There are no fees.  Also, we allow 5 players to play simultaneously (not 4 as in official Science Bowl rules).  Both of these are meant to encourage more players from more schools to join the competition.  All we ask is that everyone bring their best sportsmanship manners.

Please read: New Registration Process

Beginning October 2 at noon Eastern: Coaches either log-in to existing or create new accounts.  The only information needed initially is the coach, co-coach, and school information.  Coaches will not be asked (or allowed) to enter any information on the team members. 

After the team coach agrees to follow the eligibility requirements AND consents to the information in the former “Adult Consent and Media Form”, the coach can submit the school’s PREREGISTRATION.

After the coach submits the school PREREGISTRATION, the Regional Coordinator will approve the PREREGISTRATION if there is space.  An approved PREREGISTRATION secures at least one spot for a school.  Note: If the coach or co-coach is not a school employee, the school principal must complete the coach approval before PREREGISTRATION can be approved.

ONLY after the school’s PREREGISTRATION is approved, can the coach begin building their teams.

Between PREREGISTRATION approval and December 1, 2023 at 11:59 pm local time, the coach must SUBMIT their Team 1 registration.  If the coach does not submit the Team 1 registration BEFORE December 2, the school loses its reserved space. 

In order to SUBMIT a team registration, a signed “Parental Consent and Media Release Form” must be submitted for each team member – these forms are to be signed electronically by the parents/guardians. These electronic forms will be available after you enter the students’ information.

To repeat: a coach cannot submit a team registration without completed and signed parental forms.
To summarize:
Step 1: Coach submits school PREREGISTRATION to guarantee one spot for the school
Step 2: Regional Coordinator approves the PREREGISTRATION
Step 3: Coach submits team registration for Team 1 before December 2

IF an event allows 2nd and 3rd teams, coaches may work on completing the submission process for the 2nd/3rd teams any time after the PREREGISTRATION is approved. However, 2nd and 3rd teams will not be approved before December 5, 2023. There will be no “first come, first served” approvals before January 1, 2024.  If there is not enough space for all teams, second or third teams will be selected via a lottery system.  Please email the Regional Coordinator for more information.
