One (1) coach and one (1) team member is not considered to be a team and cannot participate.

IV. Coaches

The minimum age of a coach in an international WRO tournament (and assistant coaches) is age 20 at the time of registration for the WRO final.

Coaches may work with more than one team; however each team needs to be assisted by a responsible adult. This person may be an assistant coach.

Coaches may offer students advice and guidance prior to the competition, however during the actual Olympiad competition, all work and preparation must be performed by the student members of the team.
