TEAMS competitions are held at sites nationwide between February and March each year through partnerships with high school educators, universities, corporations, and professional organizations. Teams may compete at a collegiate host site, neighboring school, or their own school. All teams receive the same competition materials and are eligible for state and division rankings regardless of where they participate.
Compete at a Collegiate Host Site
Many universities across the country serve as host sites for TEAMS. Each year, host sites update their information regarding the competition date and any fees they charge to participate in the competition. During the TEAMS registration process, once a host site has updated its information, the institution's name will appear in the dropdown box as a choice for sites.

Compete at a Neighboring School
When a collegiate host site is not available, high schools and middle schools may become secondary host sites, by inviting other schools to compete at their location. Competing in an environment with other teams increases the enthusiasm and excitement of students. Secondary hosts have access to a Secondary Host Guide to help them plan their day. All answer sheets are returned to national TSA for judging.

Compete at your own School
If your team is not able to compete at a collegiate or secondary host site, you may become an onsite host and hold the competition at your own school for your own students. To do so, when you register for TEAMS, choose "Onsite Location" as the competition site. Onsite locations have access to an Onsite Location Guide to help them plan the day. All answer sheets are returned to national TSA for judging.
