NATIONAL BIBLE CHALLENGE

TOURNAMENT: . ,

The venue will be Google Meet which is free and easy-to-use. Start time will depend on the size of the field but will likely be 9:00 or 10:00 Eastern. Entry Fee: $60 per team

Each team will compete in at least three official tournament matches. Advancement to the Single Elimination playoffs will be determined by performance in the three preliminary games. All 2-1, and 3-0 teams will make the playoffs.

Your team contingent should include four starters and one or more coaches. Three-player teams are fine. Alternate(s) are allowed but must remain on mute until they are in play.



Scope

We do not focus on just one book of the Bible. The entire Bible, Genesis to Revelation, is fair game. We prefer the NIV but will accept answers worded in the language of any authoritative translation.



Training

A tutorial on using the videoconferencing program relative to the tournament will be sent to all coaches in time for them to practice with their teams. Our tech coordinator will be available to answer all questions ahead of time and will be available by phone for all matches.



Cap

For this one-day tournament we will be limiting the field to no more than 36 teams.
