Eligibility
-          The U.S. Junior Bronze Championships are restricted to players ranked number 65 and below as of the February 24, 2016 rankings run. Players that are age-eligible as of February 24, 2016 may compete in that age division even if they age out of the division before the competition.

-          All players must have played in a minimum of three tournaments between March 21, 2015 and April 27, 2016.

-          Draw sizes will be limited to forty-eight 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. In the event that court capacity allows it, some division sizes may be extended to sixty-four players.
-          All players must be current U.S. Citizens or U.S. Residents, as well as current US Squash members.
-          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).


Policies
-          NO REFUNDS will be issued to players who withdraw from the main draw after the regular entry deadline.

Timeline and Qualification
-          The cut list will be created within 48 hours of the regular entry deadline.
-          Division sizes will lock on the Wednesday 1.5 weeks before the start of the tournament. Once division sizes lock, division sizes will not increase in size even if the division is not at capacity.
-          All players who sign up after the regular entry deadline are considered late entries.  These players should assume that they are on the waitlist unless they have been told otherwise by the Tournament Director.
