Desperately Seeking a Tournament in Michigan

Post by 313carolyn » Fri Nov 18, 2011 1:40 pm

We are a new team and were unable to get into a league this year, so we will be focusing on tournament play. I am struggling to find tournaments in SE Michigan. Does anyone know of any upcoming ones?

Thank you so much!

Hi Carolyn,

MSU is hosting a tournament on January 21st: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=12376

Additionally, we're hosting our annual March Madness tournament on March 24th. I know that it is not Southeastern Michigan, but many of the teams that come to our tournaments are from Metro Detroit.

Carolyn,

The fine folks at Detroit Catholic Central usually host a tournament in Novi at least once a year. Additionally, if your school can make the short trip down I-75, Bowling Green State University is good for at least one tournament a year (they've already had one this fall, but they might in the spring).

Additionally, there are frequently tournaments run at the University of Michigan. NAQT.com (click the High School tab, then schedule) will give you a listing of tournaments using that company's questions, many of which are hosted in Michigan.

Best of luck!

Normally it would, but our site is still down today. Michigan State's is the next NAQT tournament with space available in Michigan.
