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. For IN-PERSON Regionals: Each school is required to bring one reader for every 2 teams that they enter or fraction thereof. The reader can be a teacher, a parent or even a non-playing student, who can speak English clearly. That person may be asked to assist with reading questions and/or scorekeeping. Teams do NOT need to provide readers for ONLINE tournaments.

3. Each school must provide a valid contact email address for its contact person. Each school must designate ONE official contact person. This can be a teacher, administrator, or parent.

4. The Varsity Division is meant for students in 11th and 12th grade (and CEGEP 1 in Québec). The Junior Varsity (JV) division is meant for students in 9th and 10th grade. The Middle Division is meant for students in 7th and 8th grades and the Elementary Division in 6th grade and younger. In the Bowl, you can have younger students compete on a team in an older division, but not vice versa. In the Bee, the students cannot play up.
