The scholarship students we have found at recruitment events at our JMTA locations have performed very well. We are excited to meet another crop of hopefuls and award a full scholarship this summer for next season.”
There is no fee to try out, but entrants must pre-register. Proper tennis attire is required. Players will have access to locker room and shower facilities. SPORTIME Syosset features a full-service, on-site pro shop, as well as stringing services. Water and Titan Tea, the official tea of JMTA, will be available on court and vending on-site.
