Sectional Championship Tournaments
The Sectional Championship Tournaments (SCTs) are the sole means by which collegiate teams qualify for the Intercollegiate Championship Tournament. Sectional Tournaments are held in early February throughout the United States, Canada, and (in some years) Britain.
NAQT made significant changes to its SCT policies for the 2017–2018 competition year.
Registration is now open for the 2018 SCTs, which will be held on the weekend of February 3, 2017.
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 2017 Sectional Championship Tournaments, mostly held on February 4, are now available.
There are also separate Community College Sectional Championship Tournaments (CC SCTs) for two-year schools and community colleges.
