Qualifying for National Team Championships
Beginning at the Local Level, teams compete weekly with other area teams comprising a division (6-16 teams). There are three sessions of play every year, Summer, Fall and Spring. When each session has been completed, a playoff is held to determine which team will advance to the Local Team Championship, which is held after the conclusion of the Spring Session. Teams that win at the Local Team Championship qualify to compete in the National Team Championship at the Riviera Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. Using The Equalizer® handicap system allows players with different playing abilities to compete on an equal basis. Everyone can play, anyone can win!
*Includes National Team Championships, Preregistered events, and MinIMania payouts
