International Travel Team
Arcahaie Tennis Program
The H.E.R.O. International Tennis Travel Team is the highest level tennis program that we offer. Acceptance on the team is reserved for players that display excellent character, superior academic achievement, and high quality athletic performance. Players selected for the International Travel Team must also speak and understand English proficiently in order to communicate effectively with coaches, players, and sponsors overseas. The team travels several times a year to participate in USTA, ITF, and other privately sanctioned tournaments. Additionally, selected players are offered the opportunity to train at top tennis academies across the United States. Player selection is dependent on the ability to earn a visa to the United States. Our most accomplished players have been granted renewable 5-year visas to the United States, a privilege that also grants access to most carribean nations, Mexico, and many other countires without having to navigate futher visa requirements. Participants on the H.E.R.O. International Travel Team are expected to complete high school degrees in both Haiti and online for the United States with the ultimate goal of earning scholarships to colleges and universities in the United States.
