Late Registration Opens on 01/31/17 and will close on 02/05/17

Register Early. We often hit capacity prior to official cutoff date and so registration may close early due to capacity.

Inquiries regarding the availability to register after registration has closed
should be brought to Chapter Director Anthony Robinson at anthony.j.robinson@cathespians.org and will be handled on a case-by-case basis. No registration will be accepted after 02/11/17.

Be sure to use the Registration Cheat sheet and review the Registration Guide before you begin.

Use the Registration Checklist when submitting your forms.

We will be using an online registration for the delegates. If you registered for previously much of the school and student information is in the system, however, you need to update any changes in induction status prior to registering.

Registration Order
Registration Order is used when assigning seats for All Festival Events and encourages complete and accurate registration and registration forms. Sending in partial or incomplete forms will not help your registration order. Your registration order is determined by three dates. First by the postmark date of your Troupe’s complete registration packet, including full payment and complete IE titles. If there is no postmark, then we will go by the date you packet was picked up. If that date matches another school, this “second” date is ordered by the latest applicable invoicing date (this is the date you hit the Payment button). If that date matches, the “third” date will default to when your troupe registration began. Adds and swaps will reset these dates.
