The tournament consists of high school students in grades nine, 10, 11 and 12.

Students can come alone or in a group. The winners will receive awards/ribbons.

The tournament will have free doughnuts, coffee and juice for everyone, starting at 8 a.m. in the Student Center. There are also free giveaways to all participating students. Coaches will receive a $10 gift card while supplies last.
