Students must attend the school with which they are registered and must travel with a responsible adult. A “school” is a diploma-granting institution. Independent and club entries are not allowed. Hybrid teams are not allowed. Novice status is limited to 9th or 10th grade in their first year of competition (contact the Tournament Director to appeal this status in specific cases). Any entries found to be in violation of these rules will be disqualified immediately at the discretion of the Tournament Director.
A responsible adult must be "on site" for the duration of the tournament. "Responsible adult" means someone beyond high school age who is acting with the permission of the school to represent the school's students if an issue arises. An adult being "on site" means they are available and able to get in touch rapidly with any student or judge representing the school.
Please note: Pennsbury students will be eligible to compete and break in all events.
