About The Combine

The JMTA College Recruiting Combine gives prospects access to the country's top college coaches, and gives coaches access to prospects, either live, in-person, or through live-streaming, along with detailed tennis and fitness performance reporting, to help them find the right recruits for their programs. Match results from the Combine count toward prospects' Universal Tennis Ratings (UTR) and select matches will be "live-streamed" so college coaches from across the country, who don't attend in-person, can view.

Combine applicants are evaluated using a variety of criteria designed to confirm their likelihood of being actively recruited by the coaches in attendance. The Combine provides all players with a personal player portal that stores event information, draws and scores, as well as fitness and other testing results. The college coaches' panel discussion will be a weekend highlight for players and parents. Players will also receive Sports Vision testing performed by JMTA's official sports vision provider, Dr. Anne Reuter of Gold Coast Optometric Vision Performance, one of the nation's top experts in the world of Sports Vision training.

Tennis Analytics will record all matches and will offer packages to Combine participants for purchase, including edited match videos with detailed analytics, and a custom video player that will allow players to quickly view matches and to share them with college coaches.
