The tournament format and schedule retain its traditional Tier 1 format, featuring five (5) team games on Saturday and 20 Baker games on Sunday.
The scholarship prize fund will pay two first-place scholarship prizes of $1,000 each to the Varsity champions, and four additional scholarships per Varsity division. (Additional prize amounts will be pro-rated on the number of entries received in each division). All scholarships prizes will be awarded through USBC’s SMART scholarship program.
Entry Fee remains $250 per team (Lineage - $170, Expenses - $80). Entries will be accepted when full payment is received. University Check, Cashier’s Checks and money orders should be made payable to ISBPA. PAYMENT BY CREDIT CARD IS AVAILABLE and highly encouraged.
Entries will be processed in order received. Only schools that participated in the 2022 Tier 1 tournament will be accepted until September 18. Beginning Sept. 19, we will accept all school registrations. A team will be considered confirmed once payment and entry form with team rosters are received. Tournament entries close at 5:00 pm January 6, 2023. NO REFUNDS ARE ALLOWED AFTER ENTRIES CLOSE. If the tournament is conducted as scheduled, no refunds will be provided under any circumstances, including weather-related issues.

To give the schools that have competed in previous Kegel/ISBPA collegiate tournaments a "head start" on requesting tournament berths and preferred squad times, we will not email/publicize registration to any schools other than those teams that participated in the 2022 tournament until Monday September 19th.
Registration will be accepted through the online registration link below beginning Monday Sept. 12. As in past years, entries will not be considered complete until entry fees are paid in full and roster names are provided.
