APA Team Captains Championship Qualifier
Saturday May 19, 2018

$100/team entry fee due by May 11, 2018
A maximum of 5 players allowed on roster
Participants must be the TEAM CAPTAIN of a 2017 Fall Session AND a 2018 Spring Session OCAPA standard 8-Ball, standard 9-Ball or Ladies 8-Ball team

Teams may choose any 3 of the 5 members to participate in each match
The total of the skill levels of the 3 players fielded in any team match cannot exceed 15
A player's highest skill level between formats (8-Ball & 9-Ball) must be used towards the 15-Rule with the exception that 9-Ball skill level 8/9's will count as a 7 in this tournament
Only one player of a skill level 6 or higher may play in any given match
Players may only participate on one team
One time out per player per game will be allowed
Alternate between 8-Ball and 9-Ball racks, starting with 8-Ball
Team Captains flip a coin to decide who must declare their three players for the match. Winner of the flip has the choice of declaring first or having the opposing Team Captain choose first. The Captains will list their players in ascending order (lowest to highest). That list determines the player rotation and is locked for the match. Once both teams in a match have declared their players, the players cannot be changed unless the 15-Rule is in jeopardy.
Order of play will be lowest skill level to highest
Players lag to see who wins the first break
Once the first two players have completed their rack of 8-Ball, the second two players in the rotation will play a rack of 9-Ball. Upon that rack's completion, the next two players in the rotation will play a rack of 8-Ball. Once set, the player rotation continues until a team reaches the required points nevessary to win the match.
The winning team breaks with the next player in rotation after each rack
Each individual rack is worth one team point
Maximum field is 32 entires
100% payback of entry fees plus $400 will be added by the OCAPA to pay for the entries ($200 per team) into the Vegas event for the top two finishing teams
