Youth Progression 10 and Under
The USTA has designed a best in class system to track the progress of junior players ages 10 and under from orange ball to green to yellow ball.
The system will track a child's progress through participation in Junior Team Tennis and Tournaments.
Kids will receive stars for participating and can receive trophies for champion and finalist tournament results. This helps more advanced players to move faster through the system and in similar to what they will experience with the 12U-18U ranking system.
Kids are given a mission to earn stars and trophies at each level of their progression. They will strive to complete each mission by collecting participation starts and winning trophies based on their results.
Here is the website for more specific information on how many stars, trophies and more needed to move up including grandfathered players.
