EMTC Winter 2024 Junior Comp Nominations (WDTA)
Don't be late as we can't guarantee a place in a team if you miss the cut off date.
EMTC Junior Members & Prospecitve Members
Please see below for Terms & Conditions and nomination for Winter WDTA Junior Competition.
You are invited to join a competition team for the upcoming WDTA winter season. Competition begins Saturday 4 /Sunday 5 May with rounds/finals concluding 7 / 8 September (Reserve Grand final date 14 / 15 September). There are no matches during school holidays and long weekends.
Players who are selected in a team are expected to play for the entire season.
Saturday home matches start at 8.15am and finish at 12.15pm (latest), Sunday matches start at 8.30am and finish by 12.30pm (latest). For away matches players meet at the EMTC courts around 7.30am for Saturdays and 7.45am for Sundays for the rostered parent to drive to the away venue.
If you wish to apply, please complete this registration and pay the $50 registration fees plus compulsory club shirt - $30 (t-shirt or polo) - if you don’t already have one.
All players must be financial members of EMTC. New players will be provided with membership information once teams have been submitted. All players must have a competitive player profile.
Requirements of Participating Juniors and their Parent:
Please consider very carefully your availability before nomination. You have a responsibility to yourself, your team and the club to play when rostered. Selection into future season teams will consider player and parent adherence to this commitment in this season.
Each parent needs to provide team transport on up to two occasions per season. The rostered parent driver/supervisor arranges for the teams’ safe and timely arrival at the away venue, stays for the morning and is expected to drop all players home after the conclusion of the away matches.
Parents need to be available to act as Venue Supervisor on 1-2 occasions per season, arriving at least ½ hour before matches are due to commence, and staying until all matches are completed.
Parents need to be prepared to act as Team Manager in the event that their child is chosen to captain the team for the season (roster preparation etc as per duties list).
Teams will be selected according to the best guides we have as to their order of merit. While we try, it is not always possible to arrange for friends to play on the same team. Wes & Jake from Futures Tennis Academy, coaches at East Malvern Tennis Club, will assist with selection of teams. Similarly, we are not always able to place all players into a team. In this case application fees will be refunded.
Refunds will be given:
1. To any player not allocated to a team.
2. If you have a medical condition which prevents you from playing after teams have been submitted to WDTA (i.e. broken arm etc).
3. Club Shirts will be refunded if the shirt has not been worn and the tag is still attached, or we are unable to supply your size.
Refunds will not be given for 'change of mind' after teams are submitted to WDTA.
Nominations close midnight Tuesday 27 February
