On behalf of the Canadian Billiards & Snooker Association (CBSA), I am pleased to announce that the 2012 Canadian Cue Sports Championships will be hosted again by:

Amateur Divisions Guidelines:
Any person that is not listed as an open player, pro, or semi-pro by their Province or CBSA can play in this discipline. Each Province does have a different criteria in ranking their players. An amateur can also play in the Open 9-Ball division, if they qualify out of their Province.
JACCS To Sponsor Junior 9-Ball Division:
After the passing of Scott Soroko in 2009, his family and friends formed the Junior Association of Canadian Cue Sports (JACCS), in his memory. I am sure that most of you know that Scott Soroko was the creator of the website Shooterville, and a true friend to all involved in Canadian cue sports. One of his biggest passions was helping out junior aged pool players anyway that he could.
With JACCS sponsoring the CBSA junior program, no sanction fees will have to be paid by any Canadian junior who wishes to play in the Canadian Junior 9-Ball championships. JACCS will pay the expenses to send our participants to the World championships each year. A great way to always remember a great person.
10-Ball Championships Remain A Direct Entry Event:
Due to the many other disciplines that Provinces hold qualifiers for, the Open 10-Ball Championships will again be a direct entry event, Sanction fees for any person that is not a member in good standing of their respective Provincial Assoc. will not be accepted.
The information sheets for the Championships will be sent out to the Provinces shortly.
Additional information will be found on the CBSA web site: in the following months proceeding the event.
I hope you are all having a successful season in your Province. If any of you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact myself, or any of the CBSA Directors. We would be more than happy to address your concerns.
Kindest Regards,
Steve Cooper
President, CBSA
