NorthEast Qualifier

Clubs and Teams - 2022 Divisions and Bids

2022 Divisions and Bids

Note:

All teams must be registered on AES, paid in full and meet the hotel requirements before the deadline to be accepted into the Northeast Qualifier.  Please note that divisions may fill prior to the deadline. 

As Philadelphia and the PACC hopefully work toward increasing the threshold on gatherings, we are optimistically planning to accept as many teams as possible for the 2022 Northeast Qualifier.  However,  due to the uncertainty, we reserve the right to change the max numbers of teams in each division.  If necessary, we also reserve the right to request teams to switch divisions due to limitations such as space restrictions,  etc.

Open Divisions

The goal of the Open divisions at the JNC is to identify the best team in the country through rigorous competition in a particular age classification from among the top 32 teams. The Open divisions of the Qualifiers are designed to identify and select those top 32 teams. Teams have only one avenue to gain entry into an Open division of the JNC—participate in an Open division at a Qualifier and either earn a bid at the Qualifier or perform well enough to earn an at-large bid.

Teams have three avenues to earn a bid for a GJNC Club division (National, USA, Liberty or American):

  • Earn a bid at a NQ (USA, Liberty, American); or
  • Earn a bid through their region's qualifying process (National or American); or
  • Earn a bid from their region through the Re-allocation process. 

 

Bids

Bids will be offered in accordance with the Qualifier Manual Specifications. Space is planned to accommodate the maximum number of teams to award all possible bids.

Minimum: Minimum team count to reach the number of bids listed in the "Bids" column.  If number is NOT reached, the bid count will likely have to be reduced.

Projected Maxium: Max teams estimated that can be accepted, given facility space limitations.  These may be adjusted up/down as we get closer to the entry deadline.
