Sports registration form – free template

Posted by:

 

Looking for some suggestions for the types of fields to include on a sports registration form?  First, keep in mind that there are two major types of sport sign up forms; those for individuals and those for teams.  Each form will require different fields, so make sure you keep in mind who you want signing up for your program before you put together your form.

Suggestions for individual sign up form

Participant Contact Information

  • First name
  • Last name
  • Email
  • Home phone number
  • Cell phone number
  • Address

Participant Biographical Information

  • Age
  • Gender
  • DOB
  • School name
  • School grade

In addition, in case you have participants signing up that are minors, it is always good, and often required by law, to collect the person’s family/emergency contact information.  We recommend you collect family/emergency contact information for the participant’s mother, father (or legal guardians) and then an emergency contact (in case it’s not a parent).  When collecting family/emergency information, make sure you capture basic contact information, in order to assure you have ways to reach out in the event of an emergency.  Also, it’s a good idea to include a place for parents to choose if they would like to be a “volunteer” for the sports program, something which many parents love to do.

Custom fields

The fields above are the baseline fields any sports registration form should contain.  However, depending on the type of your program, and the data requirements of your organization, chances are you’ll need to add some custom fields to your sign up form as well.

 

Digital registration vs. paper registration

To stay competitive in today’s digital world, you need to have an online registration registration form.  The days of printing out sign up sheets and emailing out PDF documents are over.  People nowadays expect to be able to get things done quickly and efficiently online, whether it be paying their electric bill or signing their kid up for soccer.
