Hundreds of people are in Bay County this week for the National Christian College Athletic Association National Championships.

The tournament is being held at Hombre Golf Club. Men and womens teams from twelve schools in nine different states made their way here to compete.

This three day tournament is running Monday through Wednesday.

Robbie Willis says tournaments like these are great for the area.

"Well the economic impact that it has on the community at this time of the year - the offseason, the soft season - is just a big boost,” Willis says, “We have 125 players, coaches, family members, fans that are down here supporting them. It's just a tremendous boost to the economy this time of year."
