Vanderbilt will host the Tennessee NASAT
tryouts RIGHT AFTER our Pre-Nationals tournament
at Buttrick Hall, 2400 Vanderbilt Pl, Nashville, TN 37212, (and Stevenson 4309 auditorium) on Saturday, April 19th, 2014.
We expect to take no longer than two hours (4-6 PM or 5-7 PM) to complete this and get you guys home at a reasonable time.
EDIT: Delayed Skype tryouts will be on 4/30/14, as all interested participants who haven't tried out yet have been informed.
Input will be sought from various experienced Tennessee coaches and hosts, as well as the Tennessee Academic Coaches' Association (TACA), to determine team members and alternates. Up to 6 students will be chosen along with 1-2 alternates.
We will be using DRAGOON
, a regular difficulty collegiate tournament written by members of the University of Illinois' quizbowl team.
In coordination with those writers, no questions will be posted or distributed anywhere or anytime until after this tryout is held (Abacus question display noted; we will not use those rounds). We encourage anyone that is interested in attending these tryouts to be completely honest about question access and if any illegitimate access is discovered, that player will be disqualified immediately.
This tryout is free to any interested Tennessee high school students.

I look forward to seeing many, many students try out for Team Tennessee on April 19th!
