TEAMS ALREADY QUALIFIED FOR THE CITIES WILL AUTOMATICALLY ALSO LOSE THEIR BID IF THERE ARE ANY PAST DUES.
Please be sure that your team is caught up on all monies owed. If your team owes any past dues, your team will not be eligible for playoffs and wildcard draw, or able to play in the Tri Cups. Full team fees are to be paid during session playoffs as well. This is regardless of how many players actually play (i.e. - match is completed with only 3 players needing to play).
*Starting this session, we will be stricter in regard to enforcing the guidelines of the Bylaws, regarding team fees. Teams who fall behind one week will lose bonus point(s) Teams who fall behind a second week, without notifying the office of valid reason will lose all points for that week, regardless of the score. Third week will cause team to be dropped, if no valid reason. Local Bylaws can be downloaded from the Documents section on the website.

Coastal Carolina APA - Singles Regional Tournament Winners
Congratulations to our Coastal Carolina APA players who won their division in the fall Singles Regional Tournament and qualified to play in the APA 8-Ball Classic or the APA 9-Ball Shootout tournaments held at the APA World Pool Championship in Las Vegas.
ALL PLAYERS MUST PAY THEIR MEMBERSHIP FEE ON FIRST NIGHT OF PLAY!
As seen to the left, the new APA membership card has been redesigned and it will be printed on a permanent card (hard and sturdy like your license). In addition, instead of the APA cards being sent to our league office for distribution to you through the Division Reps, your APA membership card will come directly to you in the mail with your APA membership packet! Each following year, you will receive a sticker in your membership packet to update the year on your membership card to show that your membership is still active. You will receive a new card every 5 years.
You MUST have a correct address on file with APA to receive your membership packet and your membership card. If you have an asterik (*) next to your name on the weekly scoresheet, if you have moved since joining APA, or if you are not currently receiving the "The American Poolplayer" magazine each session, it is highly likely you do not have an up-to-date mailing address on file with APA.
There are two ways to correct this:
- Fill out an APA membership application and update all of your information. This form can be turned in with your team's weekly scoresheets.
- Go to the APA Online Member Services website where you see your team and individual stats. Log in to your account, or create an account if you haven't done so already, and click on your profile to check and update your mailing address and other personal information.
Please note: If our local APA office has to order a replacement card for you, there will be a $5 fee. So please make sure that your information is up-to-date before January! Don't forget that you can renew and pay your membership by credit card online NOW from your APA Online Member Services account!
ALL PLAYERS MUST PAY THEIR MEMBERSHIP FEE ON FIRST NIGHT OF PLAY!
It's a new year, and ALL memberships must be renewed!
Team captains will be held responsible for any membership fees not paid by players. DO NOT ALLOW PLAYERS TO PLAY UNTIL THEY GIVE YOU THEIR MEMBERSHIP FEE! We have to pay the $25 membership to St. Louis for every player who plays even once and even if a team drops him or her from their roster after 1 match. If you collect the money before the match then you will not have to worry about paying for it out of your own pocket.

So, APA is going to pay you for getting your friends, family, co-workers, and acquaintances to join league!!! For every NEW person you bring into APA league, you will receive one week of FREE APA League Play!!
HOW IT WORKS:

APA League Operators of the Year!
We are so proud and excited to find out last night that we won the League Operators of the Year award! Thank you so much to all our Division Reps, our Host Locations, Team Captains and of course, all our players, for making this such a fun and great league!
Attention: All non-smoking APA locations!
In order to ensure the timeliness of APA league matches and a decent conclusion time for APA league nights for all players, guidelines must be put in place to address smoking during APA league play. Players should be ready to play as soon as they are put up in a match. Matches will not be held for a player to take a "smoke break" before beginning their match. "Smoke Breaks" are also prohibited while a player is playing an APA match. Players must complete their match in it's entirety before going outside to smoke.
All players MUST have at least 6 matches played with their team this FALL session in order to participate in the Fall Tri Cups. Five matches are required to play in playoffs.
