USACO is the computing olympiad. The chemistry people do not use that acronym.

For US Physics team, at a minimum you would need the equivalent of Physics C mechanics to get anywhere with even the preliminary exam. The emphasis is on problem solving and depth, not on lots of topics. There are sample exams at There is also a IPhO syllabus that might help you. You'll need to google for it.
