FAQ: Teams and the Qualifier
Q: How do I register my Team for the online qualifier?
A: First, all the athletes on your team must register as Individuals. Next, your team captain will register your team by using the athlete IDs that each teammate receives in their confirmation email. Team registration deadline is July 1st, when the scores for Events 1 and 2 are due.
Q: How much does the Qualifier cost?
A: Individual registration is $25. Registration for your whole team is $25. We chose to go this route instead of just charging a higher team registration fee because we know some people would also like to try to qualify individual. We wanted to make it cost as little as possible for all athletes.
Q: How does the Team Qualifier work?
A: During the Online Qualifier, the individual scores of each teammate will combine to form the team ranking. You do NOT have to do the workouts with your teammates, you will do them as an individual. During the qualifier, you will be able to track your team's ranking on the live leaderboard. After the final scores are submitted on July 8th and scores are validated, qualifying teams will receive their invitations to Dakota Games.
Q: What happens if I qualify as both an individual and a team?
A: If you qualify as an individual, you have the option to decline your invite and compete at Dakota Games with your team. If you accept your individual invite, your team has the option to replace you with a substitute. If the substitute athlete did not do the online qualifier, there will be a fee to add them as a sub for Dakota Games. If the substitute athlete did do the online qualifier, they can be subbed for no charge.
