Do you want to play tennis in college? Fill out this form and an NSR scout will conduct an evaluation of your abilities.
Get in line. The recruiting process for tennis athletes becomes more competitive every day, and the recruiting process starts earlier and earlier every day. There is much more to the process then showing up at a camp or playing in a showcase. The old saying "if you're good enough, they will find you", wasn't true then and isn't true now.
The chance to be recruited to play college sports comes only once in your lifetime. Only you can ensure that it's not wasted.

Over the years Tim has seen a huge need for families when it comes to recruiting guidance, assistance and exposure to college programs.

We will evaluate our tennis players individually and if I'm going to truly discuss a prospect with a college coach, I actually need to personally know the prospect and family. No other organization that I know of does it this way. I'm very excited about this venture and helping tennis prospects fulfill their dreams just like I did!"
