Thank you for your interest in the 2019-2020 Science Olympiad season. In order to compete, the following requirements must be met:
- Register Online (see below for details)
- Pay required membership fees (see below for fee schedule)
Each team has a maximum of 15 students. There is no minimum number of students per team. The first team from each school is designated at the Varsity team, after that, JV teams can be registered. Some regionals will place limits on the number of JV teams allowed per school in order to accommodate as many schools as possible in their region.
Online registration is required. Please complete the Online Registration as soon as possible. We will use your registered contact information for communication purposes and to confirm your intention to participate in the 2019-2020 Science Olympiad season. Team member registration is not required during this process, only school and Head Coach or designated Co-Head Coach profiles are required. Once registered, Head Coaches or designated Co-Head Coaches may add additional team members to assist with personal team management.
