The 2016 North American SCRABBLE Championship will include a sixth annual Early Bird tournament, which will again be a NASPA-rated event. This tournament offers a playing opportunity to a group of players who can play in fewer SCRABBLE tournaments than others: NASC staff and other NASPA directors. The event will take place in the main tournament playing room, and will be directed by John Chew.

Chew pairings will be in effect (with no fixed initial schedule), with Gibsonization. No division will have more than 16 players.
