Many Invitational competitions allow more than TWO teams to participate at their competition. This is at the discretion of the Invitational Director – check with them to see how many teams are allowed from each school. If a school wishes to have more than TWO teams compete at an invitational, they MUST register the additional teams and pay the discounted membership fee of $110 per additional team. This fee covers the necessary National, State and Invitational affiliation fees and one manual in their division. Each Invitational will have their own required entry fee for their competition – this fee is not included in the $110 affiliation fee.
