The IHSSBCA sponsors an annual coaches’ conference and four annual tournaments:
- SchoBowlFest in September is a non-tournament conference for Illinois coaches.
- IHSSBCA Novice in October at multiple sites across the state.
- IHSSBCA Kickoff in November at multiple sites across the state.
- IHSSBCA Turnabout in January at multiple sites across the state.
- NAQT Illinois State Championship in February at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Teams registering for IHSSBCA Novice, Kickoff or Turnabout must be represented by an IHSSBCA member. Teams do not need to need to be represented by an IHSSBCA member to attend NAQT State, but they do need to qualify based on established guidelines. Additional information about each tournament can be found in the links above.
