USTA Eastern will be hosting its 31st annual College Showcase Day on Sunday, November 5 at the Saw Mill Club in Mount Kisco, N.Y.
The showcase gives high school sophomores, juniors and seniors an opportunity to meet college tennis coaches, collect information, listen to experts and learn about the NCAA process.
“The task for these kids to find the right college fit is a really daunting one, so what Julie [Bliss-Beal] has been able to do here at the Eastern Section should be used as a model across the country on how to pair up tennis players with college coaches,” said Eric Butorac, former professional tennis player who has been a speaker at the showcase for a number of years now. “For a lot of these players who want to play college tennis, this is a great opportunity for them to meet so many coaches at one time. And for coaches to be able to see so many kids interested in playing college tennis at one time, as opposed to traveling around the country, it is beneficial.”
