Competition Details

Current Schedule for the 2012 National Tournament.  The event times are final, but the event locations are subject to change.  Self Schedule Registration System will open on May 2, 2012 at 3:00 pm, Eastern TimeSchedule Conflicts: Teams are not allowed to make schedule swaps with other teams and supervisors are not permitted to grant any time changes in the posted team schedule. The national tournament schedule is set with no exceptions allowed for individual team conflicts. Almost all the the teams coming to the national tournament have conflicts to work around since the state schedule is rarely identical to the national schedule. Supervisors are encouraged to allow late students to enter if it does not disrupt the event, but no extra time will be granted. So, wherever possible, avoid scheduling a student in back-to-back events.
