Houston Spring Academic Tournament - 3/19/16

Post by Jason Loy » Mon Jan 18, 2016 1:26 pm

Hello coaches,

On behalf of Jason Pounds, coach at Houston High School, I am pleased to announce that Houston will host a tournament on Saturday, March 19, 2016. We will be using NAQT's IS-151A question set; this set is also being used at Marionville, Lee's Summit North, Orchard Farm, De Smet, Perryville, and Calvary Lutheran. If you attend any of those tournaments, you may not attend this one.

Each game will consist of twenty tossups and up to twenty three-part, thirty-point rebounding bonuses. Each team will be guaranteed at least eight rounds regardless of performance; please plan to stay for the duration of the tournament so we can fulfill this guarantee. Rosters will be limited to eight players per team, with no more than six per team playing in any single game. More logistical details will be available at a later date.

We will initially cap the field at twelve teams and will expand if sufficient staff is available.

Fees are as follows:

base fee (first team from each school): $60
second or subsequent teams: $55
travel discount (100 miles or more one way): -$5 per team
buzzer discount (must work for eight players; limit three discounts per school): -$5

To register, please email both me at jloy@tuscumbialions.k12.mo.us and Jason Pounds at jpounds@houston.k12.mo.us with the number of teams and buzzer systems that you'll be bringing.

Thank you,

Jason Loy
Tuscumbia High School
