How To Qualify

APA members may compete on a Local Qualifier Board consisting of four to eight members with one player advancing on to the regional competition. The local entry fee for this competition starts at $15, and there is no limit on qualifying attempts. Members may also choose to participate on a much larger board, called a SPLASH which can host up to 16 players competing in a double elimination format where a competitor must win three (3) matches before they lose two (2). On this particular board, five (5) participants out of sixteen (16) advances. This cost on a splash board usually runs around $40.00. At the local level, these boards are open to players of all skill levels
