Spring History Bowl Regionals (updated 3/1/21)
International Academic Competitions is pleased to announce that this year’s A Set tournaments will take place in the form of online Team vs. Team events. For Team vs. Team, the Spring Regionals (A Set) will take place in April. Teams will continue to be limited to six players, with only four playing at a time. All matches will be played online using Google Meet and our online buzzer system, COBA-cc.
Spring Team vs Team Events
Registrations for the Spring Online Bowl Team vs. Team Events is now open, and will close Wednesday, March 31!
While teams in the Fall History Bowl League were grouped by geography and played over 5 weeks, the Spring Regionals will look almost exactly like Winter Regionals. The Spring Regionals will be made up of 3 separate tournament dates during a two-week period in February. Each tournament will have 5 rounds of preliminary play running from 11:00am EST until 4:00pm EST, then have a hour and a half break, after which the playoffs will begin at 5:30 EST. The number of teams that will advance to playoffs will depend on the size of the field.
All of these tournaments will use our A Set of questions, so if you participate in one Spring Regional date, you cannot participate in another. Additionally, if a school has more than one team that wants to participate, all teams must compete on the same day. All schools are welcome; you do not have to have played in the Fall or Winter League to play in the Spring Regionals. As usual, each tournament will have both a Varsity and Junior Varsity division.
