Exceptional sportsmanship is expected of all our tournament players, as well as parents and coaches on the sidelines.

We remind PARENTS to set the example for junior players by creating a positive and encouraging environment. We ask COACHES to stress the importance of sportsmanship as highly as the development of strokes and strategy. And we empower PLAYERS to accept victory and defeat with equal grace and dignity, while treating opponents with fairness and courtesy.

The tournament will feature roaming umpires who will oversee the competition throughout the day. 

Players are encouraged to engage in good sportsmanship when determining calls on the court, without official intervention.

Should the need arise, players may request an umpire to oversee their court if discrepancies persist. This request must be made by the player(s) on the court. Parents and coaches may not request umpires to the court. 

For players advancing to the second weekend, a block of rooms will be reserved at the Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa. We are pleased to announce that USTA SoCal will cover $100 of your room night at the Omni for Saturday night only. The player will be responsible for $89 plus tax and resort fee.
