Junior players may continue to play in the 12, 14, 16 and 18 age divisions until the month they turn 13, 15, 17, or 19, respectively.

ENTERING CONCURRENT TOURNAMENTS AND SELECTION PROCESS USTA National Level 2 Tournaments:
Several times each year, the USTA has sanctioned concurrent USTA National Level 2 Tournaments and entry is permitted in more than one tournament. It is important to understand the consequences of this decision.
If you want to play in a USTA National Level 2 Tournament, but are unsure if you will get in, you may enter up to two different age divisions of up to four sites of USTA National Level 2 Tournaments. When selection is done, players are selected for the oldest age division first based on the most recently published National Standing List of the division of the tournament.
· If you are selected into the older age division entered, you will not be selected into the younger age division.
· If you are not selected into the older age division, you will only be considered for selection into the younger division and you will only be eligible to be an alternate in the younger division.
Additionally, the computerized selection system attempts to fill the draws based on the 1st choice of sites of all players. If spots are still open, it looks at the 2nd choice of sites for the remaining players, then the 3rd, and finally the 4th. It is VERY IMPORTANT to only prioritize sites you are willing to play.
Those players who have not been selected after all four USTA National Level 2 Tournament draws have been filled shall be placed on the alternate lists at all tournaments for which the players have indicated a preference. The players are ordered on the alternate lists based on the player's standing on the National Selection List used to select players.
