Breaking Events & Results
The following domestic competitions are key events that will impact qualification for any WDSF Sanctioned Events, the 2023 Pan American Games and/or the 2024 Olympic Games. While preliminary team selection criteria and events are listed below, all final selection procedure criteria will be posted here.
Competitors must be current members of USA Dance, registered as a Breaking Athlete, must have USA citizenship and a valid U.S. passport to get National Championships and potentially represent Team USA at WDSF events. The National Tour will consist of three Regional Championships and one National Championship set to take place between March and June of 2023. Placement in the Top 4 at each Regional Championship automatically secures Top 16 placements at the 2023 BFGUSA National Championship. This will result in four remaining "last chance" placements to be determined via a prelim the day of National Championship, with participation in at least one Regional Championship as a prerequisite for all entries. First and second place per gender [b-boy and b-girl] at the 2023 BFGUSA National Championship will be Team USA's nominated representatives for the 2023 WDSF World Championship.
