Clarification on 2016-2017 Provincials Eligibility Rules:

Athletes only have to attend one local competition in a discipline in order to receive a Provincial Ranking in that same discipline. If you finish in the Top 10 at any local competition during the 2016-2017 OCF Competitive Season you are guaranteed an invitation to Provincials in that same discipline. We will invite all athletes that are in the top 20 Provincial Ranking in each discipline to the Provincial Championships of the same discipline which will include any athletes tied for 20th position. We will not take any more athletes in any category than those that are ranked in the top 20 in that discipline regardless of whether any athlete in the top 20 declines their invitation or not. Any athlete ranked in 11th place or lower (e.g. 12th, 13th, 14th etc) at a local competition will have to wait to see what their Final Provincial Ranking is. If that athlete has a Provincial Ranking in the top 20 in their age category they will qualify for Provincials for that discipline. It is your best result at one local competition that determines your ranking in that discipline and not a combined total for both.
