Tips for using the excel spreadsheet:

  • Editing of the original link has been blocked, you must download a copy and enable editing of the copy.
  • The information you enter on the spreadsheet will be imported into our Games Management System (vs being manually entered as done previously). It is VERY important to include complete and accurate spellings of names and accurate DOB for all participants (including coaches) so that GMS does not create a different individual profile.
  • Incomplete forms with missing DOBs, Events, Team Names, etc. will not be accepted. Qualifying scores not required.
  • Please use the dropdown selections for gender and events.
  • Complete one line for each participant.
  • Be consistent with your delegation name (so GMS does not create separate delegations for you)
  • Do not modify the format of this spreadsheet.

We are here to help troubleshoot, and are learning as well to smooth out any kinks! If you have any questions regarding the registration process for our PPH Area event, please email pphtina@somaine.org.
