Academon Invitational 2022, presented by SWATA

High school tournament on December 03, 2022

Host location: Castlewood High School

Address: 304 Blue Devil Cir, Castlewood, Virginia 24224

Question Set: 2022 IQBT Regular Season Set #1

Field cap: 16 teams

The second tournament site for the Southwest Virginia Academic Team Alliance (SWATA) in 2022-2023.

The SWATA footprint is limited to the following Virginia counties/independent cities:
Bland County, city of Bristol, Buchanan County, Carroll County, Dickenson County, city of Galax, Giles County, Grayson County, Lee County, city of Norton, Russell County, Scott County, Smyth County, Tazewell County, Washington County, Wise County, Wythe County.

(Schools outside of these counties/independent cities asking to participate in these tournaments will only be considered on a case-by-case basis, and all with interest should be aware that the bias will be towards keeping participation limited to the SWATA footprint; any request for participation from outside the SWATA footprint should expect an answer of “no”.)

IF YOUR SCHOOL IS WITHIN THE SWATA FOOTPRINT BUT OUTSIDE OF THE SWATA CORE PARTICIPANT GROUP AND YOU DID NOT PLAY THE STATE LINE SHOWDOWN (that is, if you come from a school other than Abingdon, Carroll County, Castlewood, Gate City, Grundy, Honaker, Lebanon, Richlands, Ridgeview, Tazewell, or Virginia), then YOU WILL NOT BE REQUIRED TO PAY AN ENTRY FEE for a maximum of two teams per school. If you can support a fee, we would appreciate the contribution; however, if you have not played a SWATA tournament before, we want your presence more.
