The North Kansas City Junior Varsity Tournament is an annual tournament held by North Kansas City.


Earlier iterations of the tournament were run on the same day as NKC's Varsity tournament in a four-quarter format. In the 2006-2007 and 2007-2008 seasons, the JV tournament was held separately in November. The tournament used single-elimination playoffs until the retirement of coach Larry Allen after the 2009-2010 season.

In the 2008-2009 season, the tournament was held in conjunction with the Varsity tournament on January 17, 2009. The tournament used games consisting of two halves of 8 tossups/bonuses from NAQT IS-82A (which the Varsity division was using in the 20 tossup/bonus format) with a presumably housewritten worksheet [1]. The next season, the tournament switched to the twenty tossup-bonus format, mirroring the Fall Novice Tournament in November.

Since the November 2011 iteration, the tournament has mirrored various novice sets (usually SCOP Novice) using pooled preliminary rounds followed by rebracketing into playoff and consolation pools, meaning this tournament has consistently offered 7-9 rounds to all teams using good questions and a fair schedule longer than any other Kansas City area tournament. Consolation rounds were not offered after the 7 preliminary rounds in 2013 and were announced as optional in 2015. After Pat O'Keefe took over as head coach in fall 2016, participating teams are now expected to compete in scheduled consolation rounds to ensure all teams are guaranteed 8-9 rounds of competition and to keep afternoon scheduling predictable, bringing the tournament in line with other MOQBA tournaments.
