Download a registration form to attend an IHSSBCA Novice tournament. Novice tournaments are designed for new players, so attendance is restricted to new and inexperienced players. Any high school team can attend a Novice tournament, but check the Novice tournament page to make sure the players you’re bringing are eligible.

Novice will be held on October 14 at Barrington, Centennial (Champaign), Fenton (Bensenville), Southwestern (Piasa), and Winnebago; and on October 24 at Mount Vernon.
