Apply to any AJGA events you are interested in, but be realistic if you have not yet earned any PBE status. Use the "entry point" events conducted by the AJGA to start earning PBE.
Follow these guidelines:
Apply to AJGA Preview Series tournaments before each application deadline – members who have never played in an AJGA tournament are the priority group for these tournament spots (high school seniors, juniors, sophomores, freshmen, etc. in that order receive priority for tournament spots).
Apply to AJGA Qualifier Series Qualifiers during each event’s application window – members who are not already in the associated Open or AJGA Junior All-Star Series tournament are the priority group for these playing spots.
Members who have already earned Performance Based Entry status should target the following tournaments (others should apply, but be realistic about acceptance):
If you are under 16, apply to AJGA Junior All-Star Series tournaments before each application deadline – applicants who have earned the highest number of Performance Stars will gain entry.
Apply to Open tournaments before each application deadline - applicants who have earned the highest number of Performance Stars will gain entry.
If you are not accepted into the Open or AJGA Junior All-Star Series tournament, apply to its associated AJGA Qualifier Series Qualifier during the application window to compete for a spot in the tournament field.
