Junior Rankings

US Squash junior rankings are usually based on points earned in national tournaments. However, during the coronavirus pandemic US Squash is using an interim ratings based ranking system. Please see details for both below.

Interim Junior Ratings Based Rankings Overview

Junior rankings are currently based on a player rating. A rating is earned by playing and recording matches on Club Locker. A player needs to win at least one match and lose one match to start a rating. As more matches are recorded so the rating becomes more accurate. The rating scale ranges form 1 to 7 with 7 representing the best in the world. The average player will have a rating of about 3.5. Matches that will affect ratings include tournaments, leagues, box leagues, ladders and friendly matches. Each players’ ranking reflects his or her rating compared to that of all other players in his or her age group.

In order to receive a junior national ranking, players must meet the following criteria:

  • US Squash Membership
  • Passed Age-Specific Online Referee Exam
Age Group Exam Required
U13 Level 1
U15 Level 2
U17 Level 3
U19 Level 4
  • U.S. Citizenship or Residency (as reflected by the address in player’s profile)

Junior Points Based Rankings Overview

Junior rankings are points based. Players earn points by participating in US Squash accredited junior tournaments. The number of points earned is based on the level of tournament (Gold, Silver, Bronze), the number of players a division, and a players’ finishing position at that tournament. After playing in 3+ tournaments, players will receive a point average, which is an average of the top 4 points earning tournaments played within the past 11-months. Each players’ ranking reflects his or her point average compared to the point averages of all other players in his or her age group.

In order to receive a junior national ranking, players must meet the following criteria:

  • US Squash Membership
  • Passed Age-Specific Online Referee Exam
Age Group Exam Required
