Junior Tournament Competitive Structure
The USTA will be launching a new, simplified nationwide junior tournament competitive structure in January 2021. Click here to find out more about this exciting new update.
In anticipation of the changes coming to the USTA Junior Tournament Competitive structure in 2021, the Section is working in partnership with USTA National staff on new initiatives specific to high school tennis players. Our plans include Section pilots of new initiatives as well as adjustments to the Junior Regulations to align with the new 2021 Competitive Structure. During this time of transition, players will not be eligible to earn ranking points for High School events.
Schools interested in participating in future High School pilot events are asked to contact Rachel Kros at firstname.lastname@example.org.
