team registration


Register SOON for the March 7, 2020 Science Olympiad!

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.

4649 Whetstone Road, Manlius, New York 13104-2516.

** Note - your school will not be officially registered until the fee is received at the SciOly office.

  • A school may register up to 3 teams.
  • A separate fee is paid for each team ($225 per team).
  • Use the name of the school - not the number.
  • Use designations A, B and C after each team.
  • For example, your registered name might be Washington Team A, and not M.S. 47.

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!

Registered Teams

Please note your team number!

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 SciOly Office.  As soon as teams are registered, they will be listed here. 

If you are thinking of registering and want more information (and know someone from one of these teams) feel free to speak with them, or just call me at 631-664-7885 or e-mail

Required Forms

Additional Information

Forms needed for the competition can be found on the State website (once here, click on Tournament Forms and Certificates at the top). The State is asking you go directly here as Regions are no longer permitted to post forms. They are updated yearly, so please click on the link above to get the following forms:

  • Final Student Registration form (one for each TEAM, not school)
  • Medical form (one for each STUDENT and will be held by the coaches)
  • Publicity form (one for each STUDENT)
  • Tournament Signature Form Code of Conduct and Academic Dishonesty (one for each TEAM, not school)
  • Vandalism form (one for each SCHOOL)

And if you plan on bringing Alternates, these forms are specifically for them (in addition to the above Medical and Publicity forms):

  • Regional Alternate Student Registration form (one per TEAM for Alternates attached to that team)
  • Alternate Signature Form Code of Conduct and Academic Dishonesty  (one per TEAM for Alternates attached to that team)

You must have all forms completed and submitted to compete!

Day of Event Registration - All teams, event supervisors, and volunteers will register at tournament headquarters in Grover Cleveland HS inside room 227 (on the second floor).


Coach's Meetings

Additional Information

Please make sure you attend one of the upcoming meetings:

Wednesday, January 8 - 3:30 pm - about 5:00 pm

* Hawthorne MS 74, 61-15 Oceania St (south of the intersection of the LIE)

Thursday, January 9 - 3:45 pm - about 5:00 pm

* The Buckley School  - 112 E. 73 St  2nd floor.  Note that there is no signage on the building.

If at least one of the coaches cannot attend (feel free to send more than one) you must send an administrator, another coach, a parent or a friend. Penalty points will be deducted from teams that do not send representatives at one of the meetings (25 points and that can make a big difference!)


Event Sign-Ups

About one month before Regionals ...

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 Thermodynamics or Machines), 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: Boomilever, Elastic Launched Glider, Mission Possible, Mousetrap Vehicle, Ping Pong Parachutes and Simple Machines. You will be sent an e-mail sometime around the first week of February 2020 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!
