Please bring as many entries as your team is allotted to ensure the most qualifiers possible. Because of lower entry numbers, the NSDA has adjusted the qualification numbers. Because we are a Level 2 District, for this year only, we automatically qualify 3 entries in each event if we have a minimum of 10. This can be the most exciting of tournaments because we never know who will qualify. I have personally qualified freshmen and novices in almost all of the events. Coaches, we have an obligation to keep the dream alive. Please never tell them, "It isn't worth going, because you won't qualify."
