Registration deadline is January 13, 2024

We hope everyone is having a great Odessey year! Your regional board has finalized our tournament plans for the 2023-24 program year.

For this year, both the Catoctin (R14) and Dulles (R16) regional tournaments will be held on February 24, 2024, at Tuscarora High School.

Although the tournaments will be run concurrently at a single time and location, they will be considered separate events, with separate scoring for each region. Each region will send winners on to the state competition as usual. At the end of the day, there will be a single award ceremony where winners in each region will be announced.

In case of inclement weather, we have also reserved a snow date of March 16. Teams should keep both dates in mind in planning team, judge, and volunteer availability.

Tournament registration

Tournament registration is now open at the website. Registration pricing is $115 per team.

Please be sure that your judge and volunteer are also registered. Teams, judges, and volunteers can all register by going to “LOGIN” on the site’s main menu. Remember that each team must provide a judge and a volunteer to support the tournament. Your judge will need to attend a half day of training on February 10 and be present all day for the tournament. Your volunteer will only be committed to a two-hour shift on tournament day and will not be required to participate in any training.

As always, please contact your regional co-directors at with any questions.
