NHBB Junior Varsity Age Restrictions

Post by iamthecaptainnow » Wed Nov 13, 2019 9:07 pm

How strict is National History Bowl about age restrictions for Junior Varsity tournaments? I ask because our team's most active members are no-experience 11th graders. Thus, I worry about us entering the Varsity bracket.

They are strict age limits (so they will have to play varsity). There are generally plenty of inexperienced teams at a given NHBB event, and I'd encourage you to reach out to the event's Tournament Coordinator if you have any concerns.
