Re: How Often/When Does Your Team Practice?

Last year, TJ "practiced" for two or three days a week from 4-6 after school, but we would routinely quit after 45 minutes or so and go play basketball instead. In fact, for the one or two months before the national tournaments, we pretty much completely stopped practicing and balled all day. That a...

Re: 2008 PACE NSC registration information

Dr. Chuck,

Is it still standard procedure to waitlist a school's third team if that team has qualified? Because I believe TJ C qualified by winning the division II championship at the WoQ Saturday event. If I'm wrong, which I probably am, please let me know.
