The Wisconsin State Invitational Championship Tournament ("WSICT") is an annual event for 5th through 8th grade teams, played between late February and mid-April. All teams invited to the WSICT for the first time are contacted in the fall and winter before the next spring's events. Teams that played competitively in the WSICT the previous year and are in compliance with all tournament rules regarding All Tournament Team ballots, liability waivers/concussion agreements, eligibility requirements, etc., are extended invitations in late October to early November for the WSICT events the next spring.
For the teams that do not qualify, either because they aren't sufficiently strong, or are not true high school feeder teams as provided for by our eligibility rules.
The fee to play in the WSICT for 2020 will be $345 for all teams, with six games guaranteed (some teams will play seven). Your entry fee covers the cost of officials, printing (programs, admission wrist band, and mailings), postage, awards, website construction and maintenance, phone calls and human resources. While the host community at each grade level retains all profits from concessions and admission sales, they have an enormous organizational job in terms of volunteer hours to help serve between 80-100 teams and host 250-300 games.
To apply for the 2020 WSICT, teams must submit these two items:
The completed Enrollment Form and
A check in the amount of $345 made payable to "WSICT"
If we do not receive both of these items, team's application will not be processed. We will ask for additional information (roster, etc., once your team is accepted into the field. Each season a small number of teams miss out on a spot in this event after adding it to their team calendars, making hotel reservations and planning to attend because a coach forgot to send in the application and fee.
