Who may participate?

Schools may enter a maximum of two teams, each of which should have a minimum of 5 and maximum of 7 students.  Each school is required to have at least one teacher sponsor in attendance at the event.  Each team must have at least one parent or teacher chaperone at the event.  All students must be current 9th – 12th graders.


What is the difference between Junior Varsity and Varsity?

Teams can choose to be designated as a JV team if the team only consists of 9th and 10th graders.  Teams having one or more 11th or 12th graders must be designated as a varsity team.


How much does it cost to participate?

The cost is $100.00 for the first team and $75.00 for the second team from the same school.  The program fees include participation certificates, lunch, snacks (morning and afternoon), drinks, and a t-shirt for each student (and one teacher/adult sponsor/team).  Additionally, all schools will receive a commemorative participation plaque.


Is there space available for my team(s) to participate?

We will fill the spaces on a first-come-first-serve basis.  To check on current availability, please contact Josh King at or by phone at 334-844-8123.


How  do I register my team(s)?

Registration will open on March 1, 2016. To register, a teacher sponsor should download the Registration Packet from the left-hand side of this webpage.  Complete the form and send in payment to reserve your space in the 2016 competition.  Registration closes on Friday, April 8, 2018 or earlier if all slots fill.  We will fill spaces on a first-come-first-serve basis for any school registering before the deadline, but after we are full will be put on a waiting list.
