This year -2021- is the year of the State Championship Tournament here at U.S. Steinholding Association! We are kicking off our first ever State-wide tournaments. Do you have what it takes to be the best Steinholder in your state?
If you want to compete in a State Championship Finals and have a shot at state-wide notoriety, cash prizes, and more, you'll have to prove you're tough enough by qualifying first. Check out the list of State Championship qualifying locations by clicking on your state below. Remember, there may be other independent Steinholding competitions in your state, but only venues that registered with the U.S. Steinholding Association and are listed in the links below are eligible to send representatives to the State Finals! Note: You must be 21 or older to compete in the State Championship Finals!
We're starting off with a handful of states that take Steinholding seriously, but if you think your state has what it takes to host a State Championship series, let us know! We require a minimum of 15 registered venues hosting qualifying round competitions to put a state championship title up for grabs, and we need a truly great venue to host the State Championship Finals. Talk to your favorite bars, breweries, festivals, etc., and tell them you want some Steinholding in your town and share this link with them.
Once you've found your qualifying venue, it's time to start training! Check out our Steinholding Training articles to prepare you for the big leagues. With competitors coming from across the state to battle it out, you'll need to be ready if you want to take on the best, so use our training tips to get in peak Steinholding form. We collected training techniques and game-day preparation techniques from the best Steinholders in the business but the rest is up to you, so it's time to get to work.
But that's not all- we're also hosting a free-to-enter giveaway because we want to know where you want to compete! Every venue we've ever worked with to set up a Steinholding competition has had a great experience, and we have plenty of repeat partners to attest to that. BUT unfortunately there are still a LOT of venues out there who haven't been introduced to the magic of Steinholding. This is where you come in. Is there a venue near you that should be signing up as a Qualifying Venue and hosting a Steinholding competition, but hasn't yet? Join our giveaway by tagging the venue in the comments of one of our State Championship posts (like the one linked here to let them know they need to get in on this action. Want a bonus entry? Share one of our State Championship posts and tag your favorite venue for an extra entry. Want even more BONUS ENTRIES!? Tag your favorite venue on our State Championship-related Instagram posts over at https://www.instagram.com/ussteinholding/.
At the end of June, July, and August we'll be randomly choosing 2 winners and sending them a USSA mini-prize pack with a couple USSA koozies or pins or stickers or something. More importantly though, every entry also gets you put into the running for a larger prize drawing that goes down on September 10th, 2021 for a pair of USSA logo steins or a 6-pack of our logo pint glasses (your choice) AND a $50 Threadless gift card so you can get yourself some of our sweet USSA logo branded gear just in time for Fest Season or use it in one of the thousands of other Artist Shoppes on Threadless. You can enter as many times as you want and you can tag venues anywhere in the US even if we don't have a State Championship program set up in their state yet. You CAN'T tag the same venue twice and you CAN'T tag a venue that has already signed up. If you do this, the duplicate entries won't be counted. No purchase necessary, just tags and shares! Full rules available below. Thanks a ton in advance for making our inaugural Steinholding State Championships awesome and helping us find the best venues to partner with!
