Tournament Info

We will offer six (6) preliminary rounds in Open, JV, and Novice divisions (with sufficient entries) and an appropriate number of elimination rounds in each division. Teams with a negative preliminary record will be ineligible to clear to elimination rounds. Time Limits are 9-3-6 with 10 minutes of prep. The current NDT/CEDA topic will be used.


Each team will require 3 rounds of judging. You are required to arrange your own judging. All judges are obligated through the first full elimination round or one (1) round past the elimination of their teams from the tournament.
