2009 USA BADMINTONJUNIOR INTERNATIONAL TRIALS (JIT)
Sponsored by Affinity Badminton Club, San Carlos, California
Saturday, February 14 – Monday, February 16, 2009
Tournament Director: Chris Lawrence Affinity Manager: Eva Huang
The 2009 JIT results will determine the junior athletes who will represent the United States in the
Pan American Junior Championship (August 17-
23 , in San Juan-Puerto Rico) and BWF World Junior Championship (TBD) for Team and Individual events. The Junior Pan Am Team can be up
to 4 boys and 4 girls. The Junior Worlds Team can be up to 5 boys and 5 girls. The two Teams may contain different athletes. Junior Pan Am
Individual events will be held for U19, U17, U15, U13, and U11 (depending on number of entries), Consolation may or may not be included. Junior
Worlds Individual is for U19 only, no Consolation. The U.S. may enter up to 4 Singles, 2 Doubles pairs, and 4 Mixed Double pairs in each Individual
event. Athletes desiring to compete in an Individual event(s) in any age group must submit a JIT entry form including
those events, even if not competing for the Team(s). Please note: There is no USAB funding designated for either International event.
The following criteria will be used in the selection procedure:
1 The winners of GS, BS, GD, BD, and XD from JIT are selected first.
2 Doubles pairs are selected together. If one athlete of a winning Doubles pair is unable to compete the other athlete is consequently not
selected (but may be selected by step 4 below)
3 If for either boy or girl the above does not yield enough athletes, the Singles runner-up at JIT is selected next.
If for either boy or girl the above does not yield enough athletes, the next athlete(s) is(are) selected in order of JIT scoring total across all
three events – Singles, Doubles, and Mixed Doubles – using the Junior National Team scoring:
Each 1st Place = 30 points Each 5th Place = 3 points
Each 2nd Place = 15 points Each 6th Place = 2 points
Each 3rd Place = 7.5 points Each 7th or 8th Place = 1 point
Each 4th Place = 5 points
4 In the event of a scoring tie with fewer spots available than tied athletes a coin toss(es) will select.
5 Any remaining Team spots after all JIT results are exhausted will not be filled.
6 The Team may be different for Pan Am and World Junior Championships.
7 Singles events will be Pool Play per USA Badminton regulations. Doubles events will be Pool Play unless the number of entries is too
large in which case they will be Elimination. USAB’s pool play rules require all of an athlete’s pool matches to be completed or none count
8 The JIT results will be used to select the Team and U19 athletes for both events above, except that Team members will have priority for
Individual events. Higher priorities will also be given to JIT individual entries in other age groups (i.e. U17 and younger).
9 The above criteria are to select the Team athletes. U19 Individual athletes are selected by the JIT U19 event results.
