The overwhelming truth about Tennis Scholarships in the USA for international players
If you’re like most parents with high level junior tennis players, you probably want them taking full advantage of the potential to study AND continue playing competitive tennis in the United States, on tennis scholarship.
And as parents who care for their kids future education, you’ve probably done a lot of research online looking for college scholarships and probably found this information to be nothing short of overwhelming.
What you’re going to see here is different!
This is a week long showcase where international players will participate to not only get CLEAR information on how to get the best scholarship (and maybe even win free application), but also the opportunity for your kid to play a national tournament against Barcelona’s top players and train with them for the week.
There will be no fake promises or confusing information.
This Showcase is not to get you to pay for a scholarship application, but to educate you on how to get one.
You can get an application with us, with someone else, or even do it yourself.
This is specifically for players looking to go on a tennis scholarship in the United States & gain tournament exposure abroad.
If you only want to do the camp and tournament you can also do this.
Contact us for more infomation.
If your child isn’t serious about their tennis this won’t be a good option for them, as it includes intense training & tournament entry.
This tennis week will lay out the real opportunities your kid has to get a scholarship and a STEP BY STEP daily consult on how to start and finish the process well.
This is why this week in Barcelona is important
You will train with top Spanish players from Monday to Friday.
You will participate in a national tournament for rankings.
You will be exposed for possible recruiting at many Universities in the United States.
You will have Q&A and 1-1 time with one of the most prestigious coaches in the USA.
Finding the right scholarshipis a difficult task that involves a ton of effort
I know you have limited time and that's why you've probably considered a recruiting agency.
Keep in mind recruiting agencies are typically after your money and not your player’s success.
The other problem you’re probably facing right now is that you need to get the highest scholarship aid possible, while also thinking of what school will benefit your kid the most.
The reason why is because you also care about your kids education and their overall experience during one of the most important years of their lives.
Here's how it works
July 23 - 29, 2017

But here's the best part
If you’ve done your research correctly you probably know there’s no better person to advise on a college scholarship process than a USA college tennis coach who's been recruiting interational players for years!

When to start the process including Visas

Who's actually recruitable
What's required before acceptance and after in regards to academics & athletics to keep scholarships
How to approach coaches and what questions to ask
School expectations in terms of time management, training, travel and academics
How to research schools, coaches and destinations
On top of this Tony Minnis will provide 1:1 time with parents to ensure no stone is left unturned.
