In the APA, Everyone Can Play & Anyone Can Win!
Join the APA!
While some membership cards require you to be able to jump the cue ball, bank it off three rails and sink the 8-Ball blindfolded, getting an APA Membership Card is much easier.
Having fun, meeting new people and playing pool is what the APA is all about.. You don't have to be a pool shark, because in the APA -- everyone can play and anyone can win. The APA wants beginners and novices, because it is the AMATEUR Poolplayers Association. No other organization in pool gives ordinary players a chance to win a share of nearly $1.5 MILLION guaranteed cash and prizes paid out through its national tournaments.
How does the APA do it? It uses The Equalizer® handicap system to determine the amount of games a player has to win in order to capture the match. It allows a novice to win less games than a more-skilled opponent to win a match.

All teams that are qualified for State Cup and do not make it into playoffs for their division could be disqualified and/or handicaps may be revised. This will be decided by the handicap review committee and the Board of governors.
All teams that are qualified cannot change their roster after the 4th week of play in the Winter/Spring session and if would like to change a person they must get permission from our office first. Any player change must be an established player not a new player. No exceptions.
