We've expanded the middle school division to 18 teams! We have one opening at the moment, possibly two.

Re: STARK at Louisiana HS - 12th January 2019

We've expanded the field to 28. An expansion to 32 is likely, and depending on further staff commitments, we could expand to 36.

(UPDATE) We're expanding to 32. 36 remains an option, but is our absolute max.
