I would like to thank you for your interest in becoming a member of the 2017 Loudoun Valley High School golf team. I am looking forward to meeting each of you. I just wanted to give you all a little information about tryouts and the first week of the season and a little information about myself.
I am a 2011 graduate from Loudoun Valley High School where I was a member of the golf team all four years. It was truly a great experience and I hope to be able to provide everyone on the team the same experience as I had. After I graduated from Loudoun Valley, I went on to play competitively in college at Christopher Newport my Freshman and Sophomore year. I then went on to receive my Master’s in Kinesiology from the University of Virginia.
We will also have two assistant coaches who will be working with us this year; Dan Kaseman and Brad Sorgious.
Tryouts will be held at Loudoun Golf and Country Club on July 31st @ 2:00 PM and August 1st @ 2:00 PM. The format will be as follows:
July 31st: Players will meet on the putting green at Loudoun Golf and Country Club. Please arrive early to ensure that all the necessary paperwork (activity registration, physical forms, etc) have been filled out. We will be playing 18 holes on this day and will be recording the scores at the end of the round
August 1st: Players will again meet on the putting green at Loudoun Golf and Country Club. The first hour will be spent working on different skills at the putting green, driving range, and chipping green. At roughly 3:00, we will be playing 9 holes and record the scores. Cuts will be made on this day.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT ALL THE NECESSARY PAPERWORK IS COMPLETE IN ORDER TO TRYOUT (See necessary forms below). IT WOULD BE BENEFICIAL TO HAVE FORMS FILLED OUT BY FRIDAY JULY 28.
Physical performed after 5/1/2017
Training Rules/Student Handbook
Insurance Form… All athletes must have some sort of insurance in order to compete.
***** IF THESE ARE NOT DONE BY TRY-OUTS, YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE
Each player will have an equal chance to be 1 of 12 spots on the team. Some things we will be looking for are total score, course ettiquete/understanding of the rules, and composure on the golf course.
Our first tournament of the year takes place on August 2nd so things will pick up very quickly. The players for this tournament will also be selected following the conclusion of the 9 holes on August 1st.
It is important that we follow the dress code at Loudoun Golf and Country Club. This includes collared shirts (tucked in), and khaki shorts or pants (no basketball shorts or jeans). Metal spikes are not allowed at Loudoun Golf and Country Club.
If you have interest in attending tryouts, please send me an email (email at top of this letter).
Again, I am looking forward to meeting you all and am looking forward to a great year. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. My email is attached at the top of this letter.
