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.

Tournament Schedule Posted
Sept 24, 2013
See our event page for the tournament schedule.
How to read the schedule: Students cannot participate in more than one event per time period. Teams will be assigned randomly to either group "A" or "B" for the tournament. Note, though, that the event conflicts are the same for whichever group teams are assigned to. Also, teams in each group may only sit for their event in the appropriate time period (ex. "A" teams will not be allowed in "B" time periods and vice versa).
Design and Construction Policies
Aug 1, 2013
VASO will be strictly adhering to its stated construction and design policies - participants and coaches must be familiar with these as they begin work on their building events. All the pertinent policies will be listed on each applicable event page.
If teams have invitational tournaments that they recommend, we will be happy to put links for them on this page.
