Northwestern will host Wake-Up Call III
, our annual high school novice tournament, on October 27, 2012
. I will be the Tournament Director. To register, please fill out this form
We are using Invitational Series 121A from NAQT. (Springfield will also be using this set for their JV tournament in January.) We will be following all NAQT rules
with a few exceptions: matches will consist of two untimed halves of ten questions each, rosters are capped at six, and math computation questions will be skipped.
The field is currently capped at 18 teams, which will play ten matches followed by finals as necessary. I may also open a separate division for middle school teams. I will post logistical info sometime in September.
In order to make Wake-Up Call III more novice-friendly than last year's event, we will be enforcing the IHSSBCA's definition of a "novice." A player is only eligible for Wake-Up Call III if he or she meets all
of the following criteria:
[*] has played fewer than 40 varsity-level matches for his or her school's top team;
[*] has played fewer than 80 career matches at any level;
[*] has never scored more than 35 points per game at a varsity invitational
[*] has never scored more than 20 points per game at a national
championship tournament; and
[*] has never been named to an All-Tournament team at any varsity
or frosh/soph high school tournament.
