General Info

Hello and good morning! I am proud to have you at the Jackson Prep tournament. This tournament is invitational to only IQ teams elementary from Madison County Schools and Jackson Prep. This will be held in one of our auditoriums at the front of the campus.  Parking is in the front parking lot and enter through the Upper School (High School).  For food, there are plenty of resturaunts close by, so plan on sending a parent for food or have it delivered on site.  Concessions may or may not happen at this time, but I will announce it the closer we get.   We will have team tables, but charging will be in certain spaots along the hall, so you may want to bring a power strip and a container to put them in so you know what is yours.

BIG BREAKING NEWS!!!!! -----> Will have a themed event!  Custom 3D printed trophies will be given as prizes for the school or team to display.

1) Best school theme dressed team - represent your schools mascot or theme

2) Best school mascot/theme decorated table/pit

Come and join us for this fun event! For those of you who were here last year, I promise we will have the air checked and double checked before the event!
