Event Setup: Team Registration Options

In order to (hopefully) meet your every need, imATHLETE gives you 8 different options for setting up team registration.  Yup, 8 of 'em.  You probably didn't even know there were so many different considerations, eh.

Here's what it basically boils down to:

  • Individual Registration: Gives registrants the option to join a team. It is not required
  • Team (non-relay): Like individual registration but requires registrants to be on a team
  • Relay Team: Requires all relay participants to be registered at one time

For Individual and Team (non-relay) options, you also have the following choices:

  • Create or Join a team: Registrants can either create a new team or join an existing one
  • Create a team only:  If you have a Team Captain sign-up option, use this.  
  • Join a team only: If you have a Team Captain option, you'll need a Team Member registration option. This is it.  They can't create a team, they can only join an existing one.


  • Go to Event Setup
  • Click Classes + Categories (left side)
  • Click Edit next to the Class name (or learn how to create a Class here)
  • In the "Class Type" section, you'll see the team options

    IMPORTANT:  Team names go across classes.  For instance, if you allow teams for a 5k and a 10k class, all the teams that show for the 5k will also appear in the 10k registration dropdown, and vice versa.
