    hi all. Through overuse and possibly tear, I was wondering if it would be an automatic DQ since I got surgery on my shoulder. I played competitive tennis and have been out of the sport since last December. I am finally back on court, but I cannot put enough strain on my shoulder to play singles, nor can I serve with an overhand form as it wrecks my shoulder. Slow recovery....possibility of a waiver?

    Thanks.

    DQ? yes. Possible waiver? yes
    Get copies of all records related to treatment.
    What year of High School are you?
    When was the surgery?

    Senior in high school, surgery was in December, cleared to do extremely mild exercise in mid June. Check ups regularly still.

    Surgery of any kind requires a 6 month waiting period.
    Start a file of surgeons and physical therapy reports.
    They will be needed for the waiver.
    Academies can request waivers for otherwise qualified candidates.
    ROTC scholarship winners will have the waiver process started automatically
