National spelling bee "Family" registration?

I don't know that our homeschool group has enough interested participants to actually do a school level bee, and I see on the site that homeschoolers can register (for $89-Yikes!) as individuals. Has anyone done this? There is a homeschool preliminary in the area, but it's run by a group that requires a statement of faith that I'm not comfortable signing, and since they go by age/grade, DD isn't actually eligible to do their national bee preliminary-and won't be until she's 12 or so-by which time I suspect she'll have run afoul of the national bee's "number of high school classes" rule, because she's pretty solidly on middle school level content NOW, and starting to do more outside classes.
