Is your team ready?

Is your team ready to Launch your Mission into the 2019 season? Make sure your team is “Event Ready”* by updating your team profile on the Dashboard. Your team will need to have two current Lead Coach/Mentors in place, who have completed the Youth Protection Policy Screening (U.S. and Canada teams), in order to select your preferences during the First Preference round.

*If your team is ‘Event Ready’ by Noon Eastern Time on September 20, you will be eligible for a chance to receive a free 2019 registration!
