For Coaches

Texas has two regional NOSB competitions, the Dolphin Challenge and the Loggerhead Challenge. Schools in the northern part of the state compete in the Dolphin Challenge, held in Galveston, and schools from the southern part of the state compete in the Loggerhead Challenge in the Coastal Bend. The competitions take place in February or March of each year. You can find a PDF with several tips on how to form a team here.

Registration for the 2017 Dolphin Challenge will open in the fall. Additional information, including a link to register online, will be available here at that time.
