Brookline High School is pleased to announce the third running of the Brookline Spring Rookie Tournament (BSRT), to be held on Saturday, May 20th 2017. The goal for BSRT is to grow involvement in quiz bowl amongst schools in the Greater Boston Area, as well as New England as a whole. Additionally, we envision BSRT serving as an entry point for new players from established schools. We define “new players” as individuals who are in their first or second year of competition (though, honestly, we trust that individual players should be to able to accurately self-identify as "novice-level"). We believe that a spring competition for new players will help generate interest in the 2017-18 season and get more students involved.

We will be using the NAQT set IS-165A, running untimed rounds of 20 tossups each (with accompanying bonuses).

To register, please email with the following information:
• Number of teams you are registering
• Number of experienced staffers you are bringing (we encourage veteran players to moderate for the newcomers)
• Number of functioning buzzer systems you are bringing
• Name, email address, and phone number for your team’s contact person
On the day of the tournament we will run sign-in from 8:15am to 8:45am with the aim of starting the first round at 9:00am.

+$70 for the first team from a school
+$50 for every additional team from that school

-$10 per experienced staffer (veteran players, we’re looking at you!)
-$10 per functioning buzzer system

Minimum fee: $0 per school

Brookline High School is located at 115 Greenough Street, Brookline, MA 02445.
Our campus is conveniently located at the Brookline Hills stop on the D branch of the Green Line. There is ample street parking, and the school is just off of Route 9 and a few minutes from I-90 and I-95.

We hope to see you in May!
