Purchasing a team number is only part of the registration process.  Don't stop there!  

You must complete a 3-step process to get your team completely registered before the December 5th Early Bird deadline! 

In this step you will purchase your Team Number & Program Materials and create an account with Destination Imagination International (DII).

Your account will give you access to online materials available through DII. If you paid for printed materials, you will receive those materials by mail.

Click here to purchase the Team Number & Program Materials and create an account. Choose the Welcome tab > Create New Account*. After creating an account, you'll purchase a Team Number.

*If you're a returning team manager, you should sign into your existing account to make your purchase. 

After choosing the Texas Affiliate and adding the item to your cart, a lower price will appear. Teams in the state of Texas pay $65 for Rising Stars! materials and $95 for competitive Challenge materials.


You need to associate your name with the Team Number you purchased,  and provide Team information.

Click here. Enter the log-in information from  the account you created in Step 1 above. After you log in, click on the Teams tab and choose My Teams. Click on Add Team Manager. Once your Team Information is visible, click on the pencil icon to edit your team information.

For Organization, fill in the school(s) that your team attends. If your team members attend more than 2 schools, list your organization as Independent.

You must choose your team's competition level and select a Challenge in order to preview the full, digital version of a Challenge.

Once your team has made it's final Challenge selection, be sure and update this page.
