Each summer, juniors from around the USTA/Midwest Section represent their district in an exciting team competition.  The USTA/Midwest Section is one of the only sections throughout the USTA that hosts a team competition for boys & girls in the 12s, 14s, and 18-and-under age divisions. Match play consists of a round-robin format throughout the weekend and concludes with the top teams advancing to the championship match. Players are invited to play by their Districts based on their Midwest ranking, tournament play, character, and sportsmanship.

The Boys' & Girls' 18 Team Cup is comprised of players who were invited by the Junior Tennis Pathway Group from the CDTA Super Excellence Program.  (The girls 18 Cup Team is called the Marian Wood Baird Cup.)

The BG14 and BG12 Cup Teams are chosen by our Junior Tennis Pathway Group based on Midwest ranking, tournament play, character and sportsmanship.  The teams are comprised of 4 boys and 4 girls each, playing a round robin team format against other District teams.

In early May, the Junior Tennis Pathway Group will send out inquiry letters to the top players on the Midwest Points List in the 14 and 12 age groups, asking if they wish to be considered.  The District pays the team entry fee and supplies a coach, but the parents are responsible for transportation, housing and any other expenses.
