For the last several years, people who were not members of a BCAPL-sanctioned league could purchase a CSI Membership and participate in BCAPL singles and scotch doubles divisions. The purpose of that policy was to provide opportunity to people who did not have a BCA Pool League in their area. Although the policy was established with good intentions, it created a ‘bypass’ around the league system. Therefore, league divisions are now available to league members only.
CSI Singles Divisions
There are still several events available for non-league members at the BCAPL World Championships. There are three (3) events open to CSI Members – the CSI 9-Ball Singles, CSI 10-Ball Singles, and CSI 8-Ball Singles, held back-to-back, July 23-28. These divisions are non-handicapped and open to any CSI Member with a Fargo Rating of 720 or lower. League-qualified members, even those with ratings above 720, may also participate in these divisions if they choose.
