No changes to the team line-up may be made except for illness, injury, or personal circumstances and are subject to the approval of the Tournament Committee.

Team Match. Each Team Match shall consist of three doubles matches followed by six singles matches. Each team will receive one point for each singles win and the team that wins a majority of the doubles matches receives one point.
Determining the Winner of a Team Match: Each singles counts for one point. The team winning the majority of doubles matches will get one point. The total possible points earned in a Team Match is 7 points. The team that wins the most points wins the Team Match.

TOURNAMENT REGISTRATION AND SELECTION PROCESS
Beginning in 2017, this site is hosting the USTA National Spring Team Championships for Boys’ and Girls' 18, 16 and 14 Divisions
The 12s will be at a separate site and different date.
Amateur players who meet the U.S. citizenship or residency requirements (see Section 4), the USTA age eligibility requirements, and membership requirements (current USTA membership) may enter.
The entry deadline for the USTA National Spring Team Championships is Thursday, February 08, 2018 11:59 AM (Eastern Time). This is one minute before NOON EASTERN TIME; it will still be daylight when registration closes. The selection process starts immediately once registration closes, so it is not possible to add late entries to the selection process even if you missed the deadline by a few minutes.
Players must enter using TennisLink.
When tournaments are asked to give prior written approval to enter the USTA National Spring Team Championships and a concurrent tournament, that discretion continues to lie with the tournament. This tournament will not approve concurrent entries.
TOURNAMENT SELECTION AND ALTERNATES:
Separate USTA National Spring Team Championships shall be held for boys and girls. The TennisLink selection system shall accept 32 players from each division (BG 18-14) into the draw as follows:
• Up to 4 wild cards using the same process established for USTA National Championships (See Wildcards section below). Wildcards will not be selected during the automated process. Wildcards will be selected at a later date. It will appear there are openings for alternates, but we cannot fill these spots until the wildcard decisions are made.
• The remaining players from most recently published National Standings List from each age division, provided they have submitted timely entries, in the order in which their names appear.
Online Notification: Main draw players and alternates can view lists published to the TennisLink Tournament Home Page no later than 3 days after the entries close. All players accepted by the TennisLink system will be sent a confirmation email that includes as part of the text of the email the USTA Release and Waiver Form (please email, email@example.com or fax, (251) 208-5195, in this completed waiver). Any accepted player whose credit card was unable to be charged will also be sent an email notifying them of the problem with the credit card and instructing them to contact the tournament to make arrangements for payment.
Ordered Alternate List. The Tournament Committee shall prepare an alternate list for each division of those players with timely entries not accepted into the draw in the order in which their names appear on the same National Standings List used to accept players into the draw. Late entrants shall be placed on the alternate list in the order received after timely entries. Late entries received at the same time shall be ordered by lot.
The Alternate List will be published to the TennisLink Tournament Home Page as soon as possible and no later than 5 days after entries close. The order of players on an Alternate List is NOT to be changed if a new National Standings List is published. Before this list is published, you can see your order by going to the "Selection Process" tab and selecting your division. Find the first yellow dot and count down until you find your name, that is your order number.
On-Site Alternates. On-site alternates are those players on the alternate list who have come to the tournament site to be a last-minute replacement for a withdrawing player. The Tournament Committee shall establish a procedure for checking in on-site alternates and instruct players on the tournament website. The procedure shall include the following:
• On each day in which alternates may be accepted into a draw, any alternate desiring admittance must check in and be ready for play no later than 15 minutes prior to the first scheduled match time of the event for which they are an alternate.
• The order of the alternates is based on the original Alternate List published by the tournament, not a more recent National Standings List, and not in the order in which the players check in.
On-Site Alternates may be admitted into the tournament to fill in for a player unable to play a match. The original player if able may continue in the original spot on the team in subsequent matches. If the player is withdrawing from the tournament and not just a match, the onsite alternate will stay in that spot on the team.
This is a unique event in that it is a team format with individual registration. Because of that, the tournament software is not capable of providing the usual formats for displaying Selection Lists and Alternates Lists by division. We have to go to a lot of extra work to create and post the reports you expect to see. The first few days after selections are made, we will be diligently working on this; so please be patient with us.
Email is the preferred and most times only method of accepted communication. Emails are answered in the order received. If you send more than one email on the same subject, you will get responses to all emails in order. When emailing, always expect a response. That is your confirmation your email has been received and any necessary actions will be taken. If your email prompts a change that should be seen online, just know all changes require multiple steps and removal and uploading of reports. Usually, the response to email is made after the action has been taken on our end. While we are capable of making mistakes, give us 24 hours before you expect to see it online. If you do not see the change within a couple of days, please email and if necessary call.

MANDATORY TOURNAMENT CHECK IN:
ALL PLAYERS MUST BE PHYSICALLY ON SITE AT THE HOST HOTEL BY 8:00 PM FRIDAY, MARCH 2nd, IN ORDER TO BE PLACED ON A TEAM. THERE WILL BE NO EXCEPTIONS!
In theory, the tournament schedule is to have a practice day and matches start on Suday. We now have the flexibility to start matches earlier if it looks like weather might be an issue. In order to start matches early, possibly even Saturday morning, players have to be here Friday night. There will be no exceptions to this Mandatory Check In. We understand some of you might have weather delays in your area preventing you from getting here on time. We strongly suggest you make your travel plans with delays in mind. If we have onsite alternates or alternates within driving distance (three hours or less); we will not be able to save a spot for you because the team is dependent on all positions. You should make your plans with the Friday Mandatory checkin time as your guide.
ALTERNATES - We strongly suggest you pay close attention to your position on the alternates list. If you can come on a moments notice, please email the tournament director of your availability. If you are the first or second alternate, you may want to consider being onsite close to the end of mandatory registration. No matter where you are on the alternates list, if you are in driving distance, you may want to be onsite close to the end of mandatory registration. Any open spots at 8:00 pm will first go to an onsite alternate based on where they fall on the alternates list if more than one is present. If there are no onsite alternates, we will start calling alternates in order from the list.
SATURDAY PRACTICE COURT SCHEDULE
Entry to this tournament is open to all USTA members. Entries must be submitted by Thursday, February 8, 2018 11:59:00 AM Eastern Time. Only USTA members can register online if available.
