This year our tournament will be hosted on Saturday, January 21, 2017.  If you would like to participate in our tournament, please first review our tournament policies and the notes below. Then when the form opens at 1 PM ET on September 14, 2016, register for the MIT Science Olympiad Invitational Tournament at this link: Registration Form. Only team coaches may register their school’s team(s). Schools that need an invoice may access templates here: 1 team, 2 teams.

Please note that due to the high demand we experienced last year, we are making some changes in our registration policy to allow more schools the chance to compete. Teams’ places in the tournament will still be reserved in the order we receive the online registration, and schools may still register up to two teams.  However, this year, only the first 15 schools which register two teams will receive reserved spaces for both teams. Schools which register later may still register two teams, but only one spot will be reserved.  The second team will be placed on a waitlist.

Head coaches should receive a confirmation email after submitting the registration form.  If the head coach has not received a confirmation email within 48 hours, please email to confirm that your registration was successful.

Reserved spaces will be held pending payment of the registration fee ($120 per team, paid by check) until November 7, 2016.  If a team has been placed on the waitlist, please do not pay the registration fee until you receive confirmation that your team has been accepted off the waitlist. Teams whose payment is not received by November 7 will forfeit their place to a team on the waitlist.  Please contact us at if meeting the payment deadline may pose a problem for your school.
