Fun Fact: Although the exact number could vary depending on direct invites and athlete acceptance of spots, there are more individual spots available through the Open to earn a spot to compete at the next stage of competition (Sanctionals) than there were Regionals spots available in 2018.
In addition to these events, there are another eight events that have set aside direct invites for top-performing athletes in the 2020 Open on the worldwide and country leaderboards, which means the next five weeks have the potential to unlock a ton of competition opportunities.
