Registration for the 2022-23 Season

REGISTRATION FEE. Registration for the 2022 – 2023 JBQ season begins July 1st. The cost to register is $35 per quizzer. This fee will encompass both league and district level quizzing. A late fee will be assessed after Sunday, September 1st. Churches may continue to register teams until December 31st.

TEAM ROSTERS. Teams may make changes to their team rosters until January 28th. After January 28th, all team rosters are final and will be used to create the round robins for District Finals.

 

Please note: Since the registration fee is now per quizzer, please consider creating small teams with fewer substitute quizzers.

 

OFFICIALS. Each Achiever team is required to bring two-certified officials and Rising Star (previous X-league) teams must bring at least one-certified official. Failure to bring the required amount of certified officials will result in a 10-point penalty to the offending team each round of the quizmeet. Certifications are as follows:

  • Scorekeepers: Scorekeepers must take and pass the EZ Scorekeeping test.
  • Judge & Timekeepers: Judge and timekeepers must take and pass the general officials test.
  • Quizmasters: Quizmasters must take both the general officials test and the scorekeeping test.

Please note: Effective the 2022-23 JBQ season, at least one official per achiever team must be certified and trained to be a quizmaster should they be needed at a JBQ quizmeet. It is the responsibility of the church coordinator to train the quizmasters. Ask your league coordinator about our quizmaster-in-training program.

PF Competition Schedule: Central, Southwest, South, and West Leagues

Teams in the Central, Southwest, South, and West leagues will participate in 5 league competitions. These competitions will be held once a month in September, October, November, January, and February. The Bible Fact-Pak is divided into 5 different sections. A new section is introduced each competition (one section per month) until each of the sections has been added. By February, quizzers will study and compete on all sections in the Bible Fact-Pak. The September quizmeet will not factor into final placement for District Finals.

Beginning the 2021-22 season, PF JBQ will now quiz using the NIV and NLT Bible Fact-Pak translation. Question sets for competitions will use the NLT questions, but accept NIV and NLT answers. It is expected that every team using the NIV translation understand the differences between the two question sets as some point values and questions have changed. The NIV will not longer be used in the 2023 – 2024.

Teams wishing to participate in the September quizmeet must register by September 1st–no exceptions. Please reach out to your league coordinator prior to registration so that they know how many rooms to reserve at their church location.
