US ATHLETIC SCHOLARSHIPS AND MENTORING
Transition Coach 4 Athletes
Transition Coach 4 Athletes (TC4A) is a global coaching, mentoring and US College Sporting Scholarship Placement service helping athletes navigate the often challenging world of balancing school while maximizing sports performance.
TC4A is ideal for High School and College student-athletes. We will build on your strengths, address areas for development, and ultimately maximize your potential in sport, study and life.
I help athletes globally navigate the often challenging world of college sports. I played professional tennis and represented Norway in the Federation Cup from 1996 - 1998. In addition, I turned semi-pro in golf and understand what is required to compete on a world stage. On the WTA tour, I reached a career-high ranking of 223 in doubles and played in the US Open Singles in 1994 and 1995. During my US College playing days at the University of Georgia, I won three NCAA National Team Championships and in 1995 my partner and I were the NCAA's #1 ranked doubles team.
Following my athletic career, I went on to coach Division 1 women's college tennis for 11 years and was known for my practical, honest, and direct approach to the development of both the person and the athlete. I help athletes in ALL sports to find US College Scholarships. I privately coach and mentor athletes during transition periods, helping them to pursue their sporting goals and dreams.

Meagan Donovan - Mentoring & College Placement (Women's Tennis Washington & Lee)
"It has truly been a pleasure working with Tina Samara! I feel that she has not only been a terrific mentor throughout the college process but also has helped me develop as a tennis player! Her ability to talk and communicate about any situation or issue at any time was a huge plus because my experience with other recruiting agencies was that they treat you like a number. Tina’s professionalism, guidance, and sense of humor were greatly appreciated every step of the way. Overall, I have really enjoyed my time as a player with transition coach for athletes, and truly look forward to continuing to talk with Tina during my upcoming college years! I would highly recommend Tina Samara to any juniors looking for the next level!!"
