Youth Tennis Progression (YTP) is designed to help players develop their fundamentals and get the most out of tennis. The Youth Progression system rewards 10 AND UNDER kids for competing and inspires them to play more often.

The mission is to clear each level by receiving stars and trophies through competing in tournaments and Junior Team Tennis. Children need a total of 20 stars and/or trophies to progress to the next level.

The levels are broken down into three different sections:

Orange Level 2 > Orange Level 1 > Green Level 1

Once the child has collected 20 stars and/or trophies within each level, or they turn the age of 11, then they have completed the Youth Progression.

Taking time and going through the YTP levels will give children more opportunities for success as they are in the beginning stages of the development of their game. The modified equipment and courts allows the kids to work on the fundamentals of tennis that most 10 and under players could not do playing on a full-size court with regular balls. Youth Tennis Progression is designed to be the building blocks for juniors as they move up the ranks year after year.

At this time, 10 & Under doubles does not count towads receiving any stars/trophies. Only singles will count towards their player progression.
