NCIS X (3/6)

Post by kamikaze »

I am happy to announce our 10th annual NCIS will take place at our new high school (although you'll only get to see it virtually) in scenic southwest Virginia. We've scheduled our tournament for March 6, 2021.

AFFILIATION: The top 15% of the field will qualify for NAQT's HSNCT at the end of the season. We are also seeking PACE affiliation for our tournament.

QUESTIONS: We have reserved IS-195 for this tournament.

FORMAT: Right now, we are offering eight (8) rounds of competition. However, if we seem to be doing well and there are no major issues during prelims, we will try to expand to ten (10) rounds. Our field cap is 12 teams but we reserve the right to expand the field should we find enough moderators. Currently, we are planning on hosting this virtually so teams in mid-Atlantic region are more than welcome to attend. With this being an online affair, we will be providing registered teams with rules to abide by for this event.
As for how we are hosting the tournament, we will be using Zoom this time around. We will be sending specific details about how to log in for the tournament in our informational email shortly before the tournament date. We also are asking that a coach or an adult affiliated with the team be present during the entire tournament.

REGISTRATION AND FEES:
-The fee structure is as follows:
Base fee: $60 per team. There is no limit to the number of teams who can attend from one school.
$10 per qualified staffer. We are asking that all staffers do a tech check with tournament officials and attend a training session before the tournament date. Details about both will be passed along to those we need to help with the tournament.

TEAM & ROSTER SIZE: There may be a maximum of six players on one team's roster, up to four of whom may play at one time. There will be no exceptions to this rule. If you bring more than six players, you must register a second team to have all of them play. There is a halftime substitution opportunity in each game. Each player may appear on only one team's roster throughout the day-no switching from the B team to the A team, etc. Teams may also play shorthanded with only three players.

If you have any questions or wish to register, feel free to contact Bob Powers at [email protected]. We look forward to seeing you all here.

Currently, our field is closed for the time being until we secure more staffers. If teams would still like to register, we will start putting them on a waitlist. We anticipate another field expansion to 18 as we did for the CSI and I hope to have more information for you about the expansion soon. Thank you for your patience.

Hi Bob
Do you think it would be possible to enter this tournament? Or at least put us on the waitlist?

Thank you,
