Coaches Information Only

Your role as a Quiz Bowl Coach to students is very important. Students look to you to provide guidance on playing within the rules, sportsmanship, preparation, teamwork, and practice. You also provide important supervision to the students as they compete during the tournament.

You will also need to work closely with your School Coordinator in crafting your in-school competition, holding practices, and securing transportation. It is important to check your email and use it if you have questions. Email is our primary mode of communication with Coaches and other Quiz Bowl personnel. If you are not receiving a periodic email message from the ISD, please be certain to contact the ISD to verify that we have your correct email address.
