Regional tournaments are one day double elimination tournaments for axe throwing competition within a single regional division to qualify for Round 1 of the IATC.
2. Top 4 Rule
Champs Points Moves
This route to IATC contention is intended to ensure that skilled players in competitive leagues are given an opportunity to qualify. To qualify under the 70 Rule, an axe thrower must not have already qualified via a Regional Tournament. To qualify, a player must throw an average of 70 or better in three seasons during the IATC qualifying year. The three seasons do not have to be back-to-back, nor do they have to be in the same league night; but they have to occur within one organization and they must be in three separate time frames.
The winners of the Wildcard Tournament qualify for IATC Round 1. Only players that haven’t yet qualified (by the previous means outlined above) are eligible to compete. *See Wild Card Tournament.
