• Make sure you have your athletic physical done and LISD paperwork (SEE LINK BELOW) completed and turned in to Chris Shiver or Linda Bowman, Vandegrift Athletic Trainers. It must be done on the LISD form. You must have this done prior to the first day of practice. You CANNOT practice or play without it. You can find the form at www.leanderisd.org.

• It is suggested that you sign up for Camp V.I.P.E.R. (strength and conditioning camp) for the remainder of the summer. Go to www.leanderisd.org and click on the blue link called “Summer School and Camp registration.” The camp costs $150 and you may register and pay on-line. This will allow you to be in shape and ready to go the first day of practice. Call Coach Sanders for details (512) 570-2370 or drew.sanders@leanderisd.org.

 Golf Try-Outs 2018-2019

Anyone wishing to join the golf program will need to turn in a resume of tournament scores to

Coach Wernecke via email by Friday, August 3, 2018 (tournament, course, ydg, score).  Potential players who do not have tournament scores will need to come to Woodland Greens Golf Center on Wednesday, August 8th at 9:30am and hit balls so Coach Wernecke can evaluate their game.  Players will be responsible for purchasing their own range balls (bring $20).  Players who make the team via tournament resume, do not have to attend the range session on August 8th   

Tournament scores are the best way for someone make the team.  I strongly encourage anyone wanting to make the team to play tournaments and have scores to turn in.   Tournament scores from any of the following organizations will be acceptable: 

 

  • STPGA
  • US Kids
  • TJGT
  • Legends Tour
  • AJGA

 

Please include the date of the tournament, your score and the course the tournament was played on.  Coach Wernecke will look over the resume and compare the scores shot to the standards listed below.  Scores will be evaluated if there are multiple tournament scores.  It is preferred to have at least 5-6 tournament scores turned in to better evaluate the current skill level of each athlete.  The scoring average of the tournament scores needs to meet the standards below.  Just shooting the needed score 1 time won’t be enough.  The standards for making the team are as follows (the standards are for incoming players):
