Teams’ places in the tournament are reserved on a first come, first served basis, provided that the registration fee is received by Golden Gate Science Olympiad by the payment deadline. Teams whose payment is not received by that deadline will forfeit their place to a team on the waitlist. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if meeting the payment deadline may pose a problem for your school.
The Golden Gate Science Olympiad Invitational Tournament is a Division C competition. All teams must conform to the Science Olympiad Division C membership rules. All students on each team must be eligible to compete for that team as per the eligibility rules specified on soinc.org.
All participating students must fill out several waivers and liability releases, which will be distributed to participating teams shortly after registration.
Schools must be registered with their home state Science Olympiad organization (and must have paid all applicable state and national fees) prior to competing in the Golden Gate Science Olympiad Invitational Tournament.
No team or team coach will be asked to write a test or supervise an event. All events will be run by Science Olympiad alumni, and all tests and answer keys will be made available to teams after the competition.
Golden Gate Science Olympiad Invitational will make every attempt to adhere closely to the current year National Science Olympiad event schedule.
Unless otherwise stated, the Golden Gate Science Olympiad Invitational Tournament will follow all rules as stated in the printed national rule book and national event clarifications posted here. We will follow all rules and clarifications published by the National Science Olympiad organization.
For events for which the printed national rule book specifies different rules or content for different levels of competition, the Golden Gate Science Olympiad Invitational Tournament will follow the rules specified for the regional tournament level.
