Qualifying age groups for this event will be 7U – 12U with upper and lower divisions to enter. Currently, qualifiers are scheduled to be held in Cleveland, Nashville, Kingsport, TN and Dalton, GA with the Championships in July in Cleveland, TN. At-Large bids could be awarded if have teams who qualified in multiple events or if a qualifying team does not register by deadline to participate in the Championship. Any At-Large bids awarded will be selected from teams who participated in a qualifying event.
