February Team Trials

Oct. 23, 2013, 12 a.m. (ET)

Registration is now available for the 2014 North American Cup & Senior Pan American Championships Team Trials to be held February 9th in Chicago.  You can register via the link below.  

The date of the trials has been moved from March and this event is now a Team Trial for the North American Cup due to changes in the qualification procedure that were announced by the Pan American Karate Federation after this year's Nationals.  The 2014 North American Cup (March 21-23 - British Colombia, Canada) will now be a qualifier for the 2015 Pan American Games.  Due to that change, we have to hold a new trials to ensure all athletes who wish can compete in the Trials for the North American Cup.  If you have additional questions about the change to the process, please contact the National Office.
