CSGA Tournament Selection Criteria

Most CSGA tournaments have a predetermined size of field.  The popularity of a number of CSGA events, in particular team events, has resulted in many events being oversubscribed.  This policy addresses the criteria the CSGA will employ when oversubscription occurs.

Past Performance:  Past individual wins and high tournament finishes in recent years and position on the prior year’s Player of the Year Point System will be considered for both individual and team events as these players have proven that their participation increases the level of competition.  Individuals who have performed admirably in past competitions will be given greater consideration for selection. 

Tournament Participation:  Individuals who frequently participate in CSGA competitions will be given greater consideration for selection than individuals who do not often play in events.

Timeliness of Application:  A timely application is guaranteed consideration for selection into an oversubscribed field; however, an application received within the specified time frame does not automatically admit an individual into the field.  While the time and date an application is received is not a primary consideration, it may be used as the selection criterion when two otherwise comparable applications are being considered.
