3. Online Registration of Players for Participation in CBSE Sports Events: Schools intending to sponsor their students/teams for participation in CBSE sports events should visit the CBSE website and complete the following 3 steps:

a) Step 1 - Registration:
  • The schools may register their students online by filling out the form available at above mentioned link by clicking ‘Register Student’. A UID is created for every student.

  • This registration is to be done only once and the same UID of the student will continue for all the coming years till she/ he is studying in CBSE school(s).

  • If any student already has the UID of the previous year(s), then this step of Registration is NOT required for that student, and the UID of the previous year(s) should be used to complete the second step as mentioned below.

b) Step 2 - Apply to Participate:

  • After registering the student, click ‘Apply to Participate’, to sponsor the student in any game(s). This step is mandatory to participate in CBSE games.

  • It may be noted that for new students both the steps (‘Register a Student’ and ‘Apply to Participate’) are mandatory. However, for those students who were registered in previous years, only the 2nd step (Apply to Participate) is required. Their previous year’s Registration Number (UID) will be used for this year also.

c) Step 3 - Send Confirmation to Organizing School(s):

  • After completing the above mentioned both the steps (‘Register Student’ and ‘Apply to Participate’), the participating schools should send an email to the organizing school(s) for confirmation of their participation at least one week prior to the event, so that the organizing school(s) may make arrangements accordingly.

Note: The schools not completing the above steps (a to c) before the last date, will not be able to participate in CBSE games.
