Registration Information

Please note that there is a new registration process for Spring Reign 2010.

Over the past few years, Spring Reign has become a very popular tournament. As a result, we can no longer accept every team that wants to attend. The goal of the new registration process is to improve the transparency of registration for all teams and to create a fair method for determining which teams are accepted.

Process

  1. Each team must complete an online registration no later than March 31. All teams will initially be placed on the waitlist, and all registrations will be listed on the event web page. It is up to each school to make sure that a registration is completed for its team(s).
  2. The Tournament Directors will select teams to be accepted into the tournament based on the selection criteria below.
  3. Teams that are accepted will be notified via email on April 4. Accepted teams must confirm their attendance and submit payment no later than April 10.
  4. Any spots not accepted will be offered to teams on the waitlist on April 11.
  5. Final schedules will be posted on the website on April 18.
  6. Note: The Tournament Directors can make exceptions to this timeline and process in special cases. Please contact if you have any questions.

Selection Criteria

  • Out of town teams will be given priority in order to promote diversity at the tournament.

Paperwork

The following pieces of paperwork will be required in order to participate in Spring Reign.  Information about paperwork deadlines and the tournament check-in process will be emailed to accepted teams on April 4.

Note that there are 3 pages, with signatures required on both page 1 and page 3. We ask that all coaches keep a copy of the front page, which includes a medical authorization, in case they need to seek care for a child in the parents' absence. It is acceptable to scan and submit the waivers electronically, if it as done by Monday, April 19.  Otherwise, waivers are due at check-in on the morning of Saturday, April 24.  Players who have already submitted a DiscNW waiver for another 2010 event (e.g., spring youth leagues) do not need to submit a second waiver.
  2. All coaches will be required to sign a Coaching Code of Conduct (CCC) form, which outlines coaches' responsibilities while participating in DiscNW events, and which signifies that they have been educated as to the nature and risk of concussions and head injuries. The training can be found here, in the table row labeled "Coaches."  The CCC is due at team check-in on the morning of Saturday, April 24. Coaches who have already submitted a CCC for another 2010 event (e.g., spring youth leagues) do not need to submit a second CCC.
  3. Each team must submit a Team Roster.  Rosters are due by email by Monday, April 19, at .
