Actually, we're still discussing the final number of teams for the Championship Tournament so no number has been announced yet.  It will be between 84 and 100.
 
Each year we take a percentage of the teams in each division from each tournament.  Generally that is between 20% and 30%.  That means that if a tournament has a lot of teams in one of the divisions, more teams will qualify, than for a tournament with only a few teams in that division.  The final numbers will vary a little from tournament to tournament (we obviously can't take 0.5 of a team and at least one team in each division at each tournament will qualify).  Don't expect to find out how many teams will advance until the end of your tournament.  Most tournament directors will not release that info until that time.
 
Hope that helps,
Karen

I am a rookie coach, and my team asked me the other day, "What do
we have to get at the Regional competition, in order to go to the State
competition?"  I, of course, did not have an answer for them.  If someone
would be so kind as to let me know, I'd appreciate it.  I have expressed
to my team that anything we accomplish will be a success and that I am
very proud of our team no matter what.  We had a late start and everyone
is new.  I think they are doing fantastic, but I can't blame them for wanting
to know the answer to their question.  I'm glad they are thinking big.  No task
is unachievable.  I admire thier enthusiasm.

Thanks,
