I just received the following email from USTA regarding the selection process for the upcoming National Hardcourts and wanted to share it. I will post more as the information becomes available.
Email from USTA Jr Competition
Thank you for your entry to the 2014 USTA National Championships.
The initial selection process for these events will be completed by Monday, July 7, 2014 and we want to make sure the resulting selection lists are clearly understood.
If you have questions about the selection process, please review the process details which are listed on the “selection process” tab on the tournament homepage. Most players will be selected from the Section endorsement lists which are published on the selection process tab of the tournament homepage. Players who are selected will have a green dot next to their name. Alternates will have a yellow dot next to their name. See below:
|1. (green dot)||Jane Doe – Chicago, IL|
|586. (yellow dot)||Sally Backhand – Atlanta, GA|
Players who entered the BG16 or BG18 events, will need to determine if they have been selected for the main draw or the qualifying draw. Players selected for the main draw from the Section endorsement lists, which are published on the selection process tab on the tournament homepage, will have a green dot next to their name as in the example above. Players on the Section Endorsement List (SEL) who have a green dot next to their name followed by a link to a different selection list (see below) should click on the link and find their name on that list to determine their selection status.
|(green dot)||John Doe – Miami, FL (B18s – NSL)|
Players who have been selected for the qualifying event (shown in Step 20 of the selection process) will have a blue dot next to their name (see below):
|68. (blue dot)||George Doe – Los Angeles, CA|
Alternates for the BG16 and BG18 events are alternates for the qualifying event. Alternates in these divisions will also have yellow dots next to their names as shown above.
We wish all players the best of luck in the upcoming National Championships.
