PLAYER AGE


• Players must meet the age requirements for their age divisions.

Players must not age up before:
May 15th for Spring League

PLAYER USTA/JTT MEMBERSHIP

 

Players do not need to have a usta membership any longer for FALL and SPRING Seasons.

It is now only a USTA Junior Team Tennnis League "Free" membership that is needed.

 

**SUMMER LEAGUE PLAY will still require a USTA Membership since players are eligible for National Championships. 

 

Please click on our "USTA and JTT Membership" Link on this site located on our tab.

Foreign Players

Must be here legally (they have their visa, green card, etc.), have set up residency and are attending school. Home schooling is okay as long as it can be verified. Please be able to submit this information to Program Coordinator if asked. USTA membership is required.

10U Eligibility List

Please refer to the 10U eligibility list located to the right of this page.

If a player is labeled "Satellite", they must play Satellite level or above.

If a player is labeled "Advanced", they must play Advanced level or above.

If a 10U player would like to bypass the 10U division, they can play in the 12U only and thus we would go by their NTRP rating (not their 10U eligibility list rating).

Please note that a 10U cannot play in the 14U unless they have passed the USTA's Youth Progression process (See Youth Progression Tab).

JUNIOR RATING FOR 2016-2017 SEASONS (This does not include the 10Us)

We will be using the NTRP rating scale for all juniors.

Please take a look at this USTA website for a summary

Link to Look-up a Players Rating (For Coaches):

Log in as a coach on http://tennislink.usta.com/TeamTennis/Main/HomePage.aspx and click on login and place in your user name and password as usual.

 

Click on “Find a junior Rating Level” located on the right side down by the bottom.

 

Type in the player’s name or usta membership number manually. It might be easier to type in the usta membership number as the system will not find the player you are looking for if it is spelled incorrectly or you try to shorten the name for a comprehensive list. You need to have the name spelled correctly and on the dot.

Don't Have a Rating? Self Rate a Player

1. Click on the below link to get a rating for your player.

https://www.usta.com/Youth-Tennis/Junior-Competition/whats_my_junior_rating/

2.  One will need to create an account or be logged in to designate a rating for a player.

3.  A self rated player's rating will only change when that said self rated player plays 4 matches against other players who have a "true rating".

4.  Playing another player who has a self rate does not count toward the magic "4" number.

5.  Junior ratings are calculated from the tournament and junior team tennis play.

Ratings will Change every 2 weeks normally on Monday or Tuesday
