How do athletes qualify for the IBTF World Championship or the IBTF Nations Cup?

The qualifying process is left up to each member federation. Some federations hold a qualifying competition -- sometimes along with their National Championship and sometimes as a separate competition. Some federations qualify their athletes through a year-round process. In keeping with the IBTF Philosophy Statement for Equitable Competition, Level B and Level A athletes have specific content restrictions -- these apply at the Nations Cup competition itself, and should also apply during any national qualifying process.
