Start a Team

More than one hundred different New Hampshire schools and organizations sponsor Destination Imagination teams each year. We have DI teams from public and private schools, homeschooling associations, and service organizations such as the Boys and Girls Clubs.

If you think your child might enjoy DI, contact your local school or organization to ask about this. If there is an existing DI program, they can put you in touch with your local DI coordinator. If they don’t have a DI program yet, please contact NH-DI! We’d be happy to help you set up a new DI program. It really isn’t very difficult to do this, especially if you’re just starting and will only have one or two teams.

There are many ways in which we can help you. For example, we can usually find volunteers to come to your school for a DI Information Night, and talk to the parents about Destination Imagination. Or we can ask someone who has started a DI program at their own school to give you a call to answer any questions that you might have. So why not send us a quick email, or pick up the phone and give us a call? We’d love to hear from you!

Register your New Hampshire Destination Imagination team

Once you have enough interested students and parents to form a team, here are the three quick steps you’ll need to take to register the team:

  1. To get started, you’ll need to purchase your Team Number and the program materials from Destination Imagination’s international headquarters. This will allow you to download and use the program materials, which include the Team Challenges for this season. This is a prerequisite for registering for one of the NH-DI regional tournaments (step 3).
  2. Register your Team Manager(s) for one of our New Team Manager Workshops. This full-day training workshop isn’t mandatory, and there are training tools available online and in the program materials provided with each Team Number. But there is really no substitute for having an opportunity to be in the room with other new and experienced Team Managers, so please try to clear your calendar and go. You’ll be very glad you did! The dates and locations will be posted on our Calendar of Events. Instructions on how to register are on our training page.
  3. The final step is to register your team for their regional tournament. Once you log into your user account (or create a new account), you will need to enter the additional information that NH-DI will need in order to schedule your team to present their Team Challenge solution at one of our tournaments. Your team’s location within New Hampshire will determine the regional tournament to which they will be assigned. Once tournament registration is open (which will happen as soon as we can confirm all of the regional tournament locations and dates), newly purchased Team Numbers should show up on NH-DI’s registration site within a day or two, and then you’ll be able to complete your team’s registration.

We also have a separate page with much more detailed step-by-step instructions. NH teams must register by December 15th to avoid late fees.
