NAQT is delighted that LetterOne is returning as the presenting sponsor of our IPNCT.

The field for the High School Division is limited to 120 players. The field for the Middle School Division is limited to 72 players. NAQT may expand the field depending on the level of interest and the availability of facilities and staff.

Is there any concern about the low number of registered players, particularly in the Middle School Division? Or, do most people wait until much closer to the event to register?

We are committed to running IPNCT no matter the field size. That being said, we do expect the number of registrations to increase substantially (especially as we reach out to potentially interested players).
