What Women's Tennis Families Have to Say About NCSA
Plenty of student-athletes have found success in tennis at the college level thanks to some guidance from NCSA. But don’t just take our word for it. Read what these tennis success stories have to say about working with the recruiting experts at NCSA. The recruiting process is difficult but we’re here to make it a little bit easier.
"My recruiting experience has been amazing. I could not have done all the stuff you guys did for me, on my own. As an international student with no relatives who went to college before in United States, everything about the recruiting process was completely new to me. I did not know what to do, so I found NCSA online and then contacted them to get some help – and that was what I got. The day after NCSA had sent my NCSA profile out to coaches my inbox was full of emails from interested coaches. Since then they just kept coming, because of my NCSA profile and how it is built – with the facts that a coach wants to see and hear - that’s what the coaches I talked with told me. The most exciting part of the process: When the coach from Washington State came all the way to Denmark, my country, only to watch me play, and then after two days telling me that I would get the scholarship. Before she came to see me (only 3 days ago) I had just traveled around the US visiting colleges in Washington, California and Denver who also were very interested in me. And because of my visits I got to experience the “real” site of the university and as a consequence had no doubt about choosing Washington State University because of their good professional sports environment and tennis team. It was official visits so it was not that expensive either. The obstacles I had to overcome was finding out how everything works in the college recruiting system, and taking and preparing for the SAT on top of my normal school. Advice for aspiring college athletes: Sign up with the NCSA, complete your profile as soon as you can, make both a practice tennis video and a match video – the coaches’ especially liked my match video. Play lots of tournaments. Be proactive! And last but not least – be yourself throughout the whole process, because then if the coaches likes you, you know that they like you for who you are, and that’s very important since you have to spend a lot of your time with that same person."

"You have a very great supporting staff that are always available and give great advise. Not only that but using NCSA I can contact coaches directly so they know who I am and they can view my profile. This puts me at a great advantage because they can consider me as a member on their team once seeing how interested I am in their school versus just sending in an application. Lastly, using NCSA has broaden my horizon to learning about numerous colleges or university in the USA."
"Just wanted to say thank you for your help with NCSA and [our daughter's] college search. I do believe Ave Maria University is the perfect match for her. Ave Maria U. found [our daughter] through NCSA. We would have never considered it had the tennis coach not been persistent with contacting her through email. Ave Maria offered sports and academic scholarships which made it affordable and possible for her to attend. Thanks for all of your help!"

"It is a privilege to ave an NCSA account and it is so helpful because colleges trust this website. So, the potential recruits that coaches from NCSA send to colleges are getting their name out there to college coaches as early as in their freshman year of high school. This site sets you apart from all the other athletes trying to contact coaches which is why I really appreciate it."
"Probably the most exciting part of this process is seeing which colleges are best for you, because every college has positive and negative aspects. My biggest obstacle was overcoming my biggest fear of the process in general, not getting into any college. But there's a perfect college for everyone, you just have to go out and find it. NCSA helped a lot because they game me a lot of advice throughout the process and let me know who was interested in my profile and such. Some advice: don't worry too much about the process. As long as you work hard you will find the college that fits you the best. Sometimes it's not exactly what you had in mind, but it will be even better than what you expected. Also, have fun along the way. You will only be a teenager for a few more years."
