Tennis - JV Boys
2020 - 2021
Head Coach: Russell Coward
The Derryfield boys' JV tennis program is designed to provide student-athletes with opportunities to develop their skills and enjoy the sport. For some, that means improving enough to step up to Coach Leary’s varsity in a future season, and for others, it means developing the skills, knowledge, and enjoyment of tennis to ensure many years of exercise and fun.
Russell Coward moved to New Hampshire following 20 years as an English teacher and basketball and tennis coach in Connecticut and 10 years as a college professor preparing future high school teachers. He has been coaching JV tennis and JV baskeball at Derryfield since the spring of 2013. His dual goals in both sports are to prepare players for varsity level play and also to enjoy their sports throughout their lives after graduation from Derryfield. He is also leading a group of Derryfield students on their trip to Vietnam this coming March.
Located in Manchester, NH, The Derryfield School is a private day school for grades 6-12. Students benefit from a challenging academic program, fine and performing arts, competitive athletics, and a wide selection of extracurricular activities.
