College Tennis Program

College tennis program is designed for our young players in their final year of high school, who want to continue their education and tennis career at one of the universities in the United States, by receiving an athletic scholarship. Our academy is committed to providing the right resources and knowledge for the players interested in advancing in their sport journey to the collegiate level. This program has been very successful in helping them enroll into colleges in the United States while pursuing a tennis career. 

We collaborate with College Star Agency which specializes in college placement programs for athletes. With the proper level training and academic preparation for SAT and TOEFL exams, our young players have the opportunity to reach their maximum potential and achieve their goals. 

We make sure that all of our student-athletes have the right preparations and succeed in both higher education and sport!

More Information

It is desirable for the candidate to contact us at least 12 months ahead of planned departure to the United States, so that the search for the appropriate university and adequate athletic scholarship could be performed at the highest level. After an initial assessment of player’s tennis ability, the detailed plan for training and tournaments is made together with former college players and experienced coaches in order to achieve the desired level of play necessary for obtaining the athletic scholarship in the United States. 

Full package program includes tennis and conditioning preparation of players, professional preparation for the TOEFL (English) and SAT (English and math) tests, writing a short tennis biography, shooting and editing a video (presentation of a tennis player and his tennis skills) and contacting all potential universities in the United States, promoting a player in order to obtain athletic (tennis) scholarship.

Although the services can be taken individually, we strongly recommend the full package program because the experience of current and former college tennis players as well as the experience of current college coaches whom we are in contact with, tells us that in addition to tennis skills, the results of TOEFL and SAT tests are also very important for receiving a tennis scholarship, as well as the quality of the video promoting the player’s tennis abilities.

The price of this program depends on the scope of services that the tennis player wants to get from the academy until he/she signs the scholarship contract with one of the universities in the United States. The price of tennis practices and conditioning, as a part of the preparation for the college tennis is the same as it applies for the individual programs in the academy. Tennis players who are interested in this program should email us at: ivanm@tennisacademyelite.com, with all the questions they have and/or request a proposal tailored to their needs.

Because we take care of our players and make sure everything is on top level, we make evaluation of each and every one of them upon their arrival. We do this in order to help them see their tennis good and bad side, as well as keep track of the progress that is being made while they are at our academy. Every 3 months we do another revaluation and accordingly plan their practice and competition program.
