WHAT ARE FTC'S?
The Regional Future Tennis Champions are team based tournaments for players who are under the age of 12. Each Regional tournament is comprised of separate ball color levels (Red, Orange and Green) and a set amount of teams depending on the ball color levels offered at the host facility for that specific RFTC. All Regional Future Tennis Champions events should not exceed four-six hours.
YOUTH PROGRESSION STARS/TROPHIES WILL BE AWARDED
Players who are 10-and-under and participate in the ball color listed on their My Player Page on Tennislink are eligible to earn stars/trophies for this event. Remember, players are always allowed to play one level down from the ball color designation listed on your My Player Page, they simply won't earn stars/trophies for doing this. For instance, a Green Level 1 player can participate in Orange Ball for this tournament.
Players that participate in this event to completion will earn 4 stars for participation. Players are also eligible to earn trophies based on how they place in the tournament, this is in addition to the 4 stars they earn for their participation. A player can earn 3 trophies for being a finalist and 4 trophies for being the champion. So, a player could potentially earn 4 stars, 4 stars and 3 trophies or 4 stars and 4 trophies for this tournament.
