My school has Sci Oly as a class but I don't like it because my school has grouped it with Academic Decathalon, so if you take the class you have to do Ac Dec as well. I also hate the idea of Sci Oly as a class because with how my school has it, there is no way to weed out those that think the class will be an easy A. For example I know there is one kid in the class that is only in it so he can be a butterfly to me at the comps, he doesn't give a crap about the comp. We meed either two or three times a week, it depends on the week, with how the school's scheduel is. I however am lucky because this school year the Sci Oly class and AP Calculus are the same class period so I actually do Sci Oly as an independent study hour during the school day.

We meet for about 2 1/2 hours a week after school, if we're lucky (i.e. no conflicts or anything).

We've got two small homeschool teams, a B and a C. We meet once a month before Christmas and twice a month afterwards. These meetings are 3 hours long. We also have informal study sessions on Fridays (about twice a month before new years and weekly afterwards) that are 3 hours long. Additionally, the kids working together meet at someone's house now and then.

Regionals is Saturday so we're cramming right now!

i practice every day after school for usually 2+ hours and then spend 4-8 hours each weekend day.

But i do all building events so it requires a ton of work. :D

No matter what the experiment's result, there will always be someone eager to:(a) misinterpret it(b) fake it, or (c) believe it supports his own pet theory.

We have no organized practices. People stay after school quite a bit, but nothing is required. We have a fairly responsible and dedicated team, so it works well for us.
