When registration opens on the NY State site, you will sign up, receive an acknowledgement email, print it out and mail it in with fee to:
New York State Science Olympiad, Inc.
1111 Elton Avenue
Schenectady, New York 12309-3607
** Note - your school will not be officially registered until the fee is received at the SciOly office.
A team may have up to 15 students - but with as few as 5 - and of those 15, you may have a maximum of five (5) 9th graders on the team. You may also register 2 "team specific alternates" for each team. In other words, if Mary Frank is a B team alternate, she may not participate with Team A. (Alternates may compete only in Trial events. More on that under Events.)
Timely registration is absolutely essential! The number of medals we can award for each event depends on the number of teams registered by late November. The more teams register, the more medals we can award!
Questions? Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Teams often begin the registration process early, but remember, your team is not considered "registered" until the fee has been paid, and I have been notified of receipt by the State Science Olympiad Office.
If you have any questions, call me at 631-664-7885 or e-mail email@example.com.

You must submit all forms to compete!
Day of Event Registration - All teams, event supervisors, and volunteers will register as you enter the cafeteria. In addition, Event Supervisors will pick up their Event Folders at this time (or they may wait until right before their event to do so from Room 227.
Once again this year, the Coach's Meeting is going to be done via Zoom. The date is Wednesday, January 5, 2022 at 7pm. Please keep this date open as it is important to get all updates and to avoid a 25 point penalty for not showing up. One representative for each school needs to attend (two would be even better). This penalty will be imposed on each school team competing.
Events Sign-Ups work like this - Teams compete in academic events at assigned times based on the number assigned to them. These events are in 3 "time blocks" that prevent any schedule conflict. But for builds and hybrid events (having both an academic and a building component, such as Sounds of Music for 2022), it is slightly different. For these events, teams must sign up for times they choose on their own. The reason for this is because it allows teams to schedule students where needed. This year's sign-up events will be:
You will be sent an e-mail sometime around the first week of February 2022 with the sign up link and letting you know the exact date & time the sign ups will open. When you get the e-mail, don't dilly-dally, spots fill up quickly!
