AJGA Unveils New Srixon Qualifier Series Entry Criteria

For the first time, the AJGA will abandon its online ‘first-come, first-served’ policy for filling its Srixon Qualifier fields. In 2007, players who wish to gain entry into Srixon Qualifiers will no longer be at the mercy of their Internet Service Provider, rather, they will apply to a qualifier during a designated window and be selected using a set criteria.

The rationale for this change is twofold. The first-come, first-served method became entirely too stressful for members and their parents. The AJGA felt that Internet connection speed should not determine one’s likelihood of gaining entry into a Srixon Qualifier.

Second, the AJGA crafted the criteria to help mold the Srixon Qualifiers Series back into what it was originally designed for: giving local players a chance to participate in a national event.

Additionally, the new policy gives an added advantage to rising seniors looking to showcase their skills for college coaches during this important recruiting time.

To begin learning about the AJGA’s new policy for filling Srixon Qualifier fields, read below.

For a complete list of qualifier application release dates, check back to ajga.org later this week!

Srixon Qualifier Series Entry Criteria

Application Process: AJGA members must apply for a qualifier during the application window which begins the Friday after the tournament application deadline at 3 pm ET and runs through Monday, 12 pm ET. The order applications are received has no affect on the qualifier field, however players must apply within this window to be considered. Players who apply after this point will be placed on an alternate list, after those who applied during the application window, in the order they are received. Space permitting, non-members may apply one week following the Qualifier release to AJGA members.

The first 50 percent of the field will be filled as follows:

Step 1: Rising seniors (2008 grads) from the state of the qualifier who have yet to earn entry into a tournament or qualifier during the current season

Step 2: Rising seniors (2008 grads) from a bordering state of the qualifier who have yet to earn entry into a tournament or qualifier during the current season

Step 3: All other rising seniors (2008 grads) who have yet to earn entry into a tournament or qualifier during the current season

Step 4: All other rising seniors

The next 40 percent of the field will be filled as follows:

Step 5: Non rising seniors from the state or bordering state of the qualifier who have yet to earn entry into a tournament or qualifier during the current season

Step 6: All other non rising seniors who have yet to earn entry into a tournament or qualifier during the current season

Step 7: All other non rising seniors

The final 10 percent of the field, as well as the alternate list, will be filled as follows:

Step 8: Random draw

Ties at any step will be broken by:

            1) Performance Based Entry status
            2) Location
                      a. Players from the state of the Qualifier
                      b. Players from a bordering state of the Qualifier
            3) Random draw

Notes:

  • If there are not enough players to fill a designated step, the spots will carry over to the next step of the criteria.
  • For tiebreaker purposes, a player’s Performance Based Entry status is frozen at the start of the Qualifier application window for that week.
  • Qualifier field sizes are typically 100 players (80 boys, 20 girls).
  • Final Qualifier fields and alternate lists will be posted on Tuesday at 5 pm ET following the release of the application.
