Douglas High School, from Minden, Nevada, would like to bring a team. We plan to have five students. How many students play in each round? (In our NAQT in Reno we play 4 at a time with substitutions)?
We see that Nevada teams are free this time, and that is amazing! We can bring a buzzer system if you would like us to.

Welcome! We're glad to have a Nevada school making the trip over the Sierras to join us.

Four players play at a time (substitutions are allowed between games, at halftime, and before overtime if needed).
