Team USA

USA Racquetball is a member of the U.S. Olympic Committee and designated as the National Governing Body of racquetball in the United States.  As such, USA Racquetball is proud to manage the Adult and Junior National Racquetball Teams.  These Teams have represented our country admirably over the years, having achieved unparalleled success on the international racquetball stage.  Today’s international competitive climate is tougher than ever.  A number of countries, in part based on government support that Team USA does not enjoy, are challenging the United States for racquetball supremacy.  Please consider supporting American’s finest players with a contribution toward the TEAM USA CHALLENGE.

JUNIOR TEAM QUALIFYING

For Juniors, two events serve as qualifiers for the U.S. Junior National Team, where benchmark performances must be reached in selected divisions to earn an appointment to the team. They are:

The National High School Championships
  • Gold Division winners (1 each, male & female = 2)

The Junior Olympic Championships (effective 2003)

  • 18 and under, singles finalists (2 each, male & female = 4)
  • 16 and under, singles finalists (2 each, male & female = 4)
  • 14 and under, singles finalists (2 each, male & female = 4)
  • 18 and under, doubles champions (2 each, male & female = 4)
  • 16 and under, doubles champions (2 each, male & female = 4)
  • 14 and under, doubles champions (2 each, male & female = 4)

By reaching these benchmarks, junior athletes are appointed to the U.S. Junior Team for a term of one year, and are then added to a pool of athletes to compete internationally and conduct goodwill tours abroad.
NOTE: Junior Team USA appointments are for one year from the date earned; those athletes who qualify in one year remain on the team until they either re-qualify - or fail to do so - at the following year's event. Athletes may also re-qualify at the next available opportunity, thereby "double-qualifying" and extending their current appointments accordingly. Prior to 1998, junior teams were determined on the basis of an annual "team trial" selection process.
