College Class AA Tournament
“I would agree that the atmosphere of a college tournament is much different for new teams than a regular tournament. That is what has drawn interest in tournaments for some of our memebers, the more relaxed atmosphere. It is great to have a tournament that appeals to both experienced players and tournament newbies.”

- Proposed Event
ALL players on a college team must be full-time students admitted to a degree program (associate, bachelors, masters or doctorate) at the same college or university during the semester in which they are competing. Continuing education, advanced placement, high school affiliate courses, and other courses not taken as part of a degree program do not count towards full-time student status. There are limited exceptions for coops, internships, military duty, and a student’s final semester prior to earning a degree. Any of these exceptions must be cleared with the NCPA in advance. Teams who list ineligible players on their roster will be disqualified. The NCPA will verify a student’s status through the school’s admissions office. It is the team’s responsibility to certain that all players are eligble.
As of September 2012, the field layout for every Class A, Class AA, and High School event must be an NCPA Official or PSP Official layout.
Rules and Format
All Class AA events are 5-man. NCPA Class AA Rules. Our rules are based on the PSP RaceTo-2 ruleset with some modifications, so please be sure to read carefully.
ALL college teams may attend any Class AA event. You are not limited to only attending events in your “conference”. Pricing subject to change; it almost always goes down.
Register For Events
ALL teams must sign up online for ALL NCPA events. The NCPA uses the APPA player ID system to provide a more convenient and useful registration process. Each player must get a player ID number. Once your team captain has their ID number (one captain per school) they can register your team for events. ALL of your players must be on your roster prior to play. Use the links below to register:
Pay For Events
ALL teams must pay for ALL NCPA events online. If your school needs an invoice or must pay by check or purchase order email email@example.com. To pay your registration fee for an event, after you have signed up, select the event from the event list and then click on the “Buy Now” button next to your team to pay.
Registration Payment Deadlines
Payment for events is due 10 days prior to the event date. The entry fee will increase $25 after that time. The entry fee will increase another $25 (a total increase of $50) 4 days prior to the event. The increase is to encourage teams to financially commit to attending events in a timely manner while still allowing teams to pay late under exceptional circumstances.
For Class AA tournaments, if a team is unable to attend a tournament, you may be able to receive a refund. If you notify us (via email to firstname.lastname@example.org) prior to the event’s first registration deadline (usually 10 days prior to the event) your entry fee will be refunded in full. If you notify us between the 1st and 2nd deadlines, your entry fee will be refunded minus a $25 processing fee. If you notify us after the second deadline but at least two days prior to the event, your entry fee will be refunded minus a $50 processing fee. Entry fees are not refundable less than two days prior to an event.
