Nationals Declarations

Step 1: Check Qualifiers List - GIRLS/BOYS

On the Qualifiers List, all names highlighted in GREEN have qualified for nationals as part of a team.  All names listed that are not highlighted are not currently qualified, but will be offered a spot on the team in the order they appear if anyone qualified declines their spot at nationals.  Names listed with NO under Declaration are either ineligible or have turned down their spot.

STEP 2: Declare Yes or No for Nationals - CLICK HERE

Enter your name and yes or no declaring your plans to attend nationals.  As everyone declares, we will update the qualifiers list (may have a couple hours delay in updating once you declare).  If you are someone on the waitlist, you can get an idea of your chances of getting bumped up as people in front of you declare.  If you have multiple children, fill out the declaration for each of them.
