Up to three teams per school can register for a regional competition. A school can register up to three teams, Team 1 (first team), Team 2 (second team), and Team 3 (third team), as soon as the registration period opens. Teams will be approved on a first-come, first-served basis determined by the date/time stamp when their registration was submitted, with first teams taking precedence over second teams, and second teams taking precedence over third teams, with the goal of as many different schools participating as possible.

Upon availability, UTRGV will begin approving second teams on January 12, 2018, and third teams will be approved by January 26, 2018.
