In order for any team to participate in any competition, all the school registration requirements must have been fulfilled by the School Registration Deadline. Schools that wish to participate in the online scrimmages must complete all school registration requirements by the Early Registration Deadline. (Note that for the October Scrimmage, team rosters are due prior to the deadline for participation fees and school registration materials.) Please refer to 2017-18 School Registration Deadlines for more information on school registration requirements and deadlines.
A Team Roster Template that includes all competing students needs to be submitted for each team in your school before each competition. Changes to the roster will not be permitted after the competition registration deadline as a measure to ensure fair and accurate scores. Only 3 honors, 3 scholastic and 3 varsity students are permitted on each team. Each school may have more than one team. Partial teams will be accepted. Remember to place students in Honors, Scholastic, and Varsity by ID number (001-009) on the roster. Please submit the form electronically in excel format to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before the following:
