1). In consideration of the challenges many ACS/CCS leagues have experienced throughout North America due the COVID-19 pandemic, the ACS Executive Committee has lowered the local participation-week eligibility requirement for attendees from 8 matches over 8 weeks to 4 matches of play over a minimum of 4 weeks in one session that paid its 2020-21 sanction fees in the current ACS league year that began June 1, 2020.
2). REMINDER: There has not been a core player requirement for teams qualifying for the ACS Nationals for a few years. Standard and Open Teams may be composed of any eligible players from the same local league; need not be from the same local team. Advanced Teams may be composed of any eligible ACS/CCS league members in ACS/CCS leagues from within the same state/province; need not be from the same ACS/CCS league.
3). While some entries authorized forwarding their entries from the 2020 ACS Nationals to the 2021 ACS Nationals and some ACS State Champion teams missed out on offered perks due to the 2020 ACS Nationals being canceled, those benefits will be awarded at the 2021 ACS Nationals….BUT those players in these categories (as are all attendees to the 2021 ACS Nationals) are still required to regain eligibility by playing at least 4 local matches over a minimum 4 weeks in one 2020-21 ACS/CCS sanctioned-league session that began after June 1, 2020, and paid the 2020-21 ACS league sanction fees.The ACME 2021 ACS National Championships at the Tropicana Las
