REGISTRATION INSTRUCTIONS AND POLICIES
REGISTRATION IS A 2-STEP PROCESS:
STEP 1: Register Online
STEP 2: Registration Form Drop-Off
To get started, scroll down to the bottom of this page and select the division you want to register for. The program is setup to allow you to register a child only in a division that meets their age requirements. Once selected, click the BEGIN REGISTRATION button to start the registration process.
Returning Players: Simply log in with your email and password, verify all the information is correct, and then continue on with the registration.
New Players: If you are new to the system, enter your email address only. The website will email you a temporary password to use for sign-in. You can later change your password to anything you like.
Forgot Your Password or Not Sure If You Have An Account?: Enter your email address only and your password will be emailed to that address.
NOTE: If you've registered your child online for one of the Cooper City Optimist Sports Program, to avoid duplicate accounts for your household and to ensure your player's history remains intact, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if your information does not appear and we will get your account assigned to your current email. What we've typically found is that an old email is listed for your account and all that needs to be done is add the new email. Normally this will be done within 24-hours. Also, if you have several email addresses associated with your account, any one of them will pull up your account.)
