  • Click "eSports Registration" at the top of this page.

  • Create an account for Hoop Dreams Nation eSports.  This is a different account from typical basketball registration.  Username must be different.

  • Add your "team" (which is the player) to your account by THEIR USERNAME ON PLAYSTATION OR XBOX.  Where it asks for team name, put their USERNAME FOR PS OR XBOX.

  • Add a roster (which should be the actual info of the player)

  • Each individual player should have their own username because they will be ranked and more than 1 player using the same account will skew results. If you are registering a second player, you must add the second player to the account.

  • Click the green "register for tournaments" button in the top right corner.

  • Choose your event, making sure the time, platform, and game are all accurate.

  • Complete the form, and submit payment.

  • Schedule will come out the day before the games are scheduled to start, along with instructions, settings, and processes.
