Below is a list of excellent tournaments for new teams to attend. ​We choose our recommended tournaments based on the following parameters: difficulty of question set (regular minus is ideal for new teams), location (tournaments in Connecticut are prioritized), and finally, if applicable, entry fees and presence of split divisions.

Yale's yearly Fall Academic Tournament is hosted on a regular-minus level question set (they will be using NAQT"s IS-187A question set this year). Connecticut teams are highly encouraged to attend if possible.

SCOP Novice @ Hunter

Hunter College High School's mirror of SCOP Novice is the only true novice tournament in the area, with eligibility barriers that limit the field to first- or second-year high school quiz bowl players who have not attended Nationals before. The tournament is thus an ideal choice for new teams and players.

More information can be found here. The registration form can be found here. Teams should be advised that the field is nearly full.
