Form a Team
Destination Imagination is entirely team based. Student teams must have between 2 and 7 members, and students in grades K-12 and University can all participate!
The first step is to designate a Team Manager: someone who is 18 or older and has agreed to volunteer their time to organize, supervise, and mentor a team of students. To officially form a New York DI team, a Team Manager must complete the following steps:
Step 2: Complete the Background Check
Before you can start working as a team, Team Managers must complete the DI background check, which is included in the cost of your Team Kit. You will be prompted via email to complete a background check when you purchase your Team Kit.
Step 3: Register for a Regional Tournament & Instant Challenge Events
If your team wants to compete in DI tournaments or at Instant Challenge Events this season, you will receive information about these opportunities and registration deadlines via email.
Once we register our team, then what?
Then the fun begins! New York DI teams typically meet at least once a week after school to tackle the Challenge of their choice, practice Instant Challenges, and prepare props, sets, costumes, movies, science projects, or anything else to meet the Challenge requirements. The Challenges themselves will answer a lot of your questions and guide your team!
