Registration Process!

Special Olympics Maine will be piloting a new registration format for Head Of Delegation’s! HOD’s will now be using Excel to complete full Delegation Registrations! This will allow the HOD to see their full roster (Coaches AND Athletes) at one time. HOD’s will be able to save a copy of their registration to their computer for their record, along with being able to work on rosters periodically leading up to the deadline, instead of completing registrations online without being able to save their progress!
