Coach Lisa and Skip,

Thank you both. I managed to invite myself as a parent and added my son to the team! It is a complicated process.  Will invite other parents to do so...

The second website- vadcfll- is this registration for the tournament? can the coach register the students without asking the other parents again? I haven't started the process yet.

Thanks!

Tian Nan

> Hi Coach! Let me try to answer this. I am another coach too, that has gone through this last year and I am about to do it again this year. It is unfortunately kind of hard, but not terribly so. You will have to get the parents involved, so good luck with that. I encourage you to do it yourself first (assuming that you have a child on your team), take notes, and then explain it to the other parents.

> This is where all of the parents will have to go. They will have to create an account and then enter in their child's information. I do not know if parents that had kids participating last year, if they will have to create a new account or if they can use last year's account. I haven't tested it yet. Like I said, if you have a child on your team, then I suggest that you do this first before sending that link out to all of your parents.

> But before you can do that, you will have to create the team at that same site first. So, create the team, and then add team member information. The site will ask questions such as the child's name, birth date, FLL history (have they competed before) and ethnicity. Again, I suggest that you go through, enter the information for your own kid(s), take notes, and then send out an email to all of your parents requesting the information that you will need to complete that form.

>> 
>> For the VA-DC FLL registration site, which is used by teams to pick their preferences for their regional tournament as well as get them assigned to the correct division, the coach can enter everything.  The only way parents would be able to enter the info would be for the coach to give them all their user name and password.  I recommend coaches gather and enter this info before October 1st, when the tournament preference portion of the site will be opened.  At that time, coaches can log back in, select their preferences and then their registration form will be complete for regional tournaments. Teams will be able to make changes/edits up until (but no later than) October 10th, at which time we will get the assignments completed.
