The Junior Development Pathway for the Ottawa Region

Navigating a development pathway and competitive structure of any sport can be daunting. The Junior Tennis Committee has drafted a development pathway specific to our region, to provide you with the information you and your junior need to make informed decisions on their development in tennis.

Here are some links for reference on the various event types available in our region:

Rogers Rookie Tour – U8-U18

U9 & U10 Circuit

Competitive – U12-U18
