Team Managers should begin their tournament day by going to the Registration Table in the lobby. As the registration area easily becomes congested and can keep the team from being registered on time, please do not bring your team with you to the Registration Table. If your team’s Team Challenge performance is earlier in the day, team members and helpers can begin the unloading of props. If your team’s Instant Challenge is scheduled first, the team members can simply get oriented around the building or can start getting mentally prepped for Instant Challenge while registration is being completed. Please make prior arrangements with everyone attending with your team to meet you elsewhere in the area get the most up-to-date information for your tournament day!

Competition Sites

Be sure to arrive at your site's Prep Area 20 minutes before your Presentation Time.

For Instant Challenge, check-in 15 minutes before your scheduled IC time.

Note about doors: While the doorways into some sites could be double doors, sometimes there are divider bars or exit doors that limit the door opening size. Teams should be prepared to fit their props/scenery/etc. through a single door.

Enjoy the most of your day!

After your team completes all aspects of their competition or during breaks between Challenges, we invite them to enjoy the day and support other teams!

Tournament programs (including maps and complete schedule) will be available at the Registration Table. There will be volunteers familiar with the building and with DI at this table throughout the day to answer general questions and contact the Tournament Director if needed. If you need first aid assistance, we will have basic first aid supplies available at the Information table.

Team Managers: Approximately 30 min after your team finishes their Team Challenge performance, your team's raw scores should be available to pick up at your performance site.  In order to pick these up, the Challenge Master can meet with, and ONLY with, one team member and one Team Manager.  The Challenge Master will review the scores with these two individuals and then hand the scores to them.  At that point, the Team Manager and team member can take the scores back to their team to look them over as a group.  We suggest you find a place where your team can be alone to talk about how they did. Of course, your team will have a great time reading all the sticky notes and building on your successes for next time!

Only scores for your Team Challenge are given out.  All Instant Challenge scores are kept confidential until final scores are posted.

All final scores (including Instant Challenge and scaled Team Challenge scores) will be posted in the gym and auditorium lobbies immediately after the Awards Ceremony - please bring paper and pencil to copy scores, or take a picture with your phone – do NOT take scores off the wall! We will also try to post scores online within 24 hours!

(For more detailed information about how scoring works in Destination Imagination, please see the Rules of the Road.)


Team managers, please review the procedures for Appeals in the event you are unsure about your Team Challenge scores. The Challenge Master for each Challenge will be at our Tournament to help interpret scores and explain them fully.
