Crew Manager Check In Appointments

We will be scheduling appointments for crew manager check in at the festival again this year, to ensure efficient service. Walk-ins are welcome, but priority will be given to crew managers with appointments. Please book your check in appointments here:

Last Minute Crew Member Registration Form

Any crew members who are not registered before registration closes on June 15 will need to submit a paper registration form and waiver. The crew manager will need to bring the registration forms to the crew manager check in on the festival Friday. Any crew members who are not registered (either online or via paper) will not be provided wrist bands. Download the registration form here.


Everyone must submit a waiver before they are allowed to participate in practices or races, every year.

Adults: Adults may accept the online waiver during online registration or submit a paper waiver. Adults who share an email address must submit a paper waiver. Download the adult waiver here.

Youth: Youth ages 12 – 17 must submit a paper waiver. Download the youth waiver here. Youth will also accept the adult waiver when they register online, but the youth waiver supersedes the adult waiver for youth.

You can bring a signed waiver with you when participate for the first time this year. Practice and race officials will have printed reports of waivers received; if the report does not show that you have submitted a waiver online or in paper, you will be asked to sign a paper waiver before participating.

Waivers include a photo release and our privacy statement.

Payment Information

Festival fees must be received on or before the registration deadline. Registration is only deemed complete once payment of registration fees is completed. The LRDBF reserves the right to request immediate payment in the event that registration for one or all divisions sells out. If payment is not received, a team from the waiting list will receive your registration slot. All fees are in Canadian dollars. We do not charge sales tax. Your fees are not tax deductible as charitable donations.

Withdrawal Policy and Refunds

There is a 15% administrative fee for all crew withdrawals. The final withdrawal date is the registration closing date.

Overview of the Registration Process

High Level

  1. Crew manager creates a crew, including a crew password.
  2. Crew manager invites crew members to join the crew, either by using the built-in email invitation system, or by sharing the crew name and password with crew members. If a crew member has the crew name and password, they can go to the registration site and register themselves for your crew, with or without an email invitation.
  3. Crew members register themselves and accept their waivers.


For a detailed look at the registration process, and what happens behind the scenes when you register, check out the registration process diagram here. Note that it prints on an 11″x17″ page. The blue boxes happen within the Active Sports Network registration system, and the orange boxes happen elsewhere.
