Student looking to start a team

Postby please » Wed Apr 04, 2018 11:30 pm

Hi, so I’m a high schooler in NYS right now, and I’m really interested in starting a quiz bowl team but I have no idea where to start. Everything I’ve found online is just how a teacher can start it but there’s nothing really for how a student can start it that I’ve seen (I know there’s probably stuff out there but I can’t find it). At the moment, I have a few friends who are interested but not a possible coach. Any advice would be very very appreciated!!! :kenj:

In addition to the NAQT packets mentioned in the link Jonah provided, you can access a large number of non-NAQT packets at the Quizbowl Packet Archive, http://www.quizbowlpackets.com/.

In addition, if you're interested in another national tournament that is not run by NAQT, you can take a look at the PACE NSC (http://www.pace-nsc.org/). However, the questions at PACE (also available from the packet archive) are harder than at HSNCT, so it might help to gain more experience before you get a feel for them.

You're in Jamesville-Dewitt????!!!!

I just moved to JD last July and have been bemoaning the lack of qb in this area. Please hit me up with any questions. I'm more than willing to help out with anything I can do start a quiz bowl team here.

Lest I seem just like some rando, I've been playing quiz bowl since I was in the sixth grade in 1998. I played throughout middle and high school in rural Michigan and was on several national-champion caliber teams while in college at UChicago. My wife is professor at Syracuse. I'd love a chance to help out. Please, please, please don't hesitate to PM me with any questions.
