Coaches + Players Tournament @ Tennessee Tech University, 5/4/24 (ILLIAC II)

Post by smatson »

Tennessee Tech University (Cookeville, TN) will be hosting a nats prep/for fun tournament on Saturday, May 4th, 2023, in which coaches are welcome/encouraged to play along with their teams. The inspiration for this tournament comes from Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy's COACH tournament, but for this concept, coaches won't be separated from their teams during rounds.

The tournament will tentatively be held at Bruner Hall on Tennessee Tech's campus.

We will be using the ILLIAC II set.

The field will be capped at 12 teams. We need a minimum of 6 teams for this to be viable.

All funds will be used to pay for the mirror fees and to pay staffers.

Payment can be made on-site. Please make checks out to Sam Matson.

We will play rounds of consisting of 20 tossups and 20 bonuses with powers (15) and negs (-5). No bouncebacks on bonuses.

Check-in will begin at 7:45 AM (CST), the introductory meeting will begin at 8:30, and the first round will begin at 8:45. The tournament should end by 4:00.

The tournament will consist of a single or double round robin or bracketed play, ultimately determined by the final number of teams.

The top three teams will receive book prizes, as will the top 10 individual scorers.
