Tips To Make Your Registration Experience Smooth

Here are some tips and reminders to get your team through registration as quickly and smoothly as possible!

  • Please have your entire team come to registration at the same time.
  • Your team’s coach or captain should be the first person in line with your team, with the following items gathered and ready:
    • Class A:
      • Sealed official transcripts, or pre-approved electronic official transcripts
      • Matching jerseys for visual inspection
      • Student ID
      • Government-issued photo ID
    • Class AA:
      • Newspaper article (for publicity waiver)
      • Matching jerseys for visual inspection
      • Student ID
      • Government-issued photo ID
    • High School:
      • Proof of eligibility
  • If any player on your college team has received a written eligibility waiver from the NCPA, please print and have a copy of our official response out and ready.
  • Registration hours:
    • Thursday: 2 PM – 7 PM
    • Friday: 7 AM – 5:30 PM

COLLEGE CHECK-IN FEES and WAIVERS
Save Your Team Hundreds!

Class A: Class A teams must have matching NCPA-approved jerseys including each player’s name and number and present them at team check-in.  There is a $500 fee if a Class A team does not have approved jerseys.  NCPA Jersey Requirements

Class AA: The Class AA entry fee is $900 – but your team can waive the remaining $300 of your entry fee with up to three fee waivers worth $100 each:1) Profile Waiver:  Complete your team and each player profile, including player photo and Player Information (in the Edit Profile tab of your APPA Player Profile.)
2) Jersey Waiver: Have matching team jerseys meeting the NCPA Jersey Requirements
3) Publicity Waiver:  Bring a front-page school newspaper article mentioning the 2015 National Championships.  One article is good for all lines from the same school.Remember, the entry fee that your school has paid assumes that your school will have all three waivers.  The remaining entry fee for any unmet waivers will be collected at registration.  Publicity waivers may be earned after the event and the $100 will be refunded to the original form of payment.High School: Each player MUST bring proof of eligibility, preferably a photo student ID card or a copy of the player’s yearbook with a photo of the player.  Other forms of eligibility documentation should be cleared with the NCPA in advance by emailing ncpa@college-paintball.com.
