Form a Team
- Each competing team consists of a coach (see the Coaching Policy section for more details), at least four student members, and in addition may include one student alternate (a team of three is not eligible to compete).
- To be eligible to compete, a student must be enrolled for the current school year in grades nine, ten, eleven, or twelve at the team’s school or be participating through a student support organization (private, parochial, and home schools are eligible).
- Schools considering establishing a NOSB team should select the regional bowl closest to their home site. If the school location is equidistant between two regional bowl locations, the school may select the preferred bowl location or the bowl location that has availability for new teams.
