Invitational Tournaments

Schools sometimes run practice tournaments, independent from VASO, called "Invitationals". These are optional tournaments that teams may choose to attend to give them more practice at the events or to have more competition experience. You must have completed your VASO registration to attend these tournaments, which are held all over the US. Note, though, that Invitationals do typically require their own registration fee and each Invitational determines its own criteria for participating, schedule, and slate of events to run.


Events are Out

Sept 13, 2014

VASO is announcing the event list and schedule for its 2015 tournaments. Note that a new Fairfax county policy may restrict us from running the Bottle Rocket event in Division B. We are awaiting a ruling on that and will notify teams as soon as we know. If we must drop the event, VASO will NOT substitute another event for it.
