When you play league
play in Gulf Coast APA, you have the opportunity to earn patches as an award
for your performance each week.
Below are the patches that are available to be earned in the Gulf Coast APA.
(Please note, some conditions/stipulations apply for certain APA patches. See the details below for each patch.)
8 Break & Run Patch
9 Break & Run Patch
8-Ball Mini Slam Patch
If you earn an 8 on the Break and an 8 Break & Run during the same League Night, you just achieved the 8-Ball Mini Slam! **Only 1 per session
We'll present you with this patch to honor the accomplishment.
9-Ball Mini Slam Patch
Just like the 8-Ball variety, this patch is earned by getting a 9 on the Snap and a 9 Break & Run on the same League Night. **Only 1 per session
Grand Slam Patch
The granddaddy of them all, the Grand Slam Patch is reserved for the rarest of feats--earning an 8-Ball Mini Slam and a 9-Ball Mini Slam within the same session. **Only 1 per session
Rackless Night Patch
20-0 Skunk Patch (9-Ball)
Can you go the whole match without racking once? If so, then you have earned a Rackless Night Patch! You have to win the lag, and then win every rack until the game is over--no easy feat, but totally rewarding when it happens! **Only 1 per session. Patch only applies to the 8-Ball format.**
Ever have one of those matches where it feels like you can't miss? If you manage to beat your opponent by a score of 20-0, you will receive a 20-0 "Skunk" Patch to mark the occasion!
APA Member Patch
I Won My First Match Patch
Each year in your APA Membership kit you will receive an APA Member Patch with corresponding year.
For all new APA Members, you must win the first match you play in the Gulf Coast APA.
