Resources for Team Development
Starting a New Team
NAQT has written a series of articles about the process of starting new teams and developing existing teams:
- Many teams run their own tournaments as fundraisers; the most profitable kind is probably an open high school tournament. At the simplest level, teams pay NAQT for the questions and keep the proceeds for themselves. Potentially, a school's admissions department might be willing to help fund a high school tournament that brought potential students to campus.
- Intramural Tournaments: Running an intramural tournament for the student body may help justify additional funding from the student government or the campus activities office.
- NAQT Entering Freshman Contact List: This service connects high school seniors with the teams at the colleges they will attend in the fall.
- Intramural Tournaments: Running an intramural tournament for the student body is often an effective recruiting technique for college teams.
- Quizbowl Packet Archive: High school and college packets from old tournaments, charitably donated by teams.
- Quiz Bowl Fact of the Day: Facts about topics of interest to quiz bowl players, updated approximately daily.
- Quinterest: Database search engine of questions from the packet archive.
