Tournament directors are university officials, community members, dedicated volunteers, and Science Olympiad alumni who host, manage, and oversee regional tournaments.
Ohio Science Olympiad tournament directors make every effort to provide a challenging and engaging experience for all participants. This page provides resources to better assist with tournament planning, event practices, and consistent execution throughout the state.
Tournament directors have a responsibility to ensure to the best of their ability that each participating team at any Invitational, Regional or State Tournament is a certified member of the Science Olympiad national program. If multiple teams (JV/Alternate/etc.) from the same school are allowed at your Invitational or Regional, each team must be registered with a state office

Additional Tournament Director Resources
Many of our partners are association or employee-based programs that encourage members to perform service. For example, the Academy of Model Aeronautics has an online search function that connects schools with volunteers for model flight events. Tournament directors, please reference these groups for help with corresponding events.
