Thank you for looking into the River Ridge Class A Tournament - a tournament specifically designed as a cost effective tournament intended to allow the kids and teams from the smaller schools a chance to be competitive and gain some success without the presence of the larger teams of the region. For some kids, this is the only tournament they may ever "place" in, but it is important for each kid to see some kind of success in oder to fuel their fire to continue working to improve. While for the experienced and established speakers, this is a perfect opportunity for them to also try out a new event in addition to their strengths because the atmosphere is very low key and easy goin while still remaining competitive. 

The tournament will have two rounds - both double judged - with all four scores being added together to determine final awards - and yes, we sometimes have ties. The top three teams will also receive Sweepstakes Awards.

Bcause this is a small school tournament, we have allowed co-ops to split up in order to have more entries, but have not increased their fees. So for example, EPC could enter two teams, one from Eastland, and one from Pearl City, and those kids would compete againt each other - but the co-op would only pay the single team entry fee. The key is having enough judges - you must provide one judge for every six entries you have. Any team that is short, will be charged $70 for every judge we need to provide for you. (28 entries = 4 judges. 30 entries = 5 judges, etc.)

Entry fee is $100 per team.

By starting prep at 8:00 am, it should give people more time to arrive to the far northwest corner of Illinois where we are located, but we still expect a quick tournament with awards scheduled for somewhere around 1:30 or 2:00 in the afternoon. There will be concessions available.
