Area Qualifiers & Championships

We compete in several area qualifier events throughout the year and will enter as many teams as we have people to fill them. We do ask that members play an active role in club life if they would like to be part of the teams including attending team training sessions where possible. Before putting your name forward for any Area Qualifier, you must ensure that you will be available for both the Qualifier and the Championship – this is particularly important for team events so that you don’t let teammates down.
