Place in the top five in your region OR petition.

You have to qualify from a regional contest to compete. This means getting top 5. Not too sure on the logistics on that part. Even if you aren’t qualified to compete, you can petition to get a spot in prelims (though I’m not sure what goes into that)

does it HAVE to be ur own regionals?

thx

No, each Regional qualifies players to Nationals as follows:

1st place in region: Seeded to National Final

2nd - 5th in region: Qualified to National Semi-Final
1st - 5th overall: Qualified to National Semi-Final

The placings may overlap so 5-10 players qualify for Nationals at each Regional.

That’s a state contest, not a regional.


(angryskills) #10

did u go to Texas state?


#11

Yeah I got second in open I was the guy who threw 4a

Being from Texas, I’d insert a way-too-proud Texas joke here if I could think of one.

Because if Texas were a region there would be to many seeded players
