With just eighteen years old Gema received an 100% tennis scholarship to attend Kansas State University. After one year playing in the NCAA division I category she was offered to play at the notorious Chicago State University another division I team. Having two years of NCAA division I playing experience she further moved on to the NAIA system to a school in Pulaski TN where she was captain of the tennis team two consecutive years in a row later becoming assistant coach for her last semester. Beyond the many great victories Gema has achieved she of all people understands that maybe the first or the biggest best University might not be the best fit for you. Having five years experience and having played and visited many Universities she understands that sometimes it is difficult to fit with some coaching styles and cultural views, that is one of the fundamentals as to why she created Spainsports to help students and athletes alike who would like to go to the States to study but at the same time finding the right fit for them.
