Because this is a Level 3 STA Event the following Selection Process is being used: Top 32 players applying from the usta/southern latest standings list. For Boys and Girls 12-18: 28 players from this age group will be selected and up to 4 players from the younger age group who are eligible from the younger age group, who have a standing in the top 40 of the younger age group, and are not in the selected 28, will be selected. The names of the player who have been selected will appear as competitors. Aternates are listed in the report section. Do not refer to the alternates on the far left side of the web page after competitors have been listed. (that list is not updated). Players are allowed to enter two divisions with these guidelines: #1. players selected to both age divisions they apply for will automatically be selected to the older age division. they would be removed from the other age division. #2. players not selected to either divisions would remain on the alternates lists for both divisions but would be obligated to play the division they first get in, from the alt. list. they would be removed from the alternate list in the other division. #3. players selected to one age division woud be removed from the alternates list of the division they were not selected. #4. once a player is selected for any one division no changes can be made.
LEVEL 3 FORMAT
As of Jan. 2012 all USTA Southern Junior Level 3 tournaments will be following the following format unless stated otherwise on the tournament homepage. Highlights of the New Format are as follows:
*ALL LEVEL 3 TOURNAMENTS WILL BE HELD OVER A TWO DAY PERIOD (SATURDAY AND SUNDAY) UNLESS APPROVED BY THE STA.
*All tournaments shall have two 16 balanced draws in each age division. The two draws will be determined by use of the waterfall system. Format: Feed in with an independent draw for the losers of the first feed in match. This will guarantee three matches.
*If number of participants goes under 24 (23 and under), one draw will be used instead.
*Format will remain the same for all Level 3 events. The only change will be for an Indoor event which will be able to add one day.
*Seeding shall follow the USTA Southern Section seeding regulations. Players selected on their 10’s standing shall not be considered for seeding in the 12’s division.
*Scoring: Tie Break in lieu of the third set shall be used in all matches. Short scoring: No ad scoring or “Short” sets, first player/team to win four games wins the set provided there is a two game margin over the opponent(s), may be used due to inclement weather. Before changing format due to inclement weather, this must be approved by Section and State.
*10's will play on 60ft court using Orange Low Compression balls and 25" racquets. Scoring: TBD
