What Is The Stars & Trophies 10U Youth Progression Pathway?

Designed to help players develop their fundamentals and get the most out of tennis, the Stars & Trophies 10U Youth Progression Pathway rewards kids ages 7-10 years of age for competing and inspires them to play more often.

The mission is to clear each level by collecting a combination of 20 virtual participation Stars and/or achievement Trophies. Players are able to collect Stars and Trophies through Play Days, Stars & Trophies 10U Orange and Green Ball Tournaments and 10U Junior Team Tennis.

Why Youth Progression?
In an effort to provide a skill-based pathway for junior players to start and progress through the USTA Tournament system, the Stars & Trophies 10U Pathway is being formed. ADVERTISEMENT  It is important for our beginning young players for the following reasons: 

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