Specialist Tennis Program

The Specialist Tennis program offered at Applecross Senior High School was the first approved tennis program of its kind in Western Australia. The program is offered at our school to students in Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 and Physical Education Studies (Tennis) in Years 11 and 12.
 
Selected students will complete four hours per week of both practical on-court and theoretical instruction in all aspects of the game.
 
The Specialist Tennis program offers tournament participation, school representation, interstate and international travel and competition, lectures and instruction from former touring professionals and accreditation in coaching.
 
The program has been formally endorsed by the Department of Education and Tennis West and caters for tournament players. Classes are strictly limited to twenty-four students, and entry into the program is extremely competitive.
 
Students wishing to be considered for the course must pass a skills appraisal and be involved in regular coaching, pennant and tournament participation.  Selection trials are for students in Year 5 and above. These are conducted in March, May and July each year or by appointment should vacancies still exist. If numbers are limited, priority will be given to Year 6 students. An online application form can be filled out here.
 
The second part of the selection process involves students having their most recent school report approved by the Applecross SHS Principal. For Year 7 entry this will need to include a copy of student's Year 5, Semester Two report. 
 
If you have any questions, please email lance.hinds@education.wa.edu.au

Testing dates for 2021 Applications are Thursday 4th March 2021, Thursday 27th May 2021 and Thursday 29th July 2021.
