Fielding a TeaM
Companies will compete within one of four divisions based on their total number of West Michigan employees (full-time and part-time; employees must be 18+ years old). Spouses of employees are welcome to participate. The Corporate Challenge is designed so that companies can be competitive with as few as 10 participants or bring as many as 100 participants to share in the competition.
Companies will be encouraged to designate a team captain or co-captains to work with employees and the Corporate Challenge staff. The team captain(s) will recruit their coworkers to fill the events. Teams will be responsible for scheduling as some events will overlap throughout the main day of competition. The Corporate Challenge staff will provide more detailed information and a contact person to field questions. There will be a captain’s meeting the week before the West Michigan Corporate Challenge starts to answer any questions teams may have. Waivers can be turned in at this meeting.
