To participate in the White River Academic League, students must think fast and answer quickly and accurately. The competitions run from September through March. The White River team is sanctioned by the Indiana Association of School Principals. There is no curriculum and questions may come from any realm of knowledge. Membership is open to all grade levels. Students are rarely “cut” from this team and substitutes are common from quarter-to-quarter of play. Toss-up questions, bonus questions and minute rounds make up each match.
