Team Registration

Pricing

Team Registration fees cover all Team Managers, team members, and spectators. Team Registration fees include tournament participation, access to all activities, day and evening events, the Innovation Expo, and other open events. Because housing prices are based on full occupancy, all group members must purchase the same housing package and arrive on the same day. If a team has split arrival dates, the whole team will have to pay from the date of the first person to arrive. Please plan on arriving on the same day. Your team registration is not secured until a $1,500 deposit has been met.

Teams may be placed in a residence hall (dorm) or hotel. An Affiliate Locator will be available approximately five days before the event. Specific rooming assignments are the responsibility of the Team Manager. Rooms will be assigned in coordination with Housing Staff at On-Site Registration. Teams requesting hotel housing may not be housed with their Affiliate, but will be guaranteed housing in a hotel.
