1: The 66% rule (2:1 win loss ratio).
In order to determine which tournament category a player should play, and keeping in mind player mental health (motivation, confidence) a 66%-win rate should be targeted. Once regularly achieved a player is ready to progress to a higher tournament category/age group. In order to be accurate in our match recordings it is requested that players/parents send through tournament match results to Todd. These results must have the opponent’s name, score and tournament round. The 66% rule is reviewed on a quarterly monthly basis and will be used to determine upcoming tournament schedules.
2: Tournament Frequency.
Developing a high-performance athlete requires a balance of skill development and competitive development. As such we have adopted the following guidelines for our players regarding the number of tournaments a player should participate in over a 12-month period. This is based on the assumption that the 66% rule is followed, therefore ensuring the player is getting the required number of matches over a year.
Under 12 players 12 tournaments per year.
Under 14 players 14 tournaments per year.
Under 16 players 16 tournaments per year.
Under 18 players 18 tournaments per year.
Mens/Womens players 20 – 24 tournaments per year.
3: Tournament level
Players should participate in their correct age group. This will ensure appropriate competition level and a positive competitive experience. If a player is ranked in the Top 100 in their age group only then can they participate in the age group above. If special circumstances where to present itself, a case-by-case decision can be taken collectively by Todd/parents.
A tournament calendar will be produced every 2 months. With the current Covid situation, planning is challenging and AITA will continue to add/remove tournaments based on the Covid situation in India. Player tournament schedule will be reviewed every two months with appropriate changes occurring (a player may be injured; a player may perform exceedingly well etc). Players are encouraged to follow the tournament schedule as per academy coach’s advice however if a player is unable to play the allotted tournament and wish to play a different event to compensate, please contact Todd at firstname.lastname@example.org
