College Coaches' Forum

We encourage coaches from all divisions to participate in the College Coaches’ Recruitment Forum at the Barnes Tennis Center.

The tournament will compile a biography spread sheet which will include information from all players who complete and return the biography information form.  The spread sheet is included in the price of the Forum, but will not be available until all players have registered.

Please note: The tournament will not allow meetings between coaches and potential recruits in any areas of Barnes Tennis Center other than the designated spaces for the Forum.  We expect all coaches to cooperate with this policy.


There are two options for the 2016 Forum, both of which are $60.

Option 1: Reserve table space for four in the Barnes Tennis Center building during the 11:00 am – 2:00 pm forum. This option includes lunch for the head and assistant coaches, biography spread sheet, and draw sheets.

Option 2: Register as a Private Appointment coach.  You will have access to the enclosed, outdoor table space at Barnes Tennis Center on a first come, first served basis and the opportunity to set up as many individual appointments as desired with potential recruits.  Only the players you contact will be given access to the private-appointments area. This option includes lunch for the head and assistant coaches,  biography spread sheet, and draw sheets. The private-appointments area will be open from 11:00 am - 4:00 p.m.

To register for the Forum, please complete and return the registration form (PDF).
If you have questions, please send e-mail to Ellen Ehlers at

Also note that PLAYERS CANNOT SPEAK TO ANY COLLEGE COACH AFTER THEY REGISTER FOR THE TOURNAMENT OR AT ANY TIME WHILE THEY ARE STILL IN THE TOURNAMENT. If they do so, you and the player will be violating NCAA rules, and this could affect the player's eligibility.

Coaches should be aware that compliance procedures may differ across the country and should clear their plans for contacting players at The Nationals with their school's compliance officers.
