It’s also a good time to review your Challenge, the Rules of the Road, and any Published Clarifications.  You should start completing your Tournament Data Forms.  

Tournament Enrollment

Please remember that you may not enroll in the Showcase until your Team Registration is complete.

Team Check-In

All teams must pick up their packet at check-in before proceeding to their tournament venue. There will also be a form checker there to help you determine that you have the correct paperwork for your Challenge.

It is not necessary for the entire team to go to Check-In. Younger teams should come with a Team Manager and one Team Member.  Older teams can just send one Team Member.

Each Challenge has its own requirements concerning when teams must report to the Prep Area. Consult the Travel Guide for Teams for details.

Central Challenge

Teams, supporters and spectators are all encouraged to see as many Central Challenge performances as possible. Come early, stay late, and support as many teams as you can.

Instant Challenge

Please note that Instant Challenge is not open to spectators. Only the Team and a single Team Manager may enter the Instant Challenge area. Teams are not allowed to discuss their experience in Instant Challenge with anyone outside the team until after Global Finals.


There will NOT be food available for purchase at the event site. There are many restaurants just a short drive away or that will deliver pizza or other food or you may pack your own food. It is your responsibility to make your own arrangements for food for your team.

Awards Ceremony

The Awards Ceremony will take place starting at approximately 12:00pm.
