Mr. Bockler’s Commentary

I’ve attended this tournament more often than not over the past seven years. It’s a great tournament for beginning students, or students who have not had much tournament experience. The judges and officials guide everyone through the competition with ease. Plus, it’s not too terribly far from home.

This tournament always helps kick off to competition season. I’m happy to help coach any of our students to get ready for this tournament, and I’ve definitely got it on my calendar this year.
