Crystal Springs Pre-National Tournament

Post by njsbling »

Crystal Springs Uplands School will be hosting the NorCal Pre-Nationals Tournament on Saturday, May 19, 2018. This tournament will not have separate JV and Varsity divisions; all of the teams will play in one division. Registration will begin at 8:30AM and we plan to start round 1 at 9:00AM. The field cap is 12 teams.

Location: This tournament will take place at Crystal Springs Uplands School, 400 Uplands Drive, Hillsborough, California.

Questions: We will be using the questions from 2018 DII ICT. Novice/JV teams will find this competition to be very challenging.
