Registration Set Up: Create a Registration Form

This article explains how to start a new registration form for your organization, and is part of our registration set up guide, which will walk you through the entire process of setting up a registration form, from choosing the form template to setting up fees to activating the form and sharing it with your participants.

Create a Registration Form

Creating one or multiple forms is up to your organization needs. Using multiple forms is great if you are a multi-sport organization and run registration multiple times throughout the year or have overlapping registration periods.

      Explanation of Template Types

      Basic: This template will get you started off with the most basic of basics - first and last name! You can choose to build upon that by adding more fields if needed.

      Standard: The standard form comes with the basic form fields plus some additional default fields, and excludes any custom fields you may have set up within your organization settings. If you have custom fields that you want to be included in member roster details but not have filled out for registration, you'll want to go with this template.

      Standard & Custom (All): This is the form that is selected by default and contains all default form fields plus any custom fields you may have added to your organization's Settings tab in the Custom Fields section.

      Hockey Canada: This form is for organizations that are part of Hockey Canada and would like to include the required fields for membership information. Learn more about Hockey Canada membership validation.

      USA Lacrosse: This form is for organizations that are part of USA Lacrosse and would like to include the required fields for membership verification. Learn more about USA Lacrosse membership validation.
