The Individual Championship on March 21 will include a championship section and an ‘under section’ in each age group:

The High School, Junior High and Elementary Championship sections are open only to Alabama residents and are limited by grade and rating, because officials will choose the Alabama nominees to the Denker, Barber and Rockefeller tournaments from those sections.
