Season Recap: Middle School Tennis

Middle School athletics is a great time for students to try out new sports, or to improve on skills they already have. As the coach of the Middle School Tennis Team, Félix Medina had goals to nurture a sense of community among the team, foster respectful communication, and create a love for the sport.  

“We had students that have never held a racquet before, and these students won matches,” Coach Medina said. “That comes from love, passion, and dedication. I had a student that has never practiced any sport before in his life, and this student grew tremendously just by attending our training sessions, and becoming part of a team.”

With a team of players with varying experience levels, the season was spent working on growing skills and specific shots. Some players also had the added challenge of learning to play effectively with doubles partners. 

“The biggest challenge this season was developing my backhand,” Grade 7 player Ana Cuevas-Faget said. “My biggest accomplishment was winning my doubles matches with Veronica.”

The Diploma Programme is a rigorous pre-university course of study designed for students in their final two years of high school. It is a broad-based, two-year course that aims to prepare students for university by encouraging students to be knowledgeable and inquiring but also caring and compassionate. There is a strong emphasis on encouraging students to develop intercultural understanding, open-mindedness, and the attitudes necessary to respect and evaluate a range of points of view.

The Extended Essay is an opportunity for students to gain experience with the independent research and writing skills expected at university. Students investigate a topic they personally care about from class and create a 4,000-word piece of independent research over the course of a year.
