On behalf of the Missouri Academic Coaches Association, I am pleased to announce that the 2017 MACA JV State Tournament will be held on Saturday, March 11, 2017 at Helias High School in Jefferson City. We will be using a question set produced by Olympia Academic Competition Questions; the set is not currently scheduled to be used at any other tournament in Missouri this year. The limit on team size is eight, although teams of six or fewer students are encouraged. Schools may register multiple teams. All students in the 9th and 10th grades are eligible for this tournament regardless of experience or skill level; no students in the 11th or 12th grade are eligible. Each game consists of twenty tossups and up to twenty three-part, thirty point rebounding bonuses. The field will initially be capped at 18 teams, and registrations will be taken on a first-come, first-serve basis. Field expansion is possible given sufficient staff.
Entry fees are as follows:
First team from each school: $75
Second and subsequent teams from each school: $55
Providing a fully functioning buzzer system: -$5 per system (limit two per school)
All teams will play at least eight games regardless of performance; the exact format of the tournament will be decided once the field is set. Teams should expect to play a pooled round robin in the morning followed by rebracketing for afternoon play. Teams are expected to stay for the duration of the tournament so we can offer all teams their guaranteed number of games.
Plaques will be awarded to the top two overall finishers and the top two small schools (under 500 enrollment in grades 10-12, public, nonselective). Large and small schools will play in the same division.
To register, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with both the number of teams and buzzer systems that you plan to bring.
Please don't hesitate to email with any questions you may have. We look forward to seeing you in March.
