In 1969, the National Junior Tennis League was created as a way to gain and hold the attention of young people, with the hope of teaching them the importance of character, getting an education and becoming productive citizens.

 

Today, the now-named National Junior Tennis and Learning network features nearly 300 nonprofit youth development organizations that offer free or low-cost tennis and education programming to about 180,000 under-resourced youth each year.

 

NJTL is supported by the USTA Foundation, the national charitable organization of the USTA. The work done by its member chapters includes after-school tutoring that focuses on academic enrichment, a life-skills curriculum and, of course, tennis.

 

In 2019, the USTA Foundation is celebrating 50 Years of NJTLs.

What are the benfits of becomming an NJTL chapter and what is the Star Level System?

 

The Star Level System simple five-tier system is designed to enable chapters to perform at a higher level. Standardization can help each NJTL understand proven practices for nonprofit and youth organizations. The system can further define their internal capabilities as an organization, explore ways to improve and ultimately, deliver tennis and education programming that best meets the specific needs of the community/communities they serve.

 

Each Star Level has distinct requriements to meet to gain status as well as differnt benefits afforded each chapter based on Star Level achievement.
