Players from ACS-sanctioned Junior leagues are qualified to compete in all divisions except adult 8-ball singles divisions. Non-league junior-aged amateur players may pay a $25 ACS Sanctioned Player (non-league) membership and compete in the junior 8-ball singles and the adult 9-ball singles divisions.

In addition to the Championships, the ACS will be hosting the ESPN-televised “World Summit of Pool” during the week and coordinating with the top players of the US Professional Poolplayers Association (UPA) and Dragon Promotions to host a “Challenge of the Pros” on Tuesday evening, June 12, in which any player can challenge his or her favorite player(s) to benefit the Billiard Education Foundation (BEF).

Top players in ACS-sanctioned junior leagues are also eligible to compete in the 2007 BEF Junior National 9-Ball Championships in July as well. Be aware that BEF places some limits on the number of players an ACS junior league can send, and any players selected to compete in the BEF Junior Nationals from your league must also pay a BEF junior membership.
