REGISTRATION STEP 2- TEAM INFORMATION
After you have purchased your team number and materials and paid your State Affiliate Registration Fees above, you will receive a confirmation of payment from DI HQ. Next is registering with NE DI! Go to the website below:
REGISTERYOURTEAM.ORG is now OPEN!
NOW thru January 15, 2020, the website will be live to finalize your team information: registeryourteam.org
Each school coordinator will be required to login to DI Resources page and add your team manager names. Once this is completed, your team managers can log into the registration website with their credentials from DI HQ and accept the team manager Code of Conduct and also enter the team information: team members name, grade and age. By adding the team member info, a link is also generated that is emailed to the parents/guardians. When the parent clicks on the link, they can list any health concerns, allergies, etc. This step is imperative to keeping our kids safe. ***Remember–this step requires parent response so please do not wait to get your team completed.*** Appraiser information will also be required to be input, and a link is generated by team managers/coordinators on the website so appraisers will also login to enter information and accept the code of conduct.
We have implemented this new registration feature to allow teams to be formed and finalized as the season evolves.

**All Teams must be completely registered with both steps by Jan 15, 2020**
There are NO Affiliate Fees for Rising Stars teams. However, Rising Star teams DO have to register on registeryourteam.org to perform at their Regional Tournament. An appraiser is not required for Rising Star teams so simply use your team managers name if prompted for an appraiser on your registration to bypass that field. The team manager will not be included in the appraiser pool.
Nebraska DI and Rising Stars Registered Teams are not eligible for refunds or cancellations.
Appraiser Policy: updated 8/10/19
Nebraska DI requires each team to provide a minimum of (1) Appraiser to attend Training, and to participate at their Regional and Affiliate Finals Tournaments. NO EXCEPTIONS!
AFFILIATE FINALS IS MARCH 28TH, 2020 IN KEARNEY, NEBRASKA.
It is highly recommended that each team also have an additional trained, participating Appraiser. This will ensure that our tournaments are adequately staffed. Teams that do not provide a trained, participating Appraiser may be subject to penalty, to be determined by Tournament Directors.
If your team does not advance to Affiliate Finals, your Appraiser’s participation at Affiliate Finals is optional, though greatly appreciated.
All Appraisers must complete mandatory face-to-face training each year.
It is the responsibility of the Team Manager to recruit at least one volunteer to serve as an appraiser for each team they manage. Choose carefully as Appraisers will not be allowed to leave assigned post to watch any performances throughout the tournament day. Appraisers must be able to turn off cell phone during performances–please do not recruit anyone that would be “on call” for their employment. They are not allowed to leave during performances to ensure scoring consistency.
All Appraisers must be finalized and registered by January 15, 2020 on registeryourteam.org, NO changes after this date will be allowed. After registration is closed and the Appraiser(s) are finalized, they will receive an email within 7-10 days with a link to Verified Volunteers. This is a TIME SENSITIVE email. This application must be submitted within 72 hours and pass the certification process before acceptance is guaranteed to participate in any NE DI Tournament. If your Appraisers have had a recent background check through another reputable source, please see Affiliate Director for approval.
Mandatory Face to Face Appraiser training will be held in each region after January 15, 2020 and prior to the Regional Tournament. Additional Online Training information is available. All Training details will be emailed to each Appraiser and announced on the website and our Facebook page.
If your Appraisers are unable to attend Mandatory training and complete online training, they will not be certified to Appraise at either Tournament. Both training opportunities (face to face and any related online training) are required for Appraisers to be certified.
Teams that do not provide a trained, participating Appraiser for their Regional Tournament may be subject to penalty, to be determined by Tournament Directors. No Exceptions!
Teams that do not provide a trained, participating Appraiser for the Affiliate Tournament may be subject to penalty, to be determined by Tournament Directors. No Exceptions!
Please choose your appraiser(s) carefully; make sure they understand the appraiser is directly responsible for impacting the team if they don’t show up!
We have had to take these steps to ensure we can properly staff our tournaments and ensure scoring is fair and equitable.
Appraisers will be given an official badge and shirt to wear at Regional Tournaments and if the team advances, to Affiliate Finals. Badges and shirt must be worn at all tournaments and be visible to adhere to the Youth Protection Policy and Procedure.
Team Appraisers do not appraise at Destination Imagination Global Finals.
Rising Star teams are not required to provide a team appraiser.
