Please check the 2021 Easterns Invitation List posted on the ESA website to see if you earned a slot, or must apply for an alternate slot to the 2021 Easterns®. Competitors signing up for the 2021 Easterns® are only eligible for those divisions in which they competed at the 2021 Northeast Regionals, 2021 Mid-Atlantic Regionals, or the 2021 Southeast Regionals. Competitors must sign-up by 11:59PM on August 16, 2021 in order to reserve their slot. If you register after that date, your registration will be considered a “late paid alternate” and you will be put on the alternate list. Alternates who sign-up before the entry deadline will be considered for any remaining open slots in the order of their Regional Ranking. Alternates or late-paid alternates who register after the entry deadline will be considered for any remaining open slots in the order of their registration on SurfSignup.
