Signing in to RK9.gg

We use Google Accounts for authentication, so the email address used to sign in to RK9.gg needs to be a primary Google Account email (not an email used as an alternate or recovery email for a Google Account). We believe Google has best-in-class account security features, and so we rely on them to vouch for who the player is (authentication), and then we allow you to access certain things (authorization).

Note: Each player must have their own RK9.gg account in order to register for tournaments.


If you would like to use an existing email address that is not connected to a Google Account, this article has instructions on how to connect it. Once it has been connected to a Google Account, Google will be able to identify you for authentication purposes.

Please note this email must be the main Google Account email. It cannot be an alternate or alias email, nor a recovery email listed in a Google Account. You can verify the email addresses associated with your Google Account, and their roles, by going to your Google Account Profile - Personal info - Contact info Emails. We use the Google Account email, shown at the very top, for authentication.

If your child doesn’t have a Google Account, or you prefer to set up a new one for them to use to sign into RK9.gg, you can create a managed Google Account using Google Families. More information about Google Families can be found at https://families.google.com/families, including how to get started.

Next step – edit your child’s profile

You’ll need to edit your child’s profile before you can register them for a tournament. Please see our knowledge base article – How do I edit my profile – for more information.


Note: It is critical that you enter your child’s information in the profile. 
Registrations are valid for the named player only and are not transferable.


Register your child

Once your child’s profile is complete, you are ready for registration. A registration link is normally found on the organizer’s website or social media pages. If the tournament requires information that is not complete in your child’s profile, you will be prompted to fill in the missing information. Once that is done, return to the registration page to begin again.


Note: Registrations are not valid for entry until payment has been verified and a confirmation is received.
