Instructions on How to Register in O2cm

For the Royal Palm Dancesport Championships NQE & WDSF Open

• If you have used O2cm before and already have an O2cm Account and have the now required O2cm RIN Numbers for each dancer in your Account, simply Log In at our O2cm Login Page, and register for the Competition and pay your Competitor Package Fees & any Entry Fees there by PayPal or Credit Card, as usual.

If you have an O2cm Account but have not yet obtained the now required O2cm RIN Numbers for each dancer in your Account, see below.

Pro/Am Teachers: Go to https://competitor.o2cm.com/studio/, and follow the instructions found there (at the link for Click Here for a walkthrough of the Process) to set up a Studio Account (with the now required O2cm RIN Number), in which you can then add all of your students in the same account.

If you have not used O2cm before (or have not yet obtained the now required O2cm RIN Number for each dancer in your Account),
here are the steps to follow:

I. Create an O2cm Registration Account (and obtain an O2cm RIN Number for each dancer to be associated with your Registration Account)


Pro/Am Teachers: Go to https://competitor.o2cm.com/studio/, and follow the instructions found there (at the link for Click Here for a walkthrough of the Process) to set up a Studio Account (with the now required O2cm RIN Number), in which you can then add all of your students in the same account.

Amateurs:   To create an O2cm Registration Account, go to our O2cm Login Page (pictured below), and follow O2cm’s instructions there to set up a NEW ACCOUNT for Registration (“REGISTRATION ACCOUNT”), if you don’t already have one.

O2cm Sign-In Page

Then follow the instructions found below the login screen pictured above to obtain the now required O2cm Registrant Identification Number (RIN) for each dancer to be included in your Account, and associate both RIN numbers with your REGISTRATION ACCOUNT, if you have not already done so.

  • Important Tip:   In obtaining RIN Numbers for each dancer in your couple, it is necessary to associate both partners with your REGISTRATION ACCOUNT, so that you can later both register with the same Account.

    How to Obtain your individual RIN Numbers & Associate them with your Registration Account:

    If you and your partner have the same last name: Just obtain the RIN for yourself at https://competitor.o2cm.com/ (via the RIN Account Registration screen found there, pictured further below). In registering for your RIN, be sure to fill in the email address for your REGISTRATION ACCOUNT in the blank labeled “Associated Account.”

    Then log in to your RIN Account at https://competitor.o2cm.com/, and you should see your name and RIN toward the top. You can now easily add your Partner under the “Add/Remove” Tab and thereby obtain a RIN Number for your partner, if you and your partner have the same last name.

    IMPORTANT: Then click on the “Select” button opposite one of your names to highlight your name, and under the “Competitor Info” tab, complete all of the Competitor Information for that partner (making sure that the email address for your REGISTRATION ACCOUNT appears in the Email blank there). Then click the “Memberships” Tab to input that partner’s USA Dance, WDSF or other Association Membership number(s) and click “Validate” opposite each membership. Repeat this process to complete the Competitor Information and enter and Validate the membership numbers for the other partner. Unless you complete this step and enter and Validate the Membership Numbers for each of you, your couple may not be able to register for events that require membership in a particular association, and you may not qualify for Nationals.

    If you and your partner have different last names: Each of you needs to set up our own RIN Account separately at https://competitor.o2cm.com/ (via the RIN Account Registration Screen pictured below), each giving your own separate (and different) e-mail address in the “Email – (Username)” blank.

    IMPORTANT: When you set up your separate RIN Accounts there, each of you should fill in your own separate (and different) email address in the blank labeled “Email – (Username)” and fill in the email address of your REGISTRATION ACCOUNT in the blank labeled, “Associated Account.” This will make both names and RIN Numbers show up in that one REGISTRATION ACCOUNT for purposes of registration. (You will use that REGISTRATION ACCOUNT to log in (when you click the big blue box above) to register for the Competition.)

    IMPORTANT: After obtaining your RIN Numbers, each of you should log in to your individual RIN Account at https://competitor.o2cm.com/, and, under the “Competitor Info” tab, complete all the Competitor Information (making sure that the email address for your REGISTRATION ACCOUNT appears in the Email blank there). Then click the “Memberships” Tab to input your USA Dance, WDSF or other Association Membership number(s) and click “Validate” opposite each membership. Unless each of you completes this step in your individual RIN Account and enters and Validates your membership numbers, your couple may not be able to register for events that require membership in a particular association, and you may not qualify for Nationals.

Again, be sure to enter each dancer’s USA Dance and/or WDSF Membership Number(s) in your individual RIN Account (per instructions above) at: https://competitor.o2cm.com/. (Click the small Login Link (upper right corner), login, Select the dancer, click the Membership Tab and enter that dancer’s Membership info (if it does not already appear there), and click Validate.) Unless you and your partner both complete this step, you may not be able to register as a couple for events that require membership in a particular association, and you may not qualify for Nationals.

II. Log in & Follow the Steps to Complete Account Information, Register & Pay

After completing Step I above, Login at the O2cm Login Page for our Competition, using the e-mail address and password for the O2cm Account you set up (per the instructions above) that has both partners associated with it, and register for our Competition per the instructions below.

Note: If you already have an O2cm Account and have not yet obtained the now required O2cm Registrant Identification Number (RIN) for each dancer in your account, be sure to follow the instructions above to do so before you try to register.   And, be sure to enter each dancer’s USA Dance and/or WDSF Membership Number(s) in your RIN Account at: https://competitor.o2cm.com/. (Click the small Login Link (upper right corner) there, login, Select the dancer, click the Membership Tab and enter that dancer’s Membership info (if it does not already appear there), and click Validate. Repeat for all other dancers in your account.)

Then, follow the Step by Step Instructions on How to Register with O2cm – found below .

After reading the following information, if you have any questions, please e-mail us at: Info@royalpalmdancesport.org.

Step by Step Instructions on How to Register with O2cm – For New Users (and Others with Questions):

Steps 1 & 2: – Complete Your Account Info & Add/ Select Yourselves as dancers in your Account:

  • Step 1:   Complete all your Account Information, enter a new password you will remember in both the “Update Password” and “Verify Password” blanks, and click “Save Account Information” (gray button left bottom of Step 1). (See Note on O2cm Accounts below).
  • O2cm Registration - Step 1 for Goosmans

    Note on O2cm Accounts:
    For Amateur or Same Gender Couples, you will want to set up one account for both partners in your couple. The Account can be under one of your names or under both of your names (as shown above for the Goosmans). You will then add both of you as dancers in the Account in the next step below. This will let you register for the Competition as a couple, and pay your Competitor Fees in this one Account.

    For Teachers or Pros who will dance with several Students and wish to pay for all of their Competitor Packages and Entry Fees in one Account, and then be reimbursed by the students, you can set up one O2cm Account under your name as Teacher, and then add all of your Students as dancers in your account. O2cm lets you add as many dancers as you would like in any O2cm Account. To do so, go to https://competitor.o2cm.com/studio/, and follow the instructions found there (at the link for Click Here for a walkthrough of the Process) to set up a Studio Account (with the now required O2cm RIN Number), in which you can then add all of your students in the same account.

  • Step 2:   If you have followed the instructions in Step I above to associate both dancers with the same account, both dancers in your couple should show up in the drop down menus pictured below. If not, you may need to Add one of you as the Lead or Follower in your Account. Click “New” to add a dancer:

    Then, add the dancer, and and click “Save” to return to the Registration Form above:

  • In the left “Event Selection Box” (Step 3), Click to highlight Events you want to enter (if your available events fill the Event Selection Box, scroll down in the Event Selection Box to find all options – so you don`t miss any!), and click “Add Couple to Events” (gray button to the right of the drop-down menus in Step 3). The Events you have entered will appear in the “Entries for Couple” window in Step 4:

  • Step 5:   In Step 5, you must Select and Add a Competitor Package for each competitor. For each dancer in your couple, select the applicable Competitor Package, in the left drop down menu. Then, make a selection in every available drop down menu – left to right. (If only one option appears in any drop-down menu, select that option.)
  • O2cm Registration - Step 5 for Goosmans

  • In the far right drop-down menu, first select the Gent (or Leader) in your couple, and click “Add” (gray button under far right drop-down menu). Then repeat, and click “Add” for the Lady (or Follower). You must Add the applicable Competitor Package for each partner in your couple.

    Teachers with multiple students: Add your own Competitor Package one time; then add the applicable Competitor Packages for each of your Students.

    Clicking on “Pay with Debit or Credit Card” (gray bar at bottom of PayPal Screen above), will take you to a “Guest Checkout Screen,” where you will fill in your Credit or Debit Card information, Billing Address, and Contact Information, and click “Pay Now.”

    You should receive an e-mail from PayPal, confirming your payment.
