USAWP South East Zone Qualifier

2018 Junior Olympic Qualification


For any team wishing to compete at the 2018 National JOs,  a qualification tournament must be held to decide seeding. It is important that you realize there are more than just the Championships going on that week. There is a Classic division and an Invitational division for boys and a Classic for girls. This means you can still go out and compete at a very high level if you don’t qualify for the Championship division . We allocate the teams based on their ranking in the qualifier. If you intend to play at JO’s you must compete in the qualifier.  If you are wanting to play in NJO please fill out this intent to play so we can get an idea of who will be playing in the JO Qualifier.
