No, we only need the team captain to sign up the team in our registration system. The captain can use the Competition Handbook team forms to assign employees to each event. We will not monitor which events the individuals sign up for. It is the responsibility of the team captain to ensure that the appropriate number of people are present for each event.
What if we do not have enough participants to compete in all events?

Teams can earn points by donating blood (in advance), raising money for the United Way and by bringing non-perishable food and gently-used clothing to the West Michigan Corporate Challenge.
Do we have to have a team uniform?
Each team should have their own team uniform/shirt for September 8. Shirts should be the same color, so our volunteers can easily tell teams apart during competition. You can get enter in the Uniform Contest by emailing a photo of your uniform to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 4.
