We have a fairly small but terribly passionate young team, we are looking to ensure judges but we will need your assistance in terms of filling the judging pool. For schools with over 30 entries, you are expected to bring a per additional 5 entries over the 30 allowed. If we have a surplus of judging, we will make it public that we can host a larger tournament cap of entries. Given the nature of hosting a tournament in the dead of winter, coaches and assistants should anticipate having a ballot for Saturday morning, during the first Individual Events round.

Please reach out if you have any questions.
