May 2022

Reach for the Top has experienced a year of continued game play both virtually on-line and in person. With the variety of social protocols among schoolboards across the country, many leagues continued with on line play while others were able to return to in person tournaments.

The National Finals that took place on the final weekend in May, saw teams from across the country playing in real time from their homes and schools situated in four time zones.

2021 National Finals – 55th Edition

May 2021

Reach for the Top has experienced a year of operation like no other. Our game has reinvented itself and survived the pandemic lockdowns. Tournaments through the entire academic year were played on line, as were all Provincial Finals.

The National Finals that took place on the final week- end in May, saw teams from across the country playing in real time from their home computers and other de- vices situated in four time zones. Director of Operations Daniel Hill assembled a staff of readers, judges and technical operators to make this happen. Interviews with students and staff were livestreamed to our Youtube channel as was the final Championship game.
