General Info

  • GB Lancers GB Lancers High School &  Middle School Qualifier is a qualifying event for the 2022-23 VRC game SPIN UP.
  • IMPORTANT Information:
  • The Grace Brethren Lancers GB Lancers High School &  Middle School Qualifier will be held at Grace Brethren Church Main Hall in Simi Valley, CA.  
  • If 10 Middle School teams register/participate, and if the Qualifying Criteria for State Championship allows MS Excellence Award to qualify.
  • We will be running skills as well as two competition fields and a practice field. We expect to have a great diverse group of judges to hand out some hardware and generally look forward to a great time to be had by all.
  • We expect to have a fun, exciting and welcoming environment in which all may compete fairly and graciously.  It is important to note that our Judges and Referees will be paying particular attention to the way teams "interact with every individual at the competition " and "how they present themselves" at our competition. 
  • ** Teams are expected to conduct themselves with grace, sportsmanship, civility and respect for staff and other teams.  The school's fundamental rules of conduct regarding basic things like foul or abusive language and appropriate respect for tournament authorities will be enforced.  Teams who fail to comply may be disqualified from the tournament without refund.
  • We welcome input and support from our fellow teams and encourage you all to consider volunteering as a judge or support staff.

It's going to be lots of fun and we look forward to seeing you all at our GB Lancers High School &  Middle School Qualifier tournament!
