National TEAMS Competitions
Descriptions for all three national TEAMS competitions are now posted on the TEAMS national conference page. All teams that have qualified for the national TEAMS competitions (those that achieved the minimum score as well as those who placed 1st, 2nd or 3rd in the state overall competition) are eligible to compete in the TEAMS national competitions.

National Conference Information
The TEAMS national competitions occur during the national TSA conference. Expected total attendance at the conference (being held in Atlanta, GA) is 8,000. Approximately 1,000 of those will be in attendance to compete in the national TEAMS competitions.

TEAMS Conference Schedule
Make sure to reference the information on the TEAMS national conference page. The information on that page is specifically for TEAMS. The tentative schedule for TEAMS attendees is found on that page.

Conference registration process
The school-year coach username and password is needed in order to register a team for national competition. If the school-year coach is not attending the conference, he/she may list another adult as the acting coach during the conference registration process. All students who are competing must be registered by May 21st. Guests may be registered at the same time as student competitors, or they may register separately by choosing the “Other Attendees - TEAMS Guest” option. All who attend the conference – students, teachers, parents and other guests – must register for the conference.
 
If you are a TSA advisor who is also bringing TEAMS participants, please use these directions for conference registration.
 
Competition Venue
The national TEAMS competitions will be held at the Westin Peachtree Plaza Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia. Some conference activities will also be held at the Georgia World Congress Center. Sleeping rooms for TEAMS participants are at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis. Complimentary shuttle service is provided.

Conference Hotel
A block of rooms at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis ($189 per night plus applicable taxes and fees) has been reserved for those attending the conference who are competing in the TEAMS competition. TEAMS attendees are required to stay for the following three nights – June 22, 23 and 24. TEAMS attendees must use the TEAMS Hotel Link when registering (this is the preferred method), or call (404) 521-0000 and identify your reservation as TEAMS. Using the link or identifying your reservation as “TEAMS” allows you to book for only three nights. Complimentary shuttle bus service is provided. 
 
A $200.00 per person fee will be assessed by TSA, Inc. from any TEAMS conference attendee who does not stay at a national TSA conference property on 6/22, 6/23, and 6/24. This policy is not implemented once the hotel sleeping room block has been sold out and has been authorized by National TSA. Those living within a twenty-five mile radius of Atlanta, Georgia are exempt from this policy. 

Thank you for your participation in TEAMS.
