Teams can have a maximum of 6 members, including you. Each team needs to identify a team captain and only the team captain can setup the team in the new Challenge Portal when they register or after they register. The team captain will have the opportunity to invite people to join their team by entering the members’ email and the system will automatically send each possible team member an email to join the team. Once the team members receive the request via email, they will follow the instructions on-line so they can join the team.
Only the team captain can make changes to the team composition. If you desire to change teams, be sure to contact your current team leader so they can remove you from that team. Once completed, contact the new team captain so they enter the Challenge Portal and send you an email invite to join the team.
