Additionally, the top 30% of small-school eligible teams will qualify for NAQT’s Small School National Championship Tournament (SSNCT). More info on those tournaments, including NAQT's definition of "small school," is available on NAQT’s website.

Teams will be grouped into initial brackets of six and play a round robin within their bracket. After lunch, we will re-bracket teams for afternoon rounds. During afternoon rounds, teams will be placed against other teams with similar records. Assuming a full field, all teams will play at least ten games.

PAYMENT:
Payment can be made to Friends Select School (put "Quiz Bowl" in the memo). Our address is 1651 Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Philadelphia PA 19103. You may also bring cash or check to the tournament site.

Registration will be from 8:00 A.M. until 8:30 A.M., followed by a brief meeting for coaches and players. We expect to begin play promptly at 9:00 A.M.

If your program has not played a pyramidal tossup-bonus quiz bowl tournament in the last three years, your team(s) will automatically qualify for the new team discount. Please ask if you have questions regarding this discount.

For lunch, there are numerous options around the school. You will be provided with a list of these and a map at registration
