Want to play college tennis, but need financial aid? Looking for a shot to earn a scholarship? USTA Middle States will answer these questions and more at college day on November 6 in Philadelphia's Arthur Ashe Youth Tennis and Education Center at 2 p.m.

Some of the most influential tennis coaches on the east coast will be on hand to discuss collegiate tennis opportunities with hundreds of student-athletes and their parents. 

You are probably asking what happens at this event.

All the colleges and university representatives introduce themselves.

Attendees have the opportunity to listen to speakers, obtain information from colleges and universities and to interact with other student-athletes. We have a financial aid speaker explaining the aid process.

We have a Division I, II and III coach speaking about their respective divisions and what players can expect in a college or university and the clearinghouse process. There is a question and answer portion of the program where parents and players may ask questions.


The second session the Junior/Senior Showcase, is for high school juniors, seniors and their parents. In this session, prospects participate in the "The Showcase" where they will compete in a doubles short-set format to display their skills  in front of college coaches.
Only Seniors may talk to coaches during showcase.  
 
What the coaches are saying?
"Middle States ‘College Days’ are a great forum to bring together the parent/coach/player triangle and deliver lots of good information about the process of selecting a college," said Andy Findlay, USTA Tennis Service Representative.

"College Day is the ideal occasion for tennis players to meet lots of passionate coaches," noted Bloomsburg University Tennis Coach Marty Coyne.  "These coaches represent tennis and academic programs that will have a huge impact on the rest of these youngsters' lives," continued the coach who is in his 17th year at the university.
