How to Help Your Team

As a team member there are a lot of things that you can do to help out besides being ready for your competitions. Many Science Olympiad teams run like a club, with officers assigned to specific tasks. Some things that you might be able to help your team with include:

  • Team Captain. The leader of the team. Team captains may set practice schedules, take attendance at practice, recruit students and organize fun activities.

  • Treasurer. The treasurer collects and records the payment of team dues, T-shirt money, lunch and snack money, etc.

  • Photographer. The team photographer takes plenty of pictures at the practices and the competitions. Many teams will have the team photographer prepare an awesome slide show of all the behind-the-scenes activities of the team for the end of the year awards banquet.

  • Web Watcher. The web watcher monitors the internet and looks for updates on competitions and tournaments, rules clarifications and other important news and new resources for the team.

  • Secretary. The team secretary keeps track of paperwork, permission slips, T-Shirt orders, etc.
