What are options a junior player can use to gain experience before turning pro?

College vs. Junior

The NCAA isn't just about hoops and bowls. It also runs the college tennis circuit. College tennis is more about the team rather than the individual achievements like you'd find with the ITF or USTA. True, the matches still consist of singles & doubles. Though, at the end of a college meet all of the scores of matches count towards the entire teams record. There's always some junior international tennis player with a ton of talent that will turn pro without needing going to college. However, a lot of players opt for college because they feel it's a great way to help them mature on and off the court before they enter the pro circuit. Though, the other option is junior players can also get some education & experience at a year round junior tennis camp that also offers schooling.
