You can register for any number of sports. Once you have registered for a sport you can enter as many events in that sport as are indicated on the information page for that sport, but it is your responsibility to make sure that your registered events do not clash.

You only pay one fee for each sport, so you can enter as many events for each sport as are permitted at no extra cost. Again please refer to the individual sport information pages for further information.

Registration for a sport requires you to choose the sport, event, level, age group etc. Some sports also require you to fill in additional personal information regarding your current grade, current time or wether you are aiming for a record in this event.
