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

Click on the bars above to learn more about the Youth Tennis Progression.

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.

USTA Southern has adopted this system for play beginning January 1, 2017. Initial progression levels will be determined based on your tournament results completed through September 30, 2016.
