Captains' Responsibilities
Dear captain of a USA League Tennis team (Adult, Mixed, Senior or Super Senior):

The following information needs to be read carefully. It outlines duties as a captain, contains information needed to start a team, and information with procedures regarding important league rules and policies. Please be aware that there will be no captains’ meetings again this year as everything will be done by the Internet, mail and/or phone.

The basic steps to enter and have a team compete in any of the “USA League Tennis” Leagues sponsored by the USTA is as follows:

  1. Properly fill out and mail in the registration form, which is stapled on the outside of the captain’s registration packet, as soon as possible;
  2. After mailing in the registration form, wait to receive the Internet Team Registration Number;
  3. Give the Internet Team Registration Number to all team members so they may register for the team on the Internet by the registration deadline;
  4. Wait for the season match schedule to arrive by mail;
  5. Any questions – call Tony Stephens at 298-8228.
