High School Science Bowl Coaching Information

January 25, 2014 


ImageRegional team registration is available online only and opens October 1, 2013, 11:00 a.m. Central Time.

 ALL coaches (including returning coaches) must create a New Account at the beginning of each school year. (Returning coaches: you must use a uniquely different username each year.)

Remember your username and password—you will need it each time you access the site.

Hints, tips and tricks:

  • Registration opens October 1, 11:00 a.m. Central Time.  Any coach or team data entered into the system prior to 11:00 a.m. on October 1 will be deleted.
  • Plan ahead and gather the following information prior to October 1:  
    • First and last name from each student
    • Gender
    • Grade
    • Birth month/year
    • Student's home Zip Code 
    • Ethnicity/Race
    • Citizenship
    • Student email (the system will accept any type of data, so if you choose not to provide a student's email address, simply type "n/a")
  • IMPORTANT NOTE:  Even though the online registration system allows you to save team information for future changes, it's in your best interest to complete the registration process as soon as possible after registration opens.   In order for teams to be considered for competition, the coach must enter all the data and click on the "submit" button.  The team roster is filled on a first-come first-served basis.  There is a 40-team limit for this event. Schools whose applications are received after the roster is filled will be placed on a waiting list.

If you get the "Agent Done" message, simply close your browser completely (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, etc.), then open it and visit the site again.
