At-Large Guidelines

Qualification and Entry Procedures

(Updated in 2006 and in effect)

1. Cap the total number of entries per school at the AFA-NIET at 66.

2. Revise the at-large qualification system as follows:

2 to 4 entries = 1st Place Counts

5 to 8 entries = 2nd Place Counts

9 to 12 entries = 3rd Place Counts

13-16 entries = 4th Place Counts

17-20 entries = 5th Place Counts

Over 20 entries = 6th Place Counts

Note: Three legs (placings) that add up to 8 or less are still required (1,1,1; 1,2,3; 4,2,1; 5,2,1, etc.) .

If you have any questions about these changes please contact your District Chair, Peter Pober, Chair of the NIET Committee, or Larry Schnoor, National Tournament Director.
