Spring Star Ratings Period Starts This Week
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.

Click here to get started linking your account. And please submit all corrections to Julie Wrege. Make sure all corrections to past results are submitted by February 15, 2017.

 

Cutoffs for Ratings

The cutoffs for each rating level are shown below by graduation year and gender:

Class Gender Blue Chip 5-Star 4-Star 3-Star  2-Star 
2017M2575200400819
2017F2575200400644
2018M2575200400929
2018F2575200400762
2019M2575200400917
2019F2575200400776
2020M2575200400957
2020F2575200400809
2021M2575200400895
2021F2575200400786
2022M2575200400781
2022F2575200400682
2023M2575200400662
2023F2575200400620
 

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.

Virginia Wins ITA National Indoor Team Title
