Frequently Asked Questions:

Who attends?

Players that have the dream of playing college tennis! The camp is for boys and girls entering grades 8-12. We have Five-Star through One-Star players in attendance, players ranked in the top 50 nationally and players who are good high school players. Players fly in from all over the country and world to attend this camp.

 

Why Exposure camps?

You will be exposed to the college training system. The college coaching staff will train you just like they train college players on their teams. The focus of the camp, like college tennis, is on how to play the game. So, every session and drill has a tactical framework and every shot will have a purpose.  We also conduct college tennis and recruiting presentations where you will learn a lot about the process. For example: How much better do you actually have to get? How do small improvements can make significant differences? Exactly what do college coaches look for in a prospect? What is the single most important factor in determining your future success both in life on the tennis court and in the classroom? How does mathematics makes you a better tennis player? 

 

Who will be on court with the campers?

The dedicated staff of current college coaches. You will be on court with all the coaches and you will see a lot of them and you will get to know one another. In addition, you will work with each of the coaches and sample various coaching styles.

 

Do other college coaches attend?

Yes. The camp is staffed exclusively by college coaches. The goal is to provide each player with as much college exposure as possible. Our staff of coaches have a wealth of experience and we have a good sense of where a player fits academically and athletically. Therefore, we hand select the best coaches from all divisions and levels of the game, so every player can be recruited. In addition, we invite coaches from across the country to visit the camp and we have various coaches stopping by to recruit and observe the players. Remember that every coach knows another 50 coaches really well, so you are actually getting to build a a network of 100’s of coaches! Most importantly our staff at collegiate exposure camps puts all the player profiles online for every college coach in the country to view. The amount of exposure you get is invaluable!

 

How is the coaching staff selected?

We invite the best college coaches to work our camp. The selection process is based on acquiring coaches from various locations, divisions and levels of the college tennis game. Therefore, ensuring that each player attending will find where they fit and have coaches actively interested in their abilities and able to recruit them for their teams. 

 

What if I have a tournament coming up?

The camp is excellent preparation for a local, sectional, national, ITF tournament as well as showcases. You’ll be well prepared having played competitively during the camp but also having trained in a live-ball, disciplined, and structured environment.

 

Are campers recruited to play college tennis?  

Yes, that is the ultimate goal for many of the campers.  There will be coaches attending from every level of college tennis who are also looking to recruit players.  However, the opportunity to begin exploring and thinking about the college process and college tennis is invaluable for older and younger players alike. The recruiting process starts as early as 9th grade. The camp will definitely offer a purpose and give meaning for the players as they move through their junior tennis career. The camp is a great tool for coaches to get to know your personality, see how you interact with peers, and how you train and compete. Review our sample list of tennis camp alumni and see what colleges they have committed to. 

 

How many players can participate?

Each camp is designed to hold a maximum of 5 players per court. We keep a limited number to give each player lots of time on court and with the coaches. Each year the camps sell out very quickly. Since it is based on NCAA rules of first come first serve basis, we recommend you register ASAP to secure your spot.

"Thank you very much for including Abbi in the camp this weekend.  It really seems to have lit a fire in her.  4 weeks ago we were not sure she was gonna play anymore and now she is sitting next to me telling me she is going to academy in the morning! Old Abbi may have taken the day off.  This one is not. Best,"

"I just wanted to thank you for putting together such a great event. It was an excellent opportunity. I enjoyed myself very much and had 3 very rigorous days of training. All the coaches were incredibly helpful and this was a very easy way to network. Once again thank you for everything.
Regards,"

"The camp helped me a lot with my college search. After going to the camp numerous coaches were interested me and I even received scholarship offers, but the most important thing I learned was how to communicate with coaches. Before the camp I wasn't really sure as to what coaches wanted to hear from you but after attending the camp and talking to many coaches 1-on-1, I learned what they look for, this gave me the ability and confidence to go and talk to any coach. I am now committed to play at Concordia College in New York, which is ranked #4 in Division 2. The exposure camp is easily the best way to network yourself and get yourself into college tennis."
