Teams should plan to bring along one or more volunteers in addition to the team coach to serve as:
- Moderators (the person who runs the quiz game, asking the questions and making the final decision about acceptable answers and rule-keeping). The moderator should have a good working knowledge of the Catholic faith.
- Scorekeepers (score is kept on a white board so everyone can see points are scored correctly).
- Timekeepers (rounds are time-limited to keep the quiz bowl moving).
- Door monitors (prevents people from entering or leaving during a round, to avoid distracting the players).
- Clean-up helpers.
Friends and family are welcome to come watch!
