Wetherby Castlegarth Tennis Club: Information For Team Captains
Team captains should demonstrate good communication and organisational skills and play at an appropriate standard for that squad. Being a captain is not a way of ensuring a squad place. Once appointed team captains have the following responsibilities.
1. Squad selection . Squad size for all teams will be of 8 players.
Captains will be given a list of members who have completed the team selection form stating a wish to play team tennis and their availability.
Captains of Harrogate, York and Leeds league teams should contact the respective players and offer at least TWO dates for selection trials.
Trials should be conducted in a timely fashion with respect to the commencement of league matches.
All team captains should set a meeting date for squad selection.
Once a player has been selected for any squad, should they decline the place they will go on the reserve list.
Captains should confirm their squads in a timely fashion. The captain of the higher team should contact the team captain of the lower team to allow swift progression of the process. This is especially relevant for mixed teams.
Once ALL squads have been confirmed then lists can be published on the club website and in the clubhouse.
Ensure squad members have paid their subscriptions .
2. League Matches
To be responsible for team selection from your squad. Once chosen, a member of the squad who is available for play must not be replaced by another member from outside the squad unless the squad member withdraws.
In the event of player shortages, first consult the reserve list for an appropriate player, then liase with other captains for free and untied players.
It should only be in exceptional circumstances that a team player plays more than one mixed match or mens/ladies match in a week.
Display team sheets on clubhouse notice board one week prior to match day. Captains may agree to communicate via e-mail .The aim is to ensure all are aware of which players are free to be approached to act as a reserve in a given week.
