To register, click on the link here to access the new registration form. Each school is required to bring one reader for every 2 teams that they enter (and 1 reader if they are entering 1 team). Please see note 2 below for more information. 

Registration using the above linked form is required in advance of each tournament. Please sign up at least eight days before the tournament. If you need to register less than eight days before the tournament, please email emilio@iacompetitions.com and we will try to accommodate you. Upon registration, you will be sent an invoice with payment instructions. Please see the “Costs” tab on the menu bar for a list of prices and fees.

Please keep the following in mind:

1. Online Registration is REQUIRED and is only available online through this site. After you register, you will receive an invoice at the email address that you mentioned.

2. Schools need to bring at least one reader (who can be a teacher, a parent or even a non-playing student) who can speak English clearly for every two teams they bring (or fraction thereof). That person may be asked to assist with reading questions and/or scorekeeping.
