USTA North Carolina invites all players, parents and coaches to attend the College Info Session at the site of the ACC Men’s and Women’s Tennis Championships. Our session will be held at 1pm on Saturday April 21st at the Cary Tennis Park. The ACC Championships for tennis will be held April 19-22 at the Cary Tennis Park. All championship information can be found at http://bit.ly/2012ACCTennis.
Our information session will feature Kathy Sell Smith. Kathy has done everything there is to do in college tennis in a very short time. She reached top 10 in singles in the Campbell/ITA College Tennis Rankings and was an ITA All-American at Duke. Sell-Smith was an assistant tennis coach at Oregon and was named head coach at Princeton at age 25. In five years as head coach, she led Princeton to an Ivy League championship in 2009, and her 2008 recruiting class was ranked #1 in the country. Sell-Smith currently resides in Durham, N.C.
We will also be joined by Mary Jo Sell, Kathy's mom. Mary Jo has parented four children through the USTA junior ranks with all four receiving Division I tennis scholarships and have now gone on to coach at the professional and college level.
You will gain great insight into the recruiting process and a helpful hint or two about good common sense parenting of successful junior players. The session will last right at an hour and then we invite you to enjoy the matches. The cost is $5/per person which includes a ticket for the Championships.
