1) Overview of the Registration Process

We are using a web-based system, CVENT:

Only qualified teams can register. Please wait until your league qualifies the teams and your team will be available in CVENT. There is a registration code necessary which we will send to the team leaders of the qualified teams.

Registration proceeds separately for each qualified team and for the team leader and team members. When registering a team, you need to include the information for a “point of contact” for the team. Please note, though, that the person serving as point of contact is not registered at that time, but only the team is registered. In addition to registering your team, all team leaders and team members need to register as Faculty/Staff or Student participants.

Registrations are only complete when payment is received.

Credit card payments are immediately validated.

We strongly recommend payment by credit card.

The other available method of payment takes time. No registration is considered complete until full payment is received.

The participants from the countries requiring visas will need an invitation letter. Also please visit the following website for the latest information on visa applications.

The invitation letter will be sent by email to the participants at our very earliest convenience after the registration is complete. Please wait patiently for the payment to be complete. If you still have questions, please email to LOC’s email

We have MAJOR leagues and JUNIOR leagues. All fees are in US Dollars (USD)
