- More experienced players who have competed in at least three to five 8 and Under/U10 Rogers Rookie Tour Events.
- Competitors who are looking to enhance their competitive experience and meet the Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) competitive criteria.

Late Withdrawal and Failure to Complete Required Tournament Events (LW/FC) penalties will be enforced.
Once a player receives a total of 3 LW/FC Points within a 12 month period, he/she will be suspended for ONE month without being able to compete in any Canadian event (Provincial (all levels of tournaments including Future Stars and Team Tennis), National, ITF domestic) within that period. The period begins the day following the completion of the tournament in which the third LW/FC Point was assessed.

At Tennis BC our goal is to ensure that tennis parents and coaches are educated on how to support their child and others during tournament play. Please find some helpful pointers listed below:
- All Future Stars tournaments will open registration 4 weeks before tournament date.
- Review all pertinent details from the tournament website (start time, location, draw) 2 to 3 days prior to the events.
- Ensure that your child is present and checks in at the tournament desk 15 min before the scheduled match.
- Parents are encouraged to cheer and clap for good shots by BOTH players or a long rally once the point is over. It is however considered extremely unsportsmanlike to cheer for doubles faults or errors. Correct cheering: Good shot. Let’s go. Good effort. Well done. That’s ok (if they miss a shot.)
- No coaching is allowed. Do not communicate, visually or verbally while your child is playing a match. Inappropriate comments: Move your feet, Focus, Use your head, remember what we talked about – these are considered coaching and your child could receive penalties for this.
- No outside officiating is allowed. This includes line calls and scoring. It is the responsibility of the players and this is the skill that players should learn. Any score disputes on court should be referred to the on-site staff.
Parents are asked not to make any judgement of line call from where you sit. The window or the curtain, as well as the angle may give you a different vision of where the ball lands. The line judges who are sitting right at the line make error sometimes and so do the young players. They are learning. It is all about education.
- Parents are not to communicate with their children during a match. Should they need to pass a water bottle or any other items, they must do so through the on-site staff/official.
- While spectators are allowed on court in some clubs, all movement should be minimized in order not to disrupt the match. Should movement be necessary, we ask parents to do it after a point is finished and do it quickly – never between first and second serve.
