Welcome to the 2019 SCA World Championship!
How do you qualify?
A) The winner of every SCA sanctioned event will be invited to the SCA Championship. (If the winner of the event is not a member at the time of their win, they will have until the following Monday at 8am to become a member. If they do not become a member, the invitation will roll down to the highest placing member, no lower than 10th place.) Should the winner already be qualified, the next team at the cookoff will get the invitation. If there are no teams eligible for the invite then the invite will become an “At Large Bid”.
B) The top ten in the 2019 Ace Hardware Points Chase that are not already qualified with a win on September 5th, will get an invitation to the SCA Championship. (30 days prior to championship allowing teams to make travel plans)
C) The top ten in SCA Europe and SCA Australia points chase that are not already qualified with a win on August 1st, will get an invitation to the SCA Championship. (60 days prior to championship allowing teams to make travel plans)
D) On September 5th the “At Large Bids” will be awarded to the next people in the points chase to replace teams.
E) All event after the dates above are still qualifiers for the 2019 SCA World Championship. The hard dates are to give teams that might get at large bids the time to make travel plans.
