Junior Competition Update
USTA/PNW is currently in the process of an organizational restructure, which includes the marketing, junior competition and administration departments. Junior competition has been and remains a strategic priority for our Section. To that end, we have posted new position descriptions and will begin vetting candidates over the next several weeks. If you are interested in learning more about these positions, please see “Job Listings” under the “About Us” tab of our website.
Here is what is ahead as we close out the year. The final 2015 Level 4 event in Roseburg, OR will take place as scheduled (Boys = December 4-6 and Girls = December 11-13) and be directed by Len Spencer. We are also hosting the Pacific Cup on December 4-6, where players from four Sections are competing in a fun team environment. Additionally, the rankings and endorsement list are being updated and published on a regular basis.
Plans for 2016 also remain on track. We are still accepting tournament sanction requests from Tournament Directors and facilities across our Section. In late December, we encourage you to look on TennisLink for approved sanctioned events. For your planning purposes, we can announce the hosts for the 2016 Level 3 and Level 4 events:
***We are in dialogue with facilities in Seattle regarding hosting this event and hope to have a firm commitment by mid-December. If the facilities decline, we will seek alternative options, including placing the event in another location. Please note that it is our goal to achieve geographic diversity in finding Level 3 and 4 tournament hosts. As you might guess, this is contingent on both meeting the number of courts required to accommodate the draw size and the facility’s willingness to host and availability during the tournament calendar windows that USTA National dictates to each Section.
The 2016 Junior Competition Rules and Regulations are in the process of being finalized and will be posted by mid-December. We will provide you with more updates in the coming weeks. Thank you.
