The points based junior tournament system is currently suspended and an interim ratings based system is in place.
The national junior system is designed as a pyramid structure in which a specific number of accredited tournaments are allocated to each region annually. Due to the pyramid structure, which features increasing tournament points at higher level tournaments, maintaining the specified ratio of tournaments at each level within each region is important for the proper functioning of the junior national rankings.
US Squash fully manages the process for accrediting junior tournaments in order to guarantee the optimal ratio of tournaments are accredited while aiming to create a coordinated calendar which minimizes conflicts between nearby facilities and spreads tournaments across different tournament directors.
US Squash is committed to working closely with tournament directors in support of providing players and their families the best possible experience at junior tournaments. In service of this, all tournament directors must fulfill a series of steps in order to be listed as a Trained Tournament Director. Included will be educational materials on US Squash junior rules and regulations, information on the support US Squash will provide to help make your tournament successful, and a Tournament Director Code of Conduct.

During the interim phase of a ratings based tournament system, tournament directors may add events to the calendar subject to the local calendar of events. There is no regional allocation or formal accreditation period at this time.
