As our association grows, we are working hard to provide appropriate programming to all demographics. If order to achieve this, we are holding as many ratings clinics as we can to get accurate ratings for all players in programming. For some programming we are currently allowing USAPA tournament ratings, but soon most of our programs will require a NSPA rating only.
Ratings clinics are reserved for members only and due to the high volume of interest, only members will be allowed to sign up for a ratings clinic. Memberships will not administered at the clinics. If you are not a member, please sign up online prior to registering for any of the clinics.
Registration will open on November 16, 2020 for players intending on joining the Highview Winter League. Registration will open November 19, 2020 for the rest of the membership.

Participants will spend 60-90 minutes through skill and game evaluations. Player evaluations will be based on their abilities in serving, service return, third shot drop, short game, volleys, ground-strokes, overheads, lobs; and game play. Game play evaluations will be scored on shot selection, positioning, footwork, ability to defend shots, and the ability to create opportunities to win points.
Each clinic will be staffed by skilled clinicians who have extensive experience in local, regional, and national tournaments. All participants will receive a NSPA rating at the end of the clinic. This rating can help players determine their level of competition and will help place them in the proper programming (leagues, clinics, tournaments, etc) through the NSPA.
Club pro Brent Waiwaiole and his team have developed a detailed evaluation form and thorough process for evaluating participants. All ages and skill levels are welcome to participate and receive a club rating.

Clinicians will be wearing gloves and sanitizing balls per participants. Please maintain social distancing during wait times and hand sanitizer will be available. Since we are outdoors, masks are not required, but encouraged for people when they are not playing.
