RK9 uses Google Accounts for authentication and authorization, so your child will need a Google Account.

If your child doesn’t have a Google Account, or you prefer to set up a new one for them to use to sign into, you can create a managed Google Account using Google Families.

Google has a support article that walks you through the steps to create and manage your family group.


Once you have a Google Account you wish to use go to For detailed instructions on how to sign in, see Signing in to

In these cases the registration link is normally shared on their website or social media pages.


The information on registration pages will guide you through the registration process.

If the tournament requires information that is not complete in your child’s profile, you will be prompted to fill in the missing information.

Once that is done, return to the registration page to begin again.


IMPORTANT NOTES: Tournament Registrations are only valid for the named player on the registration, they are not transferable.

Registrations are not completed until payment has been completed and a confirmation has been received.
