How do I register to the competition?
Follow the links from the main even site here (see menu above). Each competition page has a link to a registration page on Smoothcomp competition system.
There, you first create an account and register as a coach/ team leader in the system, together with you club name or team. Then, as the first registered person, you become manager for this club/team. After this you can now register all your team members, or they can do it by themselves, and join the club/team you have set up. It is also possible to register without any team. All athletes must create an own account (or the manager can also do this for everybody).
