Special Announcement
USTA/Mid-Atlantic Section to Hold College Showcase at Old Dominion

Every year, hundreds of nationally ranked high school tennis players are recruited to play for the top college teams, with generous athletic scholarships and the potential of becoming professional tennis players.

But for the thousands of other high school tennis players, there are many opportunities to play in college that go unnoticed.

On Nov. 14, the United States Tennis Association Mid-Atlantic Section will host its 1st Annual College Showcase Day, giving students from across DC, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and North Carolina a chance to learn about the wide range of opportunities in college tennis. The showcase will be held at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia and include a Round Robin tournament for high school players.

USTA Junior and Collegiate Competition Manager Erica Perkins said, "Colleges of all levels of tennis are out there looking for tennis players to join their teams. Although some schools cannot offer athletic scholarships, they are often able to provide financial aid for these students, who enhance campus life and represent their schools at matches across the country."

Similar events in other sections have attracted over 50 institutions with coaches from NCAA Divisions I, II, and III plus coaches from NAIA and Juco programs. We hope our Mid-Atlantic event will rival those types of events and increase opportunities for all junior players to play at the college level. Sign up today!

The Mid-Atlantic College Showcase is your opportunity to see and be seen by college coaches. To participate, PLAYERS MUST REGISTER ONLINE.

For more information, contact Bonnie Vona by email or by phone at (703) 556-6120, Ext. 17.

Parents may also take advantage of this Showcase to have questions about the college tennis process answered by Mark Guilbeau, Head Coach of the University of Virginia's Women's Tennis Team.

COLLEGE COACHES ARE CHECKING ONLINE NOW TO SEE WHAT PLAYERS WILL BE ATTENDING. SIGN UP NOW!

The Value of Front Court Skills in College Tennis
I've had several recruits ask for training suggestions as they make the transition to college. A common theme between the three programs I've been part of the past few years has been the amount of work put into developing doubles skills, especially with freshmen. Recruiting players who can make immediate contributions to the doubles lineup has become harder to do, so my suggestion to young players in general is to develop the ability to play the net.

The ITA Summer Circuit provides college, junior, and alumni tennis players the opportunity to compete in organized events virtually year round. Although the primary focus of the circuit is to provide incoming freshmen and collegiate players the chance to play in the summer months, these events are "open", so anyone is eligible to compete.
