Players May only sign up for one qualifier (Exception: Last Chance Qualifier).  Waitlists may be capped.


Qualifying: A total of 288 players will advance to the finals. The number of qualifying spots at each site will be determined by percentage, each field's percentage will be the same.

Alternate Information:  

Two alternates will be determined from each qualifying location.  Alternate order will be determined by 1) the playoff for the final spot, or 2) a playoff for the two alternate positions. If the alternates are not present for the playoff they will be determined by lot. 

How alternates will advance to the Championship:
