College Tennis Scholarship

Tennis scholarships are very different than most other sports. The vast majority of scholarships awarded each year go to international student athletes. It is especially important in the tennis recruiting process to be engaged and proactive. You must spend time researching programs and reaching out to as many coaches as possible. If you do not put the time and effort into the process, your results and opportunities at potential scholarships will suffer. As a high school tennis player, you must have a quality video that displays your best skill sets and who you are as a player Videos show college coaches what you are all about, without having to actually be there. Playing in competitive tournaments will increase the likelihood that college coaches are there watching.

Basic Academic Guidelines to be Eligible

High school student athletes need to earn a 3.0 GPA, 24 ACT, and at least 1000 out of 1600 on the SAT in order to become eligible to compete at the collegiate level.

3.0 GPA/ 24 ACT/ 1000 SAT

The Tennis Recruiting Process

The level of competitiveness in which the tournaments you play in are critical during your tennis recruiting process. The ranking that you earn throughout time will carry weight when college coaches are  recruiting for the upcoming year, and years to come. Playing at competitive tournaments and having a strong ranking are great for high school student athletes, but sometimes are not enough. You must have the necessary academic scores, be a good fit for the program and their goals, and be involved in the community and extracurricular activities. The Athletic Scholar can help make  sure you never miss a beat when it comes to the tennis recruiting process.
