Do I have to register all 8 team members at once?
No. The team captain will have to register, create a team name and password, and pay for the team. This will automatically add their team name to the dropdown. The captain will receive a confirmation email with the team password in it, and a link to the registration page, so they can forward it to other team members. The Team Members will then register, they will choose their team from a dropdown and enter the team password. This enables each participant to sign the waiver for legal purposes.
