General Info

Until I get a final count of participants, the address posted is just a placeholder. Once registration is finalized, I will lock down the final location and update everyone with that information.

 

This meeting has three main objectives:

1. To work out a general strategy for scheduling events and sharing equipment for this season's competitions to maximize the number of events and their timing and locations to best serve all teams in our state.

2. Provide training for those interested in holding events - overall guidelines, best practices, and Tournament Manager software training.

3. Discuss any statewide issues as well as general questions and answers regarding holding events and managing volunteers and teams to give all students the best possible experiences.
