if you are not eligible to compete in 2017 amateur and junior world championships could you still be accepted for the grant? #Eagle wings #Grants

So if I'm understanding the point system correctly I believe I have 156 points which would allow me to qualify for MJ2 for ameteur worlds. Is this correct? I found 156 points in my player profile under 2016 season totals. #Eagle wings # Grant
