QUALIFICATION BREAKDOWN:

The 2012 Oakley World Junior Championship is a stand-alone event which represents the undisputed crowning of the ASP World Junior Champion. While the Bali event represented the first of three stops on an ASP World Junior Tour in 2011, this year’s event will mark heightened importance as men’s and women’s Oakley World Junior Championship winners will secure the prestigious Under 21 title in the only event on the elite Junior Stage this year.

The Oakley World Junior Championship format is reminiscent of the former Top 45 ASP WCT format, with surfers qualifying from seven different regions (Australasia, South America, North America, Hawaii, Europe, Africa and Japan) to make up the elite field. The Women’s division will be a mirror image of the current Women’s ASP WCT, with 18 of the finest female up-and-comers competing for the prized crown.

Qualifiers for the Oakley World Junior Championship do battle on their regional circuit to earn their spot at the elite event and the number of surfers allotted from each region is directly related to how the region’s team finished the previous year. For men’s competition, the teams finishing in the top four overall last year are granted six slots in to the Oakley World Junior Championship while teams finishing fifth through seventh are allotted five surfers. Women’s teams send two surfers from each respective region regardless of last year’s overall team placing.

In addition to the regional qualifiers, nine men’s wildcards and four women’s wildcards will be added to this year’s Oakley World Junior Championship draw to round out the fields.
