The Local Team Championship (LTC) tournament is held once a year and is considered a Higher-Level Tournament. Teams earn their spot into this tournament by being Tri-Cup Champions from the Summer, Fall and Spring Sessions.

 
In 8-Ball and 9-Ball, two teams in each format will advance to the APA World Pool Championships held in Las Vegas! All teams advancing will be awarded with travel assistance and trophies. 
  

 

 All LTC qualified teams must stay in the top 50% of your division.

"Qualified teams that do not finish in the top half of their division in the sessions after they qualify are subject to heavy scrutiny of their handicaps and/or potential loss of qualification." -Official Team Manual, pg 75 
 
Your Spring Roster is the Roster you will play with at the LTC for Vegas.  Please make sure that all players have 4 matches played during the Spring Session to play in Playoffs or Spring Tricups.  
 
VERY IMPORTANT!!!!  ALL New players must have played 10 matches to be able to play for your team in the LTC's. This can include matches on other teams, single boards, and playoff matches. Pay particular attention to your new players because they often don't get 10 matches on your team during the session if you don't make sure of it.  Don't wait till the last minute to get their ten because if your opposoing team forfeits, they won't get thier match in .  Forfeited matches do not count hen you can wait till the last week of play to get someones match in and their opposing team forfeits.  Forfeits do not count as a match played    in their respective format in the last two yearsby the end of the Spring Session
