TEAM CAPTAINS


Biz-Dash_Register_Manage-Your-Team_175pxA Team Captain must be designated by each company to coordinate their team. It is encouraged and recommended that teams assign multiple Team Captains if your team is larger than 8 people. (Please Note: Only one (1) team is allowed to be created per company. Teams may have an unlimited number of participants.)

 

The Team Captain(s) is responsible for:

  • Creating the company team on the registration page.
  • Setting the company team preferences and payment methods.
  • Advertising and recruiting employees company-wide to participate.
  • Informing employees how to join the company team.
  • Making additional purchases in the captain store regarding tents, tables and chairs.
  • Ordering food and beverages for your team tent.
  • Finalizing the team roster to ensure all participants register before the deadline.
  • Coordinating company team packet pick-up.
  • Distributing and communicating race day materials and information to their team participants.
  • Motivating the company to participate in the t-shirt contest and entering the company’s t-shirt design.

 

**Those interested in getting their company involved and/or becoming a Team Captain will receive a Team Captain Guide book that explains all the steps for registering, setting up your team, and promoting the event at your company.  Team Captain Guides will be mailed out within 2-4 business days from the time of request.
