10 & Under/Youth Tennis Progression

 

What is the Youth Tennis Progression in 10 and Under Tennis?

Designed to help players develop their fundamentals and get the most out of tennis, the Youth Tennis Progression (YTP) rewards 10 and Under kids for competing and inspires them to play more often.

The mission is to clear each level by collecting a combination of 20 virtual participation stars and/or achievement trophies. 

Players can track their progress on their Player Profile Page in USTA's TennisLink.

The more they play, and the more they improve their skills and clear each level, the more stars and trophies they accumulate.

Where am I on the Progression?

USTA Southern tracks both participation (stars) and achievement (trophies) for players who have a USTA membership. If you are not a member, click here.

All new players starting after January 15, 2020 will begin playing in Orange Level 1 tournaments. All new players starting after January 15, 2020 will start their Youth Progression missions in Orange Level 1.

Players and parents can easily track progress through the progression by logging on to the Player Profile Page by clicking here. Enter the player's USTA number and password to be directed to the player's welcome screen. This screen will allow the player to access various items including his or her “Youth Tennis Progression Progress Report.” This will be available to Southern players beginning January 1, 2017.

Progress is displayed as “trophies” for achievement and “stars” for participation. This page helps players, parents and coaches track progress and find upcoming play opportunities that fit a player’s age and skill level.

Players must accumulate at least 20 stars and/or trophies to advance from level to level. Achievement trophies are awarded based on each state’s guidelines.
