Please read: New Registration Process
Teams will be approved on a first-come, first-served basis determined by the date/time stamp when their registrations were submitted, with first registered teams taking precedence over second registered teams, and second registered teams taking precedence over third registered teams, with the goal of as many different schools participating as possible. The lone exception to this is for teams that submit registrations at any time on the first day of registration before midnight CDT; if there is not room to accommodate all such first teams, a lottery will be held to select among them, and the same for second teams and third teams. Should a lottery be necessary, teams that will participate in it will be contacted with details before it is conducted.

Eligible first registered teams will be approved to participate as soon as possible after registration. Beginning February 7, 2024, and space permitting, second registered teams will be approved to participate. Beginning February 16, 2024, and space permitting, third registered teams will be approved to participate.
Approved teams will be invoiced to pay the non-refundable $75 registration fee. Failure to pay by the invoice deadline will result in revocation of the team’s approval to play.

If teams drop out on the day of competition, second registered teams that were not previously approved that are present at the competition will be approved in registration order, followed by third registered teams, until the 32-team limit is reached.

Beginning October 2 at noon Eastern: Coaches either log-in to existing or create new accounts.  The only information needed initially is the coach, co-coach, and school information.  Coaches will not be asked (or allowed) to enter any information on the team members. 

After the team coach agrees to follow the eligibility requirements AND consents to the information in the former “Adult Consent and Media Form”, the coach can submit the school’s PREREGISTRATION.

After the coach submits the school PREREGISTRATION, the Regional Coordinator will approve the PREREGISTRATION if there is space.  An approved PREREGISTRATION secures at least one spot for a school.  Note: If the coach or co-coach is not a school employee, the school principal must complete the coach approval before PREREGISTRATION can be approved.

ONLY after the school’s PREREGISTRATION is approved, can the coach begin building their teams.

Between PREREGISTRATION approval and December 1, 2023 at 11:59 pm local time, the coach must SUBMIT their Team 1 registration.  If the coach does not submit the Team 1 registration BEFORE December 2, the school loses its reserved space. 

In order to SUBMIT a team registration, a signed “Parental Consent and Media Release Form” must be submitted for each team member – these forms are to be signed electronically by the parents/guardians. These electronic forms will be available after you enter the students’ information.

To repeat: a coach cannot submit a team registration without completed and signed parental forms.
To summarize:
Step 1: Coach submits school PREREGISTRATION to guarantee one spot for the school
Step 2: Regional Coordinator approves the PREREGISTRATION
Step 3: Coach submits team registration for Team 1 before December 2

IF an event allows 2nd and 3rd teams, coaches may work on completing the submission process for the 2nd/3rd teams any time after the PREREGISTRATION is approved. However, 2nd and 3rd teams will not be approved before December 5, 2023. There will be no “first come, first served” approvals before January 1, 2024.  If there is not enough space for all teams, second or third teams will be selected via a lottery system.  Please email the Regional Coordinator for more information.
