USTA Junior Team Tennis

WHAT IS JUNIOR TEAM TENNIS?
USTA Jr. Team Tennis is a national youth tennis league played in all 50 states. It is a 8 to 12 week program of team practice and match play for boys and girls to get together to play singles, doubles, and mixed doubles against other teams. It promotes values you would expect from any sport by fostering a spirit of cooperation, unity and individual self-worth. Also, it’s a fun environment for kids where they learn that succeeding is really more about how you play the game – win or lose.
Age Divisions - 10 & under, 12 & under, 14 & under, 16 & under, and 18 & under
Skill Divisions - NTRP 2.5 level, 3.0 level, 3.5 level, 4.0 level, and Open level.

2012 SPRING SEASON
Welcome to the first season of the Maui Junior Tennis Team League. We look forward to a fun season on the courts with the kids and appreciate your involvement with the league.  When forming your team, remember to check each player’s record to determine proper placing. Check Tennis Link to access your players’ records for last season, when applicable.
 
For all players that competed in the Winter Section Championships, calculate their winning percentage by combining the season and sectional match results.  Defaulted matches do not count when determining a player’s win/loss percentage.
 
Please remember that you’ll need to register at least (6) players when submitting a team by MONDAY, 3/19, along with your Team Confirmation Form.  I would like to ensure that once teams are submitted, we can avoid any teams dropping out and changes to the schedule once it is made, as this first season will be a short one, so we can have our league coincide with sectionals on Oahu.
 
It is recommended that two coaches be listed per team, however if additional coaches are submitted, a $5 fee (subject to change with notice) shall be charged, per coach, for their criminal background screening.  Also, please check with me if you need confirmation whether or not your background check is currently valid.  The background screening is valid for one year and must be repeated annually.
 
If you have players seeking teams or if you are seeking players, please e-mail me at sonia@isotov.comwith the following information:  Division, Name, Phone Number, and Team Name.  I will then forward all inquiries back to all of you.
 
Please follow the following schedule and get your forms in on time.
