Summary

The Academy is an International Sports Mecca for teen athletes. There  are only two ways in.  Deep pockets or enough talent to score a  scholarship.   
 
Young tennis star Maya's dreams have finally come  true when she earns a scholarship to The Academy. Plucked from her small  town, Maya moves to the sports training facility/boarding school to  (hopefully) start the beginning of her pro career. But Maya's fantasy of  The Academy doesn't quite match the reality. Because where there are hot, talented teens, there's a lot of drama. Meet the players: 
 
Nicole: A tennis star who feels threatened by Maya (but she'd never admit it). 
Cleo: Maya's rebel/punk roommate who is nearing the top of the golf world. 
Renee: The gorgeous swimmer with enough money to buy her way into The Academy. 
Travis: The son of The Academy owner--perfectly groomed to be the next NFL star.  
Jake: Travis' younger brother--the bad boy to his brother's good.
