Sectional Championship Tournaments

The Sectional Championship Tournaments (SCTs) are the sole means by which collegiate teams qualify for the Intercollegiate Championship Tournament. Sectional Championship Tournaments are held in early February throughout the United States, Canada, and (in some years) Britain.

The 2019 Sectional Championship Tournaments will be held on the weekend of February 9.

NAQT is in the process of soliciting and confirming hosts; interested institutions that can meet the host requirements should use NAQT’s tournament proposal system to submit a bid. (An account is required.)

In general, a school may send teams to any SCT that it wishes (or even to multiple SCTs), but NAQT may limit certain sites to specific classes of teams or schools, and/or require permission to register.

Results from the 2018 Sectional Championship Tournaments, held on February 3, 2018, are still available. NAQT made significant changes to its SCT policies for the 2018 events.

There will also be separate Community College Sectional Championship Tournaments (CC SCTs) for two-year schools and community colleges.
