First-Round National Invitations

A first-round invitation to register for the Collegiate National Championships will be extended to the highest ranked competitors from each Collegiate Regional Championship where a “quota” for the first-round invitations shall be determined from average participation from prior seasons.  The invitation quota for each Collegiate Region is based on the following:

a. If there is an average of one hundred (100) or more competitors over the prior two seasons in a Collegiate Regional Championship, the twenty (20) highest ranked competitors from that Region, of each gender and in each discipline, shall receive a first-round invitation to the Collegiate National Championship. 

b. If there is an average of between fifty (50) and ninety-nine (99) competitors over the prior two seasons in a Collegiate Regional Championship, the ten (10) highest ranked competitors from that Region, of each gender and in each discipline, shall receive a first-round invitation to the Collegiate National Championship. 

c. If there are an average of less than fifty (50) competitors over the prior two seasons in a Collegiate Regional Championship, or if a Collegiate Regional Championship is being hosted for the first time in a specific Region, the five (5) highest ranked competitors from that Region, of each gender and in each discipline, shall receive a first-round invitation to the Collegiate National Championship.

*Note: If no Collegiate Regional is hosted in a specific Region, first-round registration to the Collegiate National Championship shall be opened on a first-come-first-served-basis to up to fifteen (15) Collegiate members, of each gender, from that Region who have competed in one (1) local competition as a Collegiate member.
