Youth Progression Pathway Launches Jan 1, 2018

USTA has created a “Youth Progression Pathway” nationally that serves as a guide for coaches, parents and players to help ensure that kids 10 and under participate in events using the appropriate ball and court for their skill level.

Players will compete at appropriate levels of play as they progress through stages based on age, participation and achievement. By providing a pathway, young players will have the opportunity to experience suitable levels of competition as well as develop their games tactically and technically.

The progression tracking system rewards players for competing and inspires them to play more often.

It’s not just about winning and losing – it’s about having fun, engaging young children and helping them fall in love with tennis.
