REGISTRATION FOR REGIONAL TOURNAMENTS HAS ENDED.
We are using a new registration program this year. All team and volunteer registration is at this website!
There is a volunteer registration link on the very bottom – but they can avoid the first step by following this link directly to the appraiser volunteer page
It will open a page that has two choices – volunteer for a team, or volunteers not representing a team. Be sure and select if you are a volunteer for a specific team or a general tournament volunteer to assist the region. When you select an option, you will see all of the other states using this system and find the five open Washington regions at the bottom.
For all the registration information, see www.wa-di.org/registration
IMPORTANT Regional Realignment!
Seattle Metro has exceeded tournament capacity with the large number of teams. A new regional alignment is taking place with some Seattle teams moving to North Sound and Rainier region. Full details and map are available HERE.
Remember - The Spirit Of Independence!
Destination Imagination takes pride that this program is about the team's solution and their independent creation of the solution. Please, don't interfere - often with the best intentions. Read the Spirit of Independence document before the state tournament and show the the Spirit!
New Resources and Training Materials!
Be sure and check out the new resource page with training and resources from WA DI volunteers and affiliates around the country. If you have materials that would be helpful to team managers, parents, or tournament volunteers, send them in and we'll post them for others. The Start A Team page has introductory information and videos while the resource page is full of material on specific challenges, instant challenges, and more! Check back as material is being added and we'll add a tournament section in early February to acquaint new team managers with the process as well as any changes this year.
