  1. Congratulations on your advancement!

    The authorization code for purchasing pins is located on the pin flier you received at your regional tournament.

    As for the password you received from the National site after registering your team for the state competition, that password is for the national site only. It does not have any connection to the state website. You should not need any password or sign in login to use the state website.

    If you need any further assistance please feel free to contact your regional director or us here.

    Congratulations to you and your team.

  2. It is preferred that the one order is placed by the coach or coordinator. Pins are only available to competitors at the state tournament. The pins are picked up at the state tournament under the team name by the coach or coordinator. Individual orders are not taken for that reason. Please order for your team to complete the order. This will prevent any confusion and will assure that the team receives the correct order.

    Thank you.

      1. Mindy,
        Sorry for the confusion. Our policy is normally that one order per team is taken. Our pin coordinator has made an exception for your situation. Thank you for checking again. Again, sorry for any confusion that may have been caused.

        Congratulations to your team and see you in Riverside.

  3. No need to worry. Your order is being filled and will be ready for you to pick up a the state tournament. As indicated on the website and the order form Coaches ONLY can pick up pin order by the Bell Tower which is located in the center of the UCR campus, so just be sure to stop by and get your order. Nothing is mailed out.

    Safe travels.

  4. Hi Mark,

    Is there a limit on the number of pins per team? I think in the past there was. Some parents are wanting orders for siblings.

    Thanks! Barbara Falat

    1. Barbara:
      You are correct. There is a limit of of eight sets of pins per team advancing to the state competition.

      Congratulations on your team advancing to the state competition. See you in Brentwood.

  5. Hello,

    Can the coaches order pins for themselves as well? We have 7 team members and 2 coaches so I would need 9 Sets, but It will only let me order 8.


    1. Alex,

      At this time, each team can order eight sets of pins per team. At the state competition your assistant coach can check at the pin table to see if there is addition sets for purchase.

    1. Deborah:

      Only teams advancing to the state competition can order pins. On the information that you received regarding pin orders, pin order form, you will find this years AUTHORIZATION CODE. If you are unable to locate that information on the form please email

      Congratulations on your teams advancement to the state tournament.
