Will there be onsite options available for community college SCTs?

Any updates? I know COVID is being a big pain for everyone, so it's entirely understandable if not.

Hi, perhaps this was a dream or other similar occurrence but I thought I remembered seeing somewhere that NAQT was once again having open registration for this year's ICT (meaning that SCT results wouldn't play a factor in this). Can you please comment on this?

We have not yet finalized how ICT qualification will work this year (but expect an announcement relatively soon).

Sorry to ask again given that this was just last week, but considering that SCT is in a little over two weeks, it would be nice to know whether players interested in attending ICT need to prioritize attending SCT.

We're planning to run a D-value qualification system very similar to the one we used for the 2019 ICT. Players interested in attending ICT in 2022 should plan to play SCT this February.

Re: 2022 NAQT SCT: February 5- register now!

Post by Important Bird Area »

Quick reminder that registration for many of our SCT sites closes on Tuesday, February 1st. Teams that have not yet registered for SCT are encouraged to do so in the very near future.

Please note that high school and middle school players and coaches may not staff (or observe) SCTs. We have a number of high school tournaments later in the spring using the Division II SCT question set.

I've created a private forum for discussion of the 2022 SCT question sets. Please select "2022 SCT Discussion" from your User Control Panel to join. (No access for community college or high school players until the relevant tournaments later in the spring have concluded.)
