Spring Star Ratings Period Starts This Week
by Dallas Oliver, 9 January 2017
|Share: || || |
One of the most popular features at TennisRecruiting.net is its Star Ratings - sometimes known as "The Stars". These ratings are basically coarse rankings, where the highest-ranked players are tabbed as Blue Chips, the next group is the Five Stars, and so on.
These ratings are updated twice per year in the Fall and Spring. Our next update to the Star Ratings - the Spring Star Ratings - is scheduled to come out in early March.
Ratings Period Dates
These ratings are based on players' rankings on the Class Rankings (boys, girls).
The Spring Star Ratings are based on players' highest rankings during the next eight weeks - from the week of January 9 to the week of February 27, 2017. You can see the relationship of ranking to rating on our Star Ratings FAQ.
What does this mean for players and parents? The rankings - and hence the ratings - are only as accurate as the player records. We ask players and parents to review their player records to ensure accurate ratings.
Access to player records is normally a Recruiting Advantage feature at the website. But for the next eight weeks, complete player records are available to all players and parents who link their accounts to their profiles.
Note that no payment is required - it is free to link your account to your profile. All you have to do is answer a few brief security questions to verify your identity.

Note: When checking your player record, there are some questions about how defaults, withdrawals, and walkovers are handled. A default, withdrawal, or walkover where there is no score should be recorded on the player record with an asterisk (*) attached. This means that these matches do not count in the TennisRecruiting.net ranking system. If you see a "Def," a "Wd," or a "Wo" recorded on your record and there is not an asterisk attached, this is a mistake. If a match has started and retirement (Ret) or default (Def) is affixed to the score, then these matches do count for ranking - except when it a 15-0 retirement required by the section to avoid penalty points.
