Arnold Athlete Email #5
Coach Registration
Did you or your coach forget to register by Feb 14th?

The original deadline (Feb 14) was to allow us to submit the names to the Arnold organizers for the free Arnold Expo wristbands by the their deadline.

The plan was to have anyone who missed the registration deadline to register at the meet itself. But, wee have opted to re-open the Coach Registration Form for late registration to help you avoid the extra task come meet day. The online registration form has now been extended to Monday, March 2nd @ 5pm EST.

This is a 2-step process, please read below.

STEP 1:  Coaches to register here: COACHES REGISTRATION FORM by March 2nd @ 5pm EST

STEP 2:  Once registered, coaches will need to pass your  UniqueID  to the athlete so they may add it to the  Athlete Change Form .

All coaches who registered by Feb 14th will receive an Arnold Expo wristband that will give you access all three days of the expo. Any who register after will be required to purchase your Arnold Expo wristband through the Arnold ticket booths located throughout the convention center during the Arnold weekend.
