10 & under Tennis will work on a recreational level faster than that of a Elite Tournament Training level.
Teaching my Baby = 4YO Girl. She is Hitting a regular ball over the net with a Dora 19in Racquet.
I let her hit as much as possible. When she goes to her first Tournament match she will be in that 10 & under Group using quick start. But, she will have a greater advantage over other kids because she will be hitting regular ball earlier. Her Learning Curve will be better than the other kids in her age that strictly use quick start.
Quick start is a tool to build confidence & to get younger kids starting earlier.
So the answer is Yes/NO.
My Reason is....
If coaching doesn't get any better in the US it really doesn't matter what the kids are using. they will still lack the ability to perform. Only the naturally talented players will make it.

I have multiple way. more than 4 ways to show how to hit pro level forehands ETC ETC so on and forth. waving my own flag.....
