Parents/Guardians in order to register your kids, you can start by creating an Account for yourself and then add your kid as a new Profile from your Account in order to use the same email address. If you have several kids, you will need to switch Profiles and pay for each child before you register for the next one; you can have multiple profiles per one account/email. Available entries (divisions) will be visible based on the your profile information (i.e. age) so, some divisions will be unavailable for registration (greyed out) to avoid mistakes due to age restrictions. Please note that registration/brackets/scoreboards is based on the Profile's info (name/date of birth). Therefore if you use your own Profile (instead of you kid's) it will not work due to the age restrictions for the divisions.
