High School Science Bowl Coaching Information

January 25, 2020

Online team registration opens October 1, 2019 - watch for details 

There is a 40-team limit for this event--and it fills up fast. Interested coaches will want to have students in mind before the registration site opens. Schools whose applications are received after the roster is filled will be placed on a waiting list.

Hints, tips and tricks:

  • Registration opens on October 1. Any coach or team data entered into the system PRIOR to the launch date and time will e deleted.
  • Plan ahead!  Form your team and gather the following information from each student:
    • First and last name
    • Gender
    • Grade
    • Birth month/year
    • Student's home Zip Code
    • T-shirt size
    • Citizenship
  • A school can register up to three teams, Team 1 (first team), Team 2 (second team), and Team 3 (third team), as soon as the registration period opens. Teams will be approved on a first-come, first-served basis determined by the date/time stamp when their registration was submitted, with first teams taking precedence over second teams, and second teams taking precedence over third teams, with the goal of as many different schools participating as possible.
