  • Team Managers are required to have a background check beginning this year before they can bring a team to a regional tournament. Many school districts already require these of their volunteers. Read more about this under the Regions tab! Please contact Pamela Schroeder with any questions. 
  • Tournaments will begin on Saturday, February 15, 2020. Be sure to look up your tournament date! (see below and in the Calendar, Tournament Info and Regions tabs). 
  • Team Challenges are now interactive! When viewing a Challenge online, teams can use the nifty new toolbar at the top of each page, as well as color-coded hyperlinks, to quickly access different sections of the Challenge.
  • The Service Learning Challenge, It’s About Time, will be appraised at Regional Tournaments according to the Rules of the Road, with the highest ranking teams advancing to the Affiliate Tournament. There will be no automatic advancement to the Affiliate Tournament.
  • The deadline to register for your Regional Tournament is January 10, 2020.
  • The deadline to submit Clarifications this season is January 31, 2020.
