12 and Under Event GREEN BALL
12 & UNDER AGE DIVISIONS
At a joint conference call held with the Southwest Section Junior Competition Committee and the Southwest Section Coaches Commission it was unanimously decided that all 12 and under competition in the Southwest Section will use the GREEN BALL in 2012. Consequently, the Valley of the Sun tournament will use the GREEN BALL.
Based on feedback from Parents, Coaches and the Coaches Commission this decision was made to allow for one pool of competitors in the 12 & under division in tournaments (instead of yellow and green ball divisions). Additionally, this will allow all 12 & under competitors equal opportunity to receive national points and earn spots on to our Zonal teams.
The parameters for advancement from Orange Ball competition to 12 & under competition are still in place.
12s - 18s: Best 2 out of 3 sets regular scoring. The 7 pt tie breaker will be used in all sets tied 6 – 6. This tournament may be flighted. There will be a modified feed-in backdraw.
10s: 2 Short Sets, (first to 4 and win by 2, or tiebreak at 4 all), 3rd Set if needed 7 point tiebreak. Regular scoring.
Doubles: Eight game Pro Set with a tiebreaker at 8 all.
If you have not indicated your doubles partner, please do so by Wednesday, February 1st or you will be matched up. Please email BoilerSal@cox.net with your doubles info.
