WHAT IT TAKES
THE HIGHWAY TO COLLEGE IS A JOURNEY THAT REQUIRES DISCIPLINE, COMMITMENT, AND AN ABILITY TO NAVIGATE THE PATH; WE ARE HERE TO HELP FAMILIES NAVIGATE WHICHEVER PATH THEY CHOOSE.
We analyzed the time spent on the court by our youth who have successfully attained a college scholarship to determine the minimum weekly requirement to continue on the highway to college.
The table below represents a minimum weekly tennis and conditioning requirement for parents and children to consider as they determine whether to pursue a college tennis scholarship. Depending on the tennis reputation of the institution a parent/child aspires to attend, we would recommend adopting the Age 14-18 session cadence as early as possible.
The goal of XSTEF is to couple donations, grants, and program revenue to support a tennis and education regimen robust enough to put students on a pathway to college.
XSTEF offers free or heavily discounted after-school support to local youth between September and May. We offer these services from 3pm - 7pm Monday through Thursday. Support is provided by the University of Chicago Civic Knowledge project.
