Check here for future updates on upcoming invitational tournaments:

Science Olympiad Invitational Tournaments allow Science Olympiad teams to participate in tournaments that do not impact regional or state advancement or rankings, but are often used as tryouts for team members and as preparation for teams that compete in regional, state or national tournaments. 

Across the country, many middle and high schools host these events to give teams a chance to perfect their devices, get a feel for the difficulty level of tests and labs, and see a real tournament in action. Sometimes, just being there to observe gives a coach the inside track to better coach a Science Olympiad team. Every little bit of context helps!
