Schools sometimes run practice tournaments, independent from VASO, called "Invitationals". These are optional tournaments that teams may choose to attend to give them more practice at the events or to have more competition experience. You must have completed your VASO registration to attend these tournaments, even out-of-state ones, and you may only register up to the same number of teams for an Invitational as teams you have registered with VASO. Note, also, that Invitationals do typically require their own registration fee and each Invitational determines its own criteria for participating, schedule, and slate of events to run.
