Illinois Team Registration is Open for the Cargo Connect Season

Please remember that in order to register in Illinois, you must first register Nationally. National team registration is found at .

To register in Illinois, please go to our website and click >COACH LOGIN at the top of the page. NOTE: You must enter your National team number when you register in Illinois.

Or you can click here to go straight to Illinois Registration.

We have updated the qualifiers that are available to teams for this season, and we have added a Remote Event Option. If you ONLY want a remote event, please choose the Remote Event as your first choice pick. We will assume that any team that has chosen the Remote Event option as their first choice, only wants a remote event, even though other choices must be picked. Teams must choose a minimum of 3 events, and can choose up to 4 events.

You can change your event selection by logging back in, making the changes, and saving them. You can change your event picks and preferences through October 15th.

Not all events have confirmed dates or locations yet. This is due to COVID-19 and we ask that you are patient with us. As we receive updates, we will make announcements to teams through the coach email list, so stay tuned.
