Do you want to give back to tennis? The time is now!  There is a High School Tennis Coach position opening up at Apex High School in Apex, NC.  Apex is in the SWAC Conference, and there are currently 9 schools within this conference. Starting in 2017, the conference will be restructured to 6 schools, with a 7th school to be added later.  (The conference for the 2017-18 school year will be:  Apex, Apex Friendship, Fuquay-Varina, Holly Springs, Middle Creek, Gardner, with South Gardner to be added to the conference at a later date). Both the Men and Women’s Tennis Coaching positions will be available in 2017.

Apex High School will undergo renovations from 2017-2019.  During this renovation period, Apex students will move to Green Level (the school has 6 tennis courts on site).  In 2019, when the renovations are complete, the NEW Apex High School will have 6 tennis courts located behind the baseball field.  This construction is ideal because the new tennis will have 6 tennis courts on site.  (In the past 8+ years Apex has had to play all their tennis off campus).
