*NOTE: All times are approximate. Rounds will run as soon as possible after previous round is completed, so students and coaches should check postings often and be prepared to go to rounds earlier if schedule permits. Under no circumstance should students leave campus. Failure to show up for a round may result in forfeiting the round.
Each school is required to bring one judge for every 2 teams (or fraction thereof). Extra judges are appreciated and will help the tournament to run efficiently and on time. Judges must be out of high school, and must be at least one year out of high school if they have previously competed in WBFL. Please enter the names of your judges (and not a placeholder such as Judge 1) by the initial registration deadline.
Judges should report by 8:00 AM so that they are present for judging instructions. Please tell your judges to be ON TIME. Late judges cause the tournament to run late. Please also note the relationship of your judge to the team on JOT. Failure to fulfill your judging commitment may result in dropped entries at the sole discretion of the Tournament Director.
