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.
In 2018 SCTs will be held on the weekend of February 3. NAQT is in the process of confirming hosts; interested institutions that can meet the host requirements should use NAQT's /account/tournament proposal system to submit a bid.
NAQT made significant changes to its SCT policies for the 2017-18 competition year.
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.
