Colorado State MOJO format has yet to be determined.
ITA Summer Masters feed in through round of 16’s.

RMTC Tournament Philosophy
At RMTC, we believe in giving all players, regardless of level, a chance to play the same amount of tennis regardless of results. In normal formats, tournaments are set up such that players who succeed in early rounds receive opportunities to play more matches and acquire more experience. Players who don’t advance are not given this opportunity. This then quickly widens the gap in competitive skill between the players who get more matchplay opportunities and players who don’t. Ultimately, the more experi- enced players work themselves out of local competi- tion much more quickly due to this gap. At RMTC, we make it possible for less experienced players to receive matchplay opportunities at the same rate as players who advance in main draw competition. Our goal is ultimately to afford each player that enters our tournaments the same amount of competitive experiences.
When players are exposed to the proper environ- ment and given the opportunity to put forth effort, competitive sports provide profound life-skills ben- efits. These benefits include physical, mental (perse- verance, determination, coping skills, etc) and social (cooperation, teamwork, friendships) development. Not only is competition fantastic for children and adults, but it is also tremendously fun!
