CoEd Varsity Golf
Loudoun Valley High School Golf
Coach Tanner Welsh
I would like to thank you for your interest in becoming a member of the 2019 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 University. I then went on to receive my Master’s in Kinesiology from the University of Virginia.
Tryouts will be held at Loudoun Golf and Country Club on August 5th and August 6th. We will start on the putting green. The format will be as follows:
August 5th: Players will meet on the putting green at Loudoun Golf and Country Club at 2:30 PM. Please arrive early to ensure that all the necessary paperwork (activity registration, physical forms, etc) have been filled out. We will be playing 9 holes on this day and will be recording the scores at the end of the round
August 6th: Players will again meet on the putting green at Loudoun Golf and Country Club at 4:00 PM. We will again be playing 9 holes and recording scores at the end of the round. Players will also fill out self-evaluation sheets while playing. Please arrive early if possible in order to receive instructions on these evaluation sheets. 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 JULY 29th
- Emergency Card
- Concussion Form
- Training Rules/Student Handbook
- Insurance Form… All athletes must have some sort of insurance in order to compete.
*** ALL FORMS MUST BE COMPLETED ONLINE AT valleyvikingsports.org
***** 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 your total score, course etiquette/understanding of the rules, and composure on the golf course.
Our first tournament of the year takes place on August 7th 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 6th.
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.
