Quiz Bowl Team

We are happy to announce that starting in the fall of 2017, St. Pat’s will be offering a Middle School “Quiz Bowl” team.  Students in 6th-8th grade will be eligible to participate.

Quiz Bowl is a game in which 2 teams of up to 4 players each, compete head to head to answer questions in the areas of history, literature, science, fine arts, current events, sports, and popular culture.

The commitment will be not more than one practice per week, and usually one tournament per month through March, 2018.  Depending on the turnout, multiple teams can be fielded at the tournaments and students will be assigned on teams based on their performance at practice and prior tournaments, as judged by the coach.

If you have a student who has a steel trap for a memory, or has a passion for trivia, or any of the subjects listed above they may be a perfect candidate for this activity.  Studying is required, and team success depends on the preparation put forth by the students on the team.

The expense will depend on the tournament costs, but a ballpark estimate is $70.00 – $100.00 per student, depending on the number of tournaments we enter, and the up-front material costs.

For more information and to join the team please contact the head coach, Jay Welter, at: jw@JWL2.com – Please put QUIZ BOWL in the subject line.
