10 and Under JTT

Players that are 10 years old or younger and their parents can access their PlayTracker points within their usta.com account profile, underneath the Family tab. Here, you will see a player's current competition ball color, coach assigned skill level (if applicable) and total points at each competitive level.

 

The new Net Generation PlayTracker will help parents and players navigate their development progress, replacing the current stars and trophies system. Now, players will collect points on an engaging PlayTracker after playing in USTA Team Challenges, USTA Junior Team Tennis, and USTA Junior Circuit tournaments. 

 

The Net Generation PlayTracker is for players aged 5-10 and their parents to track progress at USTA competitive events, all in one place. Using the American Development Model (ADM) framework, players and parents will learn more about the recommended development pathway and earn digital incentives along the way.
