California MathCounts

Due to the size and population of the state of California, California MathCounts is broken up into two sites: one in northern California and one in southern California. The California state MathCounts team is made up of the top four students during the written round of the state competition.


The California team is usually among the top teams at the national competition and has won eight national championships (1986, 1992, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2010, 2011 and 2014), more than any other team. Usually the majority of the California team is from the North because that includes the Bay Area.
