Caribbean 13 & Under Development Championships
The Caribbean Development Championships caters to 19 nations across the region from Aruba to the US Virgin Islands. The competition is run on a round robin basis for the first two days prior to a main event. The draw progresses with each player competing every day on a feed-in placement system.
At the end of the competition the top nation, based on points awarded for their best three positions in singles and one best doubles result from their representative players, are awarded a trophy. The top performing players are then offered follow-up development assistance and possible participation in a touring team to South America in January.
Previous participants include Jean-Julien Rojer, who has to date reached a career high World no.13 on the ATP doubles circuit.
Central American 13 & Under Development Championships
The 2012 Central American 13 & Under Development Championships were dominated by Guatemala who took victory in both singles events hosted by the El Salvador Tennis Federation. Karla Michelle Cordero came out victorious in the girl's event by defeating Penelope Abreu from Dominican Republic, while Kevin Hernandez won the boys event by defeating Diego Chavarria of Costa Rica.
After the daily matches all the teams met to participate in an educational forum where participating coaches presented the players with information on different topics: Rituals, The Evolution of Tennis and Duties and Rights. Players played one singles match and one or two doubles matches a day, every day.
