The competition will be open to all SWCC students and surrounding High School students. Each team will be composed of four players. Once we have all the teams signed up we will form a bracket. You will be given a certain time to show up and then hopefully begin your way to the championship. The top two college teams will be given the opportunity to represent SWCC at the Iowa Community College Halo3 tournament, which we will be hosting later in the spring. We will be looking for the best players so form your teams soon!
