IJA STATE ~ REGIONAL ~ NATIONAL ~ INTERNATIONAL Competition Series
Competitors qualify for their state team by levels and not by points. This system opens the door for many competitors because it does not require competing to earn the most points to qualify. Competitors achieve a Level 2 Master Rank and Title to qualify for a state team. The top ten is chosen from all participants from all state teams at the National Competition. This new system offered by IJA will lead the way in the USA.
