Youth Tennis Progression

WHAT IS THE 10U PROGRESSION?

USTA has designed a best-in-class system to track the progress of junior players, ages 7 to10 from orange ball to green ball and green ball to yellow ball. The system will track a player’s progress through participation in designated tournaments and Junior Team Tennis. Players will receive stars for completing tournaments. Trophies are also awarded for select tournaments.

 

The mission is to clear each level by collecting a combination of 20 virtual participation stars and/or achievement trophies.

 

The more they play and the more they improve their skills and clear each level, the more stars and trophies they accumulate.

 

WHY YOUTH PROGRESSION? 

The Youth Progression provides a clear and skill-based pathway for junior players to progress through the USTA tournament system.

The following are a few examples of the importance of Youth Tennis Progression for our young players:

  • Defined pathway
  • Level-based play
  • Goal-setting
  • Incentive to play
  • Skill development
  • Recognition
  • Affiliation
  • Connection

 

WHERE AM I ON THE PROGRESSION?

All new players begin playing in Orange Level 2 tournaments.

Parents can easily track their kids' progress through the progression by logging on to their acount in TennisLink tournaments.usta.com and switching to their child's Profile Page.

 

Progress is displayed as “trophies” for achievement and “stars” for participation. This page helps players, parents and coaches track progress and find upcoming play opportunities that fit a player’s age and skill level.

 

Players must accumulate at least 20 stars and/or trophies to advance from level to level. Achievement trophies are awarded based on each state’s guidelines.

HOW DO I GET STARTED?

  • Players must be a minimum age of 7 years old to register for 10 and Under tagged Youth Tennis Progression tournaments.
  • On the first day of their 11th birthday month, players will automatically progress out of the system and into 12 and Under tournaments.
  • Before the age of 7, players can play in unlimited practice matches, Play Days, Junior Team Tennis and junior tournaments using the red ball.
