Participation Certificates for all 2017 tournaments

Coaches,

We have added the 2017 tournament participation certificates to the website. You may download them at any time by logging into the coaches corner via the coaches login. We have all 4 certificates for all 4 tournaments already ready to go so that you can download and print them up as you need them. We understand some coaches like to have the certificates ready to go for team members on competition day and others may need them for an award ceremony at the school in a few months and they will be available on the website whenever you need them. The 2016 certificates are still available on the website in the same area for any coaches that may need them.

Filling out the certificates is very easy. They are setup easily with two spots already on the PDF to enter the participants name and the problem they participated in. All you have to do is click on the area and type. Once filled out, clicking print or save will render a high quality version that will frame up nicely. To make it even easier, the names can be quickly be edited and a new copy saved for each participant on the team.

As a reminder:

To login to the coaches corner: Simply click the login button at the bottom of any page on our website. Then, enter your membership number in for the username and the zip code in for the password and click to login.
