Steps to Register

    1. School & Student Info

    You'll use a search tool to find your school information and verify it is correct, and you may need to input some information manually. As many students as are interested can participate in team practices and the school competition.

    What you need for this:

    • School type (public, private, etc.), address and phone number
    • Estimated total number of students and number of girls participating in team practices
    • Number of students (max. 10) representing your school at the chapter competition
    • You do not need to input individual student names at this time
    • For Title I schools: to confirm discount eligibility, know your school's Title I funding status (School Wide or Targeted) and/or percentage of students on free/reduced lunch, plus your principal's name and contact information  

    2. Payment & Shipping Info

    Payment can be done by credit card, purchase order or check. There is no limit on the number of students who can compete at the school level; the registration fee is based on the number of students from your school who will go on to the chapter level. You will have the option to mail to the school address or provide an alternative address. 

    What you need for this:

    • Credit card information or school purchase order number and email address to send purchase order invoice or email address to send check request invoice

    • The mailing address to ship the competition kit, if different from school address

    3. Head Coach & Co-Coach Info

    Registration can be done by the coach, co-coach or other school administrator or employee. If you are registering on behalf of the coach, you'll need to have some information ready to complete this process.

    What you need for this:

    • Head coach first and last name, email address, alternate email address (optional) and phone number
    • If the head coach is a MATHCOUNTS alumnus/a, where and when they participated, if known
    • If registering a co-coach, this same information will be needed
    What to Expect After Registering

    Online Access

    Every competition coach receives access to online preparation resources through the Coach Dashboard at www.mathcounts.org/coaches. If you're a returning coach, your online access will be granted as soon as you register, and you’ll use the same username and password you had last year. If you're a new coach, you will receive an email shortly from auto-notifications@mathcounts.org with login instructions for the Coach Dashboard.

    Competition Kit

    Starting in August 2020, every registered school will be mailed a kit with a poster, ribbons, certificates, pencils and a hard copy of the School Handbook (the primary competition preparation resource). We'll email you a notification once your kit has been shipped.

    School Competition

    The School Competition is the first level of the Competition Series. The 2021 School Competition will be available starting in November 2020 at www.mathcounts.org/coaches. Please note, as the competition coach for your school, you can use the School Competition in the way that works best for your students—whether that means administering an official competition or using the test as a practice resource. There is no limit on the number of students who can participate in the School Competition.
