National Championship Tournament Information

The National Championship Tournament (NCT) is the final round of the American Mock Trial Association's annual national tournament structure.  The NCT will host the top six teams from each of AMTA's ORCS tournaments in March. Only 48 teams will advance and compete in the National Championship Tournament.  These 48 teams will be divided into two "divisions" of 24 teams each.  The first-place teams from each will face off in AMTA's National Championship Final Round.

The NCT host will provide further logistical information regarding the tournament to those teams who earn bids to the NCT. If you have any general questions or would like any further information about the NCT round of competition, please e-mail William Warihay, chairperson of the Tournament Administration Committee.
