U.S. National Championships 2013 – High Performance Program (HPP) decision.

In keeping with the USCA’s High Performance Program goals of building toward long-term sustained competitive success, two men’s and two women’s teams from within the 2012-13 High Performance Program will receive byes into the 2013 USCA National Championships. This decision was made by USCA Director of High Performance Derek Brown after considerable discussion and feedback from a number of athletes, Athletes Advisory Council members, coaches, and USCA board members.

Both the Men’s and Women’s National Championships will have 10 spots available as follows:

• 2 High Performance Program teams

• 2 Order of Merit teams

• 6 open qualification teams

The High Performance Program teams will be confirmed in early June 2012, after the HPP advisory group has made the selections and team invitations for the 2012-13 season.
