CSNS Provincial Championships - Pool

 

  • CSNS will host Provincial Championships for Open 8-Ball, Open 9-Ball, Open 10-Ball, Amateur 8-Ball, Amateur 9-Ball, and Amateur 10-Ball.  If there is enough interest shown prior to the date, there will be a separate Women’s division for each of these Championships.

  •  Provincial Championships in 8-Ball, 9-Ball and 10-Ball, both Open and Amateur, including Women's division, will be   open to any NS player (resides in Nova Scotia), regardless of prior participation in Ranking events.

  • To participate in a Provincial Championship, a player must be a current member of CSNS, or purchase a membership at the event.

  • Provincial Championships will be double knockout format, with one set final.  Provincial Championships will be scheduled over two days.

  • Each Provincial Championship will qualify the winner for direct entry to the CBSA National Championship (of the same discipline).  Funding to cover the Entry Fee to the Nationals, and potentially any travel allowance monies for the Champion, shall come from the entry fees collected for that Championship event, and/or from any sponsorship money obtained for the event.

  • If the paid entry spot to Nationals is required to be re-allocated because it is vacated by the Provincial winner, then the spot will be re-allocated according to the next qualifying player from the final placing of that Provincial Championship event.  Any travel expense money is also re-allocated to the next qualifying player, 

  • If enough interest can be demonstrated, CSNS will strive to host a Provincial Junior 9-Ball Championship,   Players born in 2001 and after are eligible for this event.

 

 

 

CBSA National Championships - Pool

 

  • To participate in CBSA National Championships NS players must be a current member of CSNS, who has qualified for Nationals through a CSNS sanctioned event, or who is endorsed by CSNS to compete.

 

  • Players who have not qualified for Nationals through a CSNS sanctioned event, may purchase an entry through CSNS, if either CSNS or CBSA has the spots available to purchase.  

  • To be endorsed to purchase a spot to Nationals in any discipline (8-Ball, 9-Ball or 10-Ball), a player must have participated in at least 2 ranking events.  A ranking event of any pool discipline qualifies toward the 2 event requirement.

  • Cue Sports Nova Scotia will waive the 2 event requirement when CBSA Nationals are hosted in Nova Scotia.

  • Players who have qualified to represent NS at this season's National Championships may purchase an entry to another discipline if they so wish, so long as CSNS or CBSA has spots available to purchase.  There is no requirement for a NS representative, who has already qualified for Nationals, to have participated in a minimum number of prior events in order to purchase another spot.

  • Direct qualifiers to CBSA National Championships may be hosted by CSNS.  Direct qualifiers in 8-Ball, 9-Ball and 10-Ball will be available to any player, as long as they are a current CSNS member or purchase a membership.

  • Funding of Entry Fees to Nationals, and any travel allowances associated with these spots, is at the discretion of the CSNS Executive, based on available funds collected by the association.  Players may be responsible for some or all of the costs associated with participating in Nationals.

  • Travel allowance, if awarded, will only be paid once player is on site at the CBSA event.

  • An awarded spot is still owned by the association, meaning, given just cause, the spot can be revoked or reassigned by the association.  This spot would then be allocated by CSNS executive.

  • Players may not sell or barter the spot.

  • If awarded a National spot via Cue Sports Nova Scotia, players must confirm their entry to CBSA Nationals with the CSNS Executive at least one week prior to the CBSA event.  If a player fails to show for a CBSA event after confirmation, without notification to the CSNS Executive, then that player may be expected to refund the association the cost of entry, and/or face suspension from further CSNS sanctioned events, in addition to any other penalties deemed appropriate by the CSNS Executive.
