Spring Star Ratings Period Begins
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 mid-March.

 

Ratings Period Dates

These ratings are based on players' rankings on the Class Rankings (boys, girls).

The Spring Star Ratings will be based on players' highest rankings during the first eight full weeks of the year - from the week of January 4 to the week of February 22, 2021. You can see the relationship of ranking to rating in our Star Ratings FAQ.

 

Update Your Record

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 complete 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 10, 2021.

 

Cutoffs for Ratings

The official cutoffs for each rating level will be published here in this article in early February. Read the second (++) and fourth (++++) footnotes of the Star Ratings FAQ to understand how these cutoffs will be determined.

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.
