Please feel free to contact me with any questions that you have about the upcoming District Tournament. Remember that your students must be members of the NSDA to register for the tournament, that all fees owed to the national office must be paid in full by registration, and that your entry quotas are determined by the size of your chapter on 3/10 (so, it’s to your advantage to keep your student/coach points up to date).
Be sure to check out the Kentucky District webpage at www.kynsda.org. There’s a great deal of history there that includes news from past tournaments, photos, videos, and a growing museum of Kentucky District accomplishments.
I am looking forward to seeing you all in Danville this coming March over the St. Patrick’s Day weekend for KYNSDA! Stay tuned for more updates!!! J
