TSA is a non-profit organization. The competition registration fees are predetermined based upon an analysis of all expenditures necessary to make the national TEAMS competitions a worthwhile and positive experience for all who attend. Competition registration fees cover various expense categories, including competition supplies, such as ID badges, ribbons, and competition awards (trophies, certificates, etc.); competition special events and facilities; and other related expenses, such as insurance and security.


Anyone who attends the 2023 National TEAMS Competitions must register, including parents, children, and any other guests. Throughout the competitions, volunteer hosts check the name badges of all attendees. There will be no admittance to any event, including the awards ceremony on July 2nd, without a name badge.
