Team Registration & Approval Guidelines

Middle School: The competition is limited to 24 teams. First teams will be accepted and notified by email. Up to 3 teams per school may register.


October 2nd – Registration Opens at Noon for Middle School Teams

Coaches may preregister their schools without having to identify the students who will be on their team(s). Approved schools (those with an employee coach or principal approval) will be guaranteed a spot for TEAM ONE at their Regional.

Pre-Registration Period

Coaches Finalize Teams, Collect Team Info & Upload Consent Forms. Coaches will have until 12/1/23 to enter and collect student data, upload consent forms, and add co-coaches without fear of losing their TEAM ONE spot.

Deadline to Submit Full Registration Including All Forms & Student Info

A coach cannot submit a team registration until all required student forms have been approved and/or uploaded by the coach. Failure to submit by 11:59 pm on December 1 may result in the team losing their spot.

First Teams Will Be Approved

Regional Coordinators will begin approving TEAM ONE submission on Tuesday, December 5.

When Can I Register a Second & Third Team?

If second & third teams are permitted at a given regional, coaches may upload their additional teams and student information during the preregistration period.

However, the second and third teams will NOT be approved until after Tuesday, December 19, 2023 and will NOT be chosen on a first-come, first-served basis. Again-no need to rush!

On Tuesday, December 19, 2023 or later, if space permits, second team may be approved. If all second teams cannot be approved, Regional Coordinator will use a DOE-approved random selection process.

Beginning 3 weeks prior to the regional event or later, if space permits, third teams may be approved using the DOE-approved random selection process.

Schools with preregistered first team will take precedence over 2nd & 3rd teams.
