We consistently offer quality competition to over 50 schools with more than 1000 competitors from at least four states. IE's will continue to run over Saturday and Sunday and will be divided into two patterns. This will allow students to triple and quadruple enter if wanted! Judges and coaches will enjoy amazing food and respectful treatment, while competitors enjoy a friendly atmosphere and a beautiful campus.

As someone who attended La Costa Canyon and helped run the tournament for the past decade, I understand how important and impactful this tournament is to our community. We could not be more excited to invite you to continue this grand tradition of competitive excellence and camaraderie, and we hope to see you in San Diego come December.


● Registration deadline for ALL events (including Parli) is Monday, November 27th at 3:00pm. Note that the tournament frequently fills before the deadline, so please enter early.

● (Teams may be added after the deadline, available space permitting; we'll pull entries from the waitlists as spots become available).

With Gratitude,
