General News Youth Tennis News

USTA Player Development staff help train Jack Sock, Madison Keys, and many other up-and-coming American players on the professional circuit.

This June, they will apply their expertise to any American junior player looking for a leg-up on the competition.

The USTA All-American College Combine on June 14-16, 2017, will evaluate not only tennis skills but fitness, psychological assessments, and collection of other data to assist juniors in obtaining college scholarship offers or reaching their maximum potential.

Scouts from several college tennis programs throughout the country will be in attendance for tournament match play over the three days. The tournament will be a Tennis Recruiting “National Showcase,” with results counting toward each player’s Universal Tennis Rating. Tournament winners will also receive a main draw wild card into a USTA Pro Circuit $15,000 event.

The USTA National Campus in Orlando will host the inaugural combine, where any American girl or boy age 13-18 is eligible to participate. Led by USTA Player Development staff and Dr. Mark Kovacs, the scouting event is designed to give U.S. junior players exposure, knowledge and data to help in their college recruitment.

A custom report will be created for each participant, and players from the Team USA National Junior Team will participate in the event.

Entry for the event closes on June 1, and all players from the United States that enter will be accepted.
