Team Registration

Teams of four can consist of any faculty, staff, and students. Each team must have a team captain whose responsibility is to encourage fellow members to submit their weekly scorecards and who will serve as the point of contact during the Challenge. Registration opens January 14 and runs through February 1. Sign up using the Registration Form.


Score keeping begins February 4 and continues until the challenge ends on March 10. Each team member is responsible for completing and submitting their weekly scorecard to their team captain. Team captains are responsible for submitting the team summary scorecard by noon (12:00 p.m.) every Wednesday to the Challenge Coordinator. Scorecards submitted on time with full team's scores will earn an extra 20 points.
