POINT SYSTEM GUIDELINES
Pool Ranking Point System
A Ranking Points list will be maintained representing the total points each member has earned from participation in the main draw of CSNS Ranking Events.
All players, regardless of classification or rating, will be maintained on one list.
Points based on order of finish in Ranking Events will be awarded as follows:
100 pts - 1st
90 pts - 2nd
80 pts - 3rd
70 pts - 4th
60 pts - 5th-6th
50 pts - 7th-8th
40 pts - 9th-12th
30 pts - 13th-16th
20 pts - 17th-24th
15 pts - 25th-32nd
10 pts - 33rd-48th
5 pts - 49th-end
No bonus points will be awarded for participation in Ranking Events.
At the conclusion of the last CSNS Ranking Event, the top 2 overall players, regardless of classification, earn paid entry fee and travel expense allowance to CBSA Open Nationals in the discipline of their choice (8-Ball, 9-Ball, or 10-Ball). The top 2 Amateur players earn paid entry fee and travel expense allowance to CBSA Amateur Nationals in the discipline of their choice (8-Ball, 9-Ball or 10-Ball). CBSA NAtionals entry fee and travel allowance packages are worth $1,000, provided enough funds are raised by CSNS. The packages will be prorated by available funds if not enough money is raised. Forecast is based on average Ranking Event participation of 32 entries.
If an Amateur player finishes as one of the top 2 overall players, they may choose from paid entry fee and travel allowance to CBSA Nationals, or to CBSA Amateur Nationals, but they may not claim both. The remaining spot will be re-allocated according to the next standing player on the CSNS Ranking Points list. If both Amateur spots are already claimed, this option is no longer available to an Amateur being awarded an Open spot. The player must then either accept the Open spot, or pass, which means the Open spot will be re-allocated to the next standing player)
At the conclusion of the 7th Ranking event, the top 8 women in the point standings will be qualified for a Playdown event, to be held in conjunction with Ranking event 8. The Playdown format will be 7th vs 8th, winner then plays 6th, and so on, such that whomever is 1st place among women in the rankings need only play in the final match. The winner of the Playdown event will earn paid entry to CBSA Women's Open Nationals in the discipline of their choice. Travel allowance amount will be determined by a pro-rated calculation based on the overall participation of women in CSNS ranking events. To participate in the Playdown, a woman must have participated in at least 2 CSNS Ranking Events.
To earn paid entry fee and travel expense to CBSA Nationals via the Rankings Point list, players must have played in at least 2 CSNS Ranking Events.
