I'll yield a little if we're talking about a pro prospect.

But I'm sticking to my guns if we're talking about a generally athletic 10 yr old.

If tourney matches are fun, fine. Are they needed? I think not. Match play can be incorporated into training outside the tournament environment for 10 yr olds.
