Maine Junior State

    Championships

Welcome the Maine State championship page.   This State Championship is the fourth stop in the New England Junior American Championship Series

Welcome to the New England Junior American Billiard Championship Series.  Our series currently consists of six (6) stops; five (5) state championships and one (1) New England Regional Championship.

  State championship tour stops: 

        The Billiard Congress of America    (BCA) is the governing body of pool in North America.  Along with the Billiard Education Foundation  (BEF) The BCA has, for more than a generation, created a platform for young players to compete, grow, and to flourish in the sport of billiards.

        The winners of each State Championship stop, in both the Girls and Boys divisions, will be awarded the official title of State Champion and will win a paid entry into the 2024 BEF American National Billiard Championships. This event is scheduled to take place at the Oakley-Lindsay Center in Quincy Illinois, July 8-13. 

         The BEF American National Billiard Championships is the most prestigious youth billiard event in North America.  America's top young cueists compete for academic scholarships, prizes, and an opportunity to represent North America in the 2024 WPA World Junior Billiard Championships.

         Those young players chosen to represent the United States on the North American team will travel to New Zealand in November of 2024 to compete against the best junior players worldwide representing approximately 30 countries.

          Players must not turn 19 during the calendar year 2024 to be eligible.  There is no minimum age to enter either the boys or girls qualifying bracket. 

        New England Regional Billiard Championships:

             Everyone who has competed in at least one of our New England State Championship tour stops will be invited to compete in our New England Regional Championships.   The winners of the State Championship stops, as well as those who place, will be seeded in our New England Regional event.   Not only will the winners of the Regional Event receive a New England Championship Title, but we are raising funds to provide monies towards travel to the BEF American National Championships in July. 

    12 and under bracket:

           Each tour stop will also hold a 12 and under bracket.  Players must not turn 13 during the 2024 calendar year.  This bracket is designed to offer opportunities for the less experienced and younger player to participate in a competitive setting and to be recognized for their success.   While players in this bracket will also qualify to compete in the BEF American National Billiard Championships,  winners of this bracket do not receive a free entry to nationals and are not eligible to compete in the WPA World Junior Billiard Championships.
