NCASA Offers Quiz Bowl to NC Middle Schools in 2012-2013

Postby friendswithdave » Sat Feb 04, 2012 4:11 pm

NC Association for Scholastic Activities Board of Directors agreed to expand to offer a comprehensive middle school program next year. Quiz Bowl will be one of the competitions we will offer to interested middle schools. We will also award a Middle School Cup to the top NC middle school based on their performance in the major scholastic competitions, including Quiz Bowl.

Contact me for more information or to get on my middle school distribution list to learn more as the program is developed.

NCASA expects to set the dates for all Quiz Bowl leagues and tournaments in late June. All middle school meets and tournaments will be held on the same dates and sites as the high school meets and tournaments. Expect the "Spring" weekly after-school meets to begin with a kick-off on a Saturday in late January, with the District Tournaments in four to six sites in March and the State Final in late March or April.

Registration is now open for NCASA's weekly quiz bowl meets. Interested member schools will be grouped into conferences. Each meet will consist of one school hosting two to three other schools in their conference, with each school playing each other school one time. Results from these weekly meets will be used to seed teams in the Regional Tournaments which are qualifiers for the State Tournament. These meets will kick-off on Saturday, January 26 at one school in each conference. All other meets will be after school. The season will last six weeks.

These meets are open to all NCASA middle and high schools. We expect to form conferences in the following areas:
- Greater Charlotte, including Statesville / Hickory
- Triad
- Raleigh /Durham
- Northeast NC
- Sampson County

Additional conferences will be formed as demand exists. NAQT packets will be used for these meets. These meets and all other NCASA competitions are available at no additional charge to NCASA member schools. Visit our website for membership information and to register: www.ncscholastic.org. NCASA currently has 132 member schools. About half of these are expected to participate in quiz bowl.
