How to add or update your THSCA, TGCA, or ATAVUS IDs

******It is important to register for the activity you coach after logging in.******

UIL's Rules & Compliance Program requires you to complete a series of modules related to your sport or academic topic. If you are not registered for an activity, then you will not have access to these modules. Registering for the activity you coach will also give you access to communications related to your activity from the UIL. If you are not registered for an activity, then you will not be included in any communications related to that activity.

Click “Take Test” in the “Name/Best Attempt” box if you are ready to take the test, or click the “Back to Registration” button at the top of the page if you are not ready to take the test. You can come back any time to take the test.

  4. After finishing the test click “Finish Test.” Your score for that section of a module will appear in the “Attempt History” box. If you do not meet the required 70% you will need to retake that section at some point to finish the registration process; that module will have an “Incomplete” status on your registration page until you get a passing 70% on all sections of a module. Once you pass all sections of the module you can click the “Print Certificate of Completion” button at the top of the page if needed. When a module has been passed, that module will have a “Complete” status.
