The 2022 North Carolina Blended VRC State Championship is a one day event in Concord NC.  Teams must qualify for the tournament by participating in a regional event by February 26nd.   Teams qualify by winning awards at a local tournament or by invitation based on the highest skills scores posted in North Carolina during the season.

They will have a two week window to register to KEEP YOUR STATE SPOT after a qualifying event before their invitation to the North Carolina HS VRC State Championship is lost.

**The State qualifying Skills score cut off will be two weeks prior to the state championship.  The number of teams coming qualifying from the skills list is based on open spots after all events the the state of North Carolina have finished.  Teams that qualify from skills list will have a short time to registered and pay for the state championship, please plan accordingly.
