ACT School Sport Registration Instructions

Registrations to trial for ACT School Sport teams are via the ACT School Sport Website. School Sport ACT now collects all registration information online – this is to prevent the movement to and fro of a paper note and have all information readily available to officials prior to the trial. As this process incurs a fee for data storage, system maintenance and admin, a small $5 fee payment via credit card will be required.

  1. Go to the School Sport ACT website
  2. Click Register (top right corner of homepage) for an Account – enter parent details and password
  3. A confirmation email will be sent to your chosen email that will contain a link that you must click on to verify the email account.
  4. Click Log In (top right hand corner of home page) enter password then click on top tab My Profile

  7. Select your child’s name from the dropdown box and then enter the optional fields for Playing History, Preferred Position (if applicable) and Representative Experience. If you are already in the system, ensure your child’s school is up to date in your profile – have they moved onto High School?
  8. Make the $5 credit card payment then click to register.
  9. An automated email will then be sent to your Principal/School Approver for their approval to trial (no need to take anything to school for the Principal to sign).
