Tournaments are not only a great way to grow personally, they also give you an opportunity to see how you measure up against students from other schools. Our students don't take a backseat to anyone, and this is one of the ways they start to realize that.

With few exceptions, the tournaments listed here are those within a three to four hour drive of Poplar Bluff. If you're wanting to go further, you can find the complete listing of ATA Tournaments at ATA Online.
