REGISTRATION TIMELINE FOR NORCAL MASTERS 2017! Including: Extended Date for donating to our Event Charity to Secure Your spot!


Here’s some news for those of you anxiously awaiting the registration links for NorCal Masters 2017.  We have three registration groups:

  1. Athletes who secured a spot by donating to our event charity, JUGGLING FOR JUDE. (There’s still time to donate and save a spot. Just go here, donate at least $100, email, and you’ll get the early registration link. You ABSOLUTELY MUST DO THIS BY OCTOBER 31st in order to get priority! Your donation does not cover any part of registration fees; rather, your donation secures you a spot but you still pay the event registration).
  2. Athletes who are members of TJ’s Gyms and/or who COMPETED or judged full-time at NorCal Masters 2015 or 2016.
  3. PUBLIC–all eligible athletes who do not fit into the groups above.

**Please note that any athlete who registers in an early group (via a friend sharing the link) but is not eligible to do so will be banned from competing. We don’t mean to sound harsh, but this is the only way we know how to legitimately prioritize those who have earned early registration status!


**11/7 at 8:00 am PST: Early registration opens for group 1–Juggling for Jude donors. This priority registration will close on 11/11/16 at midnight PST, so be sure you register by then. You should have received an email already if you’re in this group.

**11/14 at 8:00 am PST: Registration opens for TJ’s Gym members and all former NCM athletes from 2015 and 2016. This priority registration will close at 11/16/16 at midnight PST.  You will receive an email with the link in plenty of time to register! 

**11/18 at 8:00 am PST: Registration opens to the public. If history serves as a guide, spots in most divisions will set out within minutes, so be sure you’re ready to go at that time!

Please note that there will be NO refunds on registration, so once you register, you’re in!  You will not get a refund should you get hurt or become otherwise unable to compete.  The event demand has become so great that we cannot have people holding spots and dropping out at the last minute, with our costs not being covered.

Announcing the 2017 NORCAL MASTERS!
Our 7th-annual NCM will take place on January 28 and 29, 2017 at the Craneway Pavilion in Richmond, CA.
We will post NCM 2017 registration info in November, and we will offer a BRIEF priority registration period to all athletes who competed in 2015 or 2016.  As we did last year, this year we are also offering a way to guarantee your spot and avoiding the mad rush to register. This time we are adding a raffle for anyone who participates in the guaranteed entry process!

Anyone who donates at least $100 by October 15th, 2016 to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital via our event charity, Juggling for Jude, will be guaranteed to get an athlete spot at NCM 2017 AND will be placed in a raffle for a FREE NCM 2017 entry fee. That’s right, all you have to do is donate to this amazing research hospital saving kids with cancer, and your spot will be held for you without having to worry about the mad rush to refresh your browser come registration day.  Plus, you’ll get a virtual raffle ticket, putting you in the running for a FREE NCM entry. We will give out at least TWO free entries. This donation offer extends to ALL ATHLETES, not just returning ones. It’s a great way to break into this sell-out event without worrying about it. Your donation, of course, guarantees you a spot but does not cover registration fees.

Just go here to donate by October 15h, 2016 and then email to let us know you’d like to reserve your spot at this sell-out event. If you already donated $100 or more to Juggling for Jude in the summer of 2016, just let us know, and you will be placed on the guaranteed list and in the raffle, as well. Thank you in advance for your generosity and support of Juggling for Jude—a long-term labor of love for our now 11-year-old soccer juggling daughter.

*If you are interested in sponsorship opportunities for the NCM 2016, please email As you know, our event is a great way to reach a wide audience of masters athletes and their families. We also need JUDGES and VOLUNTEERS, so please start spreading the word now! Interested helpers should email
