QUALIFIERS | Agencies are encouraged to conduct their own qualifying series or one time event to determine the players that will compete at the state level but this is not a requirement. Agencies may alternatively select their team from existing programs. Teams can consist of up to 10 players used across the four games. Players can use one entry per game.

[Note: $100 agency registration fee covers all 10 players. There are not separate fees for each game. The "team" you send to the state championship consists of the players you put forward in each game's sub teams.]
