Format & Acceptance

All teams participating in the BID division must meet the minimum referee, score, and impact requirements on their team's roster.

Three Divisions Offered - BID, Elite, Club

Each age group will have a BID and a Non-BID division(s). Bids for the GJNC National and American divisions are earned in the BID division of the Lone Star Regional Championships. The Non-BID (Elite or Club) divisions are for teams competing for the regional championship but do not wish to continue on to the GJNC.

All BID divisions at the LSR Championships will be capped at 48 teams (the 11s at 24). The remaining teams will be placed into the Elite division (capped at 64) and, if applicable, the Club division based on the team's Lone Star Region ranking. For more information regarding the acceptance procedure please see below.


Penalty for not using a GJNC bid earned at the LS Regional Championships
If a team chooses to play in a BID division at the Lone Star Regional Championships and at the conclusion of the tournament does not accept the earned bid for the GJNC tournament, all teams within the club will not be allowed to play in the LSR Championships BID division for the following tournament. This exclusion will be determined at the end of the LS Regionals and will not apply to teams offered a bid at a later date.
 

Acceptance Procedures

All BID divisions in the Lone Star Junior Regional Championships will be limited to a maximum of 48 teams (the 11s at 24). All teams will be placed into the appropriate division based on their ranking determined by the Lone Star Region's Jr. Development Director's Ranking Committee. The top 48 teams (24 in the 11s) will be placed into the BID division. The next 48-64 teams will be placed into the Elite divisions and then if teams remain (likely in ages 13s–17s) then those teams will be placed into the Club division.

BID Division Acceptance Procedure

The ranking for LSR Championships will be pulled on TBD.
