Beyond the primary function, TS College Tennis offers two further options for the players that don’t have clear ideas on what they want to do in the future but still have the desire to undertake an American experience during high-school. Thanks to the great partnership with the Van Der Meer Academy and numerous other tennis academies, TS College Tennis is able to offer two interesting options to take into consideration while studying in high school:
- Attend the fourth year of high school at the Van Der Meer Tennis Academy in Hilton Head Island (SC), and then go back to their own country to finish the fifth year of high school
- Attend the fourth year of high school, which in America would be considered the last year, graduate from there and get recruited to play college tennis right away!
The process in order to enter a college or university in the United States is best to start at the end of the fourth year of high-school for international students. Once the fifth year of high-school begins, that is the time where colleges coaches are looking to recruit players for the following season.
Many college coaches go to visit the biggest American tennis academies, like Van Der Meer during the year to scout some new prospects!
