Finalists in the Boys & Girls Team Qualifying divisions are as follows: Esprit Cup divisions will include 10 & Under, 12 & Under, and 14 & Under, while World Cup divisions will be comprised of 16 & Under, 18 & Under, and 21 & Under.

Team USA Qualifying divisions (Esprit Cup and World Cup) will follow the new IRF “Rally Scoring” rules.Please see the announcement here IRF ANNOUNCEMENT.

Olympic Format with 4 flights in each age group, Gold, Blue, Red & White, thus ensuring that a player typically has a minimum of 3 matches per division and eventually plays against similarly skilled players during the event. In some situations, a bye will count as a match. 

All of the Team USA Qualifying divisions will use the new IRF adopted scoring system, often referred to as "rally scoring." With rally scoring, a point is earned at the end of each rally by the winner of the rally, regardless of whether the winner of the rally is the server or the receiver. 

Clarification on Rally Scoring for Divisions:

• TEAM USA Gold Divisions ONLY
• 3 out of 5 games
• Rally Scoring to 11 – win by one point
• 5th game is won by two points

*Dropping out of Gold Division reverts back to standard USA Racquetball scoring*

Fun for everyone! National Junior Championships is a perfect chance to get away with your family and enjoy the exuberant atmosphere of watching our young players bloom. Enjoy the camaraderie and lifelong sporting Friendships.

Please remember when making your travel plans that we plan to start to play on Wednesday at 9:00 am and end Sunday at 5:00 pm depending on your division and the number of entries.
