JUNIOR TOURNAMENT PATHWAY

Once you have completed the Net Generation Orange and Green levels in the Net Generation Play Tracker or turn 11, USTA Junior Tournaments are the next step on the USTA Intermountain Competitive Pathway. With junior tournaments, USTA Intermountain strives to provide quality competitive opportunities for players to contest and develop their skills against others. Participating in USTA Junior Tournaments can propel your game to the next level and prepare you for competition in high school, college or even the pros.

 

USTA Junior Tournaments are offered in a variety of formats, including individual, team, non-elimination and elimination. 

 

Levels of Tournaments

The new tournament structure utilizes seven levels of events, ranging from Level 7 (Intermediate) to Level 1 (National Championships), as well as a national ranking system that will distribute points consistently across the country. Level 1-3 National events are included on the USTA National Junior Schedule and sanctioned by the USTA National Office. Sectional Level 3-7 and 10 & Under events are sanctioned by the USTA Intermountain Section. The term "Open" means that you may play these events no matter where you live or what Section you are from. "Closed" events require residency in that Section.

Age Divisions and Eligibility

USTA Intermountain tournaments are offered in the 10 & Under (10U), 12U, 14U, 16U, & 18U divisions. Players become ineligible to play in an age division on the first day of their birthday month, the year they turn 11, 13, 15, 17, or 19. 

 

Rankings

Ranking Points are earned by winning singles and doubles matches at all L1-L7 tournaments and designated ITF tournaments. Bonus Ranking Points are earned for winning singles matches over highly-ranked players. Ranking Points earned by winning singles and doubles matches are combined for a player’s Ranking Point total and players are ordered based on this total. For more specific information on how many tournaments are counted and what percentage is from doubles events, read the Juniors Ranking FAQ.
