"Local clubs, 10 and Under Tennis programs and whole tennis communities are encouraged to come out and support the host schools and all the collegiate student-athlete participants representing the many different colleges and universities," says Tom Loughrey of the Intercollegiate Tennis Association.

Regional 2014 championships in Florida will be held on:

Sept. 25-28 -- NAIA Men's/Women's Regional Championships, Embry-Riddle, Daytona Beach
Sept. 26-28 -- Division II Men's/Women's Regional Championships, Florida Southern College, Lakeland
Sept. 26-28 -- Junior College Women's Regional Championships, Sanlando Park Tennis Complex, Altamonte Springs

The USTA/ITA Regional Championships feature the top men's and women's players from each of the ITA's regions. In all, 8,000 varsity tennis players from 600 schools will participate in USTA/ITA Regional Championships across the country.

The small college (NCAA Divisions II and III, NAIA and Junior/Community College) singles and doubles champions from the USTA/ITA Regional Championships will advance to the USTA/ITA National Small College Championships.

The USTA/ITA National Small College Championships is comprised of the eight regional champions (and/or at-large selections) from NCAA Divisions II and III, NAIA and junior/community colleges.

The USTA/ITA National Small College Championship is the only national championship event for individual singles and doubles at the NCAA Division II and NAIA levels. It is also the only tournament that combines all levels of junior/community colleges (NJCAA Divisions I and III and the California division).

The singles and doubles champions at each divisional level then compete to become the overall "Super Bowl" champions. The Super Bowl champions earn wildcards into the USTA/ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships, featuring the Division I regional winners.
