ASO Team Coach Requirements

One Coach, One Team

Science Olympiad does not certify coaches. We accept any adult that the school accepts as a coach. It does not have to be a teacher or an administrator of the school. It could be a parent or a community member. Each school may have different requirements for coaches.

Each team must have a coach. One person cannot coach more than one team. The coach must sign the team in on tournament day registration and is the only person who may speak to an event judge concerning rules, participation in the event, file an appeal or go to arbitration.
