This year, the two Junior Amateur Divisions at the Expo (the 17 & under and the 12 & under) will both be qualifiers for the 2013 BEF Junior National 9-Ball Championships. The top three finishers from each division, including the highest finishing girl, will all earn spots to Junior Nationals. Currently, the 17 & under division is filled with a full field of 64 players but there are still spots available in the 12 & under division. There is no entry fee to participate and juniors can win trophies and prize money. The juniors events are held Saturday and Sunday, April 6-7.
