Participate in a Scrimmage
Even the Academic Decathlon® has a preseason. All around the country, dedicated coaches and Decathletes put together practice events and invite other teams to join them. Some of these scrimmages focus on one event, like Speech or Super Quiz. Others simulate an entire competition. Whether a scrimmage lasts an afternoon or a weekend, it’s a great opportunity to practice teamwork and to figure out where to focus your studies.
To find a scrimmage near you, contact your regional or state director. If your school isn't involved in the decathlon or you are a home school student check out the individual competition.
