2015 Selection Procedure - Cadet and Junior Teams- Changes

February 22, 2015 

After considering requests from parents of athletes and in consultation with the USOC, the High Performance Committee decided to modify the selection procedure, for the second half of the year, as follows: 

USATT will host separate Cadet and Junior Trials at the U.S. Open, for eligible players only, instead of using the U.S. Open Junior and Cadet events for this purpose. 

The playing system for these events is:

First stage:
Preliminary round robins of 3 or 4 players, with top 2 advancing into second stage.

Second stage:
Single elimination draw 

The ratings to be used for draw and seeding purposes will be announced in the entry form. 

No geographical separation will be used.  

The point system and the rest of the selection procedure posted on USATT webpage remain the same.
