In addition to an annual state championship tournament, the NCASA will also sponsor conference league play for a six-week period in the spring so teams can practice for the state contest. More details will be posted soon. We'll also host an Open Quiz Bowl tournament earlier in the year to give your players a taste of what the real contest is like.
