U.S. citizens and permanent residents are eligible to apply.
Registrants must be members of NASPA in good standing.
Players may not register for the qualification process if they have already registered to qualify for another nation. If a player registers to play for the U.S. and then withdraws to attempt to represent another nation at Causeway 2010, they will be ineligible to compete for the U.S. at Causeway 2011 and the 2011 World Scrabble Championship.
The qualification period began on September 1, 2009. The qualification period ends with the conclusion of the World Players Championship on August 16, 2010.
One spot will be reserved for the top American finisher at the 2009 Causeway Challenge, regardless of whether this player played on the American team or on one of the international teams. If this player declines to play, then an additional spot will be determined by peak WESPA rating.
Note: The top American finisher at the 2009 Causeway Challenge was Tim Adamson.
One spot will be reserved for the top American finisher at the 2009 WSC. If this player declines to play, then an additional spot will be determined by peak WESPA rating.
Note: The top American finisher at the 2009 World Scrabble Championship was Dave Wiegand.
All additional spots (between three and five) will be determined by peak WESPA rating during the QP. Peak ratings will be calculated with the following stipulations:
In order to register for the qualification system, players must contact Brian Bowman or Sam Kantimathi. Players must register their intention to play by September 1, 2010. Any player who commits to play and withdraws after September 1, 2010 will be ineligible to play on the U.S. team at the 2011 Causeway Challenge.
It is to be noted that past winners of the World Scrabble Championship from the U.S. will automatically compete in Causeway, 2010. Each of them still must qualify by rating as described above to be part of the U.S. team. Otherwise, he would be part of an international team in Causeway, 2010.
