The Northern Florida Regional is a regional tournament hosted at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida. It serves the state's Leon, Wakulla, Jefferson, Madison, Taylor, Dixie, Hamilton, Lafayette, Suwannee, Columbia, Baker, Duval, Nassau, Clay, Alachua, Marion, Levy, Gilchrist, Union, and Bradford counties. The regional has been hosted for several years, starting at Florida Gateway College in Lake City, Florida before moving to the University of Florida for the 2018 season. While the tournament has always had a prominent number of Division B teams, it quite frequently had very few Division C teams or even none at all, in certain years. However, in the 2019 season, there was a significant rise in the number of Division C teams attending the regional, with 14 teams participating in that season. It has never held any trial events and has frequently not held a small, variable number of events.

The current Division B champion is the River City Science Academy, which has remained the champion of the tournament since 2016. At the state tournament, River City, does very well, and has qualified for the national tournament in 2018 and 2019. The current Division C champion is James S. Rickards High School, a school which has never won this tournament before.
