The USTA offers all kinds of options to kids who are interested in competing in junior tennis. Aside from national or world tournaments kids can play in tournaments in their region. Based on how they do in these regional tournaments they will be ranked accordingly (ex. 3rd in the east, 5th in the west.) These rankings are also broken out into age groups like the 16s , the 14s, the 12s, etc. If a child excels in their region they can then move on to national or junior international tennis.
