All schools are responsible for entering their team directly into the Altiusrt system. The online registration process needs to be completed by Monday 19 August to allow team names to be published in the tournament booklets. If registration is not completed by this date, team names will not be published.

The tournament registration cover sheet will be sent out in a couple of weeks, this will need to be printed out and stapled to your signed team entry sheet printed from Altiusrt, ready to hand in at the tournament briefing.

It is vital that this sheet is printed out and attached to your team reconcile form - if it is not attached, the team registration will not be accepted.
