The league year consists of 3 sessions: Summer, Fall and Spring. Each session gives your team a chance to qualify for the South OC LTC in June. But you better hurry because we're growing fast, so now is the time to try your luck, or if you've got skill, bring it!

The Southwest Challenge events occur in Las Vegas twice a year, 8-Ball in the Spring and 9-Ball in the Fall. Members from league areas in the Southwest US region form teams of 3 players and compete for trophies and cash of up to $3,599 for first place!The main event is a tournament where teams compete with a unique "rotating shooting order" that gives all members of the team an equal opportunity to play. Each team must declare their shooting order when submitting entry forms before the tournament. Teams must rotate through their rosters during the tournament, keeping the same shooting order (rather than posting and counter posting as in weekly league play). This forces teams to rely on all teammates to help them advance through the tournament, and may create some interesting match-ups with surprising results!In addition to the main event, all active players in the southwest region can enter mini-tournaments throughout the weekend. Entry fees range from $10-20 with 100% cash payback! Tournaments may have up to 8 or 16 or 32 on a board, range in 8-ball and 9-ball formats, for singles and doubles teams, and may be tiered by Skill Level or open to all Skill Levels. If you're not playing in the main event, current APA members can still participate for a nominal green fee since all tables are open throughout the entire event!Look for news articles on the home page and event fliers with entry forms as the tournaments approach!Below are links to SWC General Information & Rules of Play:* General
