Practice tournaments have other locations.
Registration for teams normally opens in early September, and technically is open until regional tournaments begin. Region 7 may lose a spot at the State tournament if you don't register by December.
Each team has only one official coach (often referred to as the "Head Coach"). This is the person whose name appears on the registration form sent to Science Olympiad. Teams may have as many additional assistant coaches as they wish. They are often called "Event Coaches".
As set by National policy, only 15 students may be registered to compete per team at a tournament.
You may register an "Alternate" team which can also include up to 15 students.
We don't limit the number of students who are not registered but attend to cheer on the team.
If you school becomes eligible to compete at the state tournament (usually the top ~25%) only 15 students will be allowed to compete.
It takes a large number of people to conduct an event of this magnitude. We need many volunteers to make things work. We are working to increase the number of volunteers from our community in hopes of reducing or eliminating this requirement.
You will receive an update regarding this requirement as the season progresses.
The content of the team picture is left to each individual school. You may include all team members regardless of your final registration roster.
