Those who qualify for TNT

  • TNT fees along with the church registration spreadsheet will be due February 12th

  • Midsouth is still allowed to have two teams per sport along with two participants per category at TNT.



  • How much extra money should I bring? The only meals covered under the Momentum fees are Saturday lunch and dinner. Each church can decide what is appropriate for their students to cover other meals. Keep in mind there will be concessions sold and Momentum/Trevecca merch for purchase.

  • What if I come with my youth group and I’m not competing…do I have to pay? Yes, the cost is $15.

  • If I’m a youth pastor or a youth sponsor, do I have to pay? Yes, the cost is $15.

  • What if I only submitted something online for the Arts, can I still come to the sports day? YES

  • If I am a coach/director of a tournament do I have to pay? No

  • What if I’m leaving early from the event…do I have to pay the full amount? Yes.

  • Will there be concessions for purchase? Yes.

  • How many events can I participate in? (See “Note for Momentum” on page 1 of “Registration Form”)

  • Can I turn my form into my youth pastor without notary signature or any other blank information? NOOOOO. Every part of the form must be complete. The form was not created with suggested blanks for information …we need all the information. Thank you! 

  • Will those competing in sports receive numbered bibs again? Yes. Every athlete will wear a numbered bib (like race numbers for runners) to help identify them to the coaches. This was very effective in organizing the sports and selecting players for TNT, servant-leadership awards and all-stars. Plan to wear them while you compete…and don’t lose them.

  • What if I don’t have enough players from my church to have a full team at Momentum? Can I/we still compete? At the beginning of each event, the coach/director will create the teams as well as the tournament bracket. It will be imperative you show up when your event begins to join a team..

  • Can I record this alone in my room? Performances should be in front of a live audience (preferably more than your family,) but ANYTHING is better than just you alone in your room (please don’t record yourself alone in your room)

  • How do I record my presentation? Pieces will be judged on content and not video quality, iPhones work great! Treat your recordings like you would a Momentum performance, wear what you’d like to wear for your instrumental solo whatever.

  • How do I submit my artwork or photography? Artwork & photography must be mailed (or dropped off) to TCC (if it something that won’t mail easily we recommend you don’t submit that piece. All pieces must be postmarked by January 11th.

  • How do I get my artwork back? Art and judging results will be available for pick up at Momentum

  • How do I submit my video files? Go to the url Title mp4 files: category_lastname_firstname

  • How am I getting my medal?  After the virtual award ceremony medals will be mailed out to churches in one package per-church.

  • When do I need to wear a mask? Masks are required inside all buildings except for when students are actively engaged in their competition (i.e. on the court) those on the bench must be wearing masks. Masks are expected to be worn at all times (even outdoors) except for when actively engaging in competitions (i.e. on the field or court). Those sitting on the bench are expected to wear their masks.
