The USTA has made important changes to the way in which online accounts are established and maintained for adults and for children. These changes are in accordance with the laws surrounding online accounts for children; will keep your information secure based on industry best practices of using email address to login; and, once the accounts are established and linked, will also make it easier for you to navigate and complete transactions across all USTA digital properties.

In order to register children under the age of 14 for a USTA program or event, the parent and child must have accounts that are linked to each other. If either the parent and/or child already has an account with the USTA, it is very important to continue use of the same USTA account number, in order to maintain previous play history. Children age 14-18 do not need to be linked to their parent's account, but need to have their own login established. A parent can maintain control of their 14-18 year old child's account by following the same process for children under age 14. 

If at any point in this process you need assistance, please check our FAQ page for more information, or contact the Member Services Department at 1-800-990-8782 or memberservices@usta.com for assistance. Due to the introduction of these changes, wait times on the phone has been longer than usual, so we recommend that you leave enough time to complete these transactions prior to the end of the registration period for your child's program or event. We apologize for any challenges along the way. This was not an easy change but it is very important.
