TWO Quick Suggestions:
1.) We do not recommend using your Smart Phone to Register. While some parents have been successful, we suggest that you switch to a laptop, tablet or desktop computer if you have issues.
2.) It is REQUIRED that parents completing the Registration be logged into their Sport NGIN account. Bizarre effects have been noticed when trying to Register using Guest Access.
