Important Competitor Registration Tips:

Please pay your Competitor Fees Online when you Register.

To qualify for a Stated Fee Rate,
All Fees must be paid and received by the applicable Fee Deadline.
See Fees & Deadlines on Your Applicable Competitor Info page.

  • O2cm Registration Account, RIN Numbers & Login: The Link in the big blue registration box above takes you to the O2cm Registration Login screen for our Competition.  
    Follow O2cm’s instructions there to set up a NEW ACCOUNT for Registration (“REGISTRATION ACCOUNT”), if you don’t already have one.

    Then follow the instructions found at the bottom of the login screen to obtain the now required O2cm RIN Number for each individual competitor and associate both RIN numbers with your REGISTRATION ACCOUNT, if you have not already done so.

    Important Tips on Obtaining your individual RIN Numbers & Associating 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.

    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). Repeat for the second partner.

    IMPORTANT: 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.   Note: One partner can use the same email address as used for your Registration Account, but the other partner must use a different email address in the Email 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.
