I have a group of kids who are ready to get started in NYDI. How do I register my team?

If your school, school district, or organization already has a relationship with NYDI, then they will help you register your team. If you aren't sure who to talk to, feel free to contact us for information.

If you just want to sign up an individual team, please visit START A TEAM.

I want to participate, but there is no team here…

Good news! All it takes to form a team is 2-7 kids who are interested, and an adult who can serve as the Team Manager. Any adult can be a Team Manager! We provide great Program Materials, multiple training sessions and mentoring programs for Team Managers. Some Destination Imagination teams are associated with schools, but others are associated with a youth group, scouts, or are completely independent / parent run. Anyone can form a team, with or without the participation of their school district, and there is no specific "location" for DI!

To learn more please contact our eastern region director.

We are ready to buy our Team Membership now!

It's easy! See the instructions at START A TEAM.

I've paid my fees, now what?

Once you have purchased your Team Number, the Program Materials will be distributed and teams can begin working on their solutions!

Once your team has started meeting, you should register for an Instant Challenge Fiesta, held in January or February, and for a Regional Tournament, where the team can show off their solution, and square off against other teams. The top teams advance to the New York Affiliate Finals, and onward to Destination Imagination Global Finals.
