Eligibility

The U.S. Junior Silver Squash Championships are restricted to players ranked number 33 and below as of the February 18, 2015 rankings run. Players that are age-eligible as of February 18, 2015 may compete in that age division even if they age out of the division before the competition.

Draw sizes will be limited to thirty-two players per division, selected based on descending order of ranking. If a player does not make it into a division based on his or her ranking, he or she may participate in an older age division if space remains in that division after release of the cut list and in accordance with the late entry management guidelines.

All players must be current U.S. Citizens or U.S. Residents, as well as current US Squash members.

Please refer to the Accredited Junior Tournament Ranking Points Table for the available points at the U.S. Junior Silver Championships.

Players may compete in only 1 of the 3 U.S. Junior Individual Championships (not including the U.S. Junior Open Squash Championships).

Boys’ and Girls’ Under 11 Division Only: Players may participate in multiple U.S. Junior Championships in the Under 11 Division if they are qualified based on their ranking. In the event that a player chooses to play in multiple U.S. Championships in the Under 11 Division, that player will only receive points for the highest level tournament in which they compete. For example, a player competing in both the U.S. Junior Championships (Closed) and the U.S. Junior Silver Championships will only receive points in the U.S. Junior Championships (Closed).
