NO SHOW POLICY: Because the AJGA continues to receive far more applications than it has spots available for in its events, the AJGA is adopting the following policy:
If you find that you cannot compete in the National Qualifier - State College, you must withdraw from the event online through the Player Center. If the online withdrawal option is not available, contact the AJGA at (770) 868-4200 and ask to be transferred to a withdrawal hotline or contact Lindsay Dodge at (770) 365-1699 prior to June 25. Complete withdrawal procedures prior to the start of an event are available at ajga.org. This allows the AJGA to replace you with an alternate. If you cannot compete and do not withdraw properly, you are considered a "no show," and the following action will be taken:
1. If you have already been accepted for another event, you will be notified of your disqualification from that event.
2. If you have not been accepted in another event at this time, your next application will not be considered.
3. If this offense is repeated, you will not be allowed to play in any more events for the remainder of the year.
