What does "Join a Team" mean?

This allows you to register and join a fundraising team that’s already been created (by another teammate). You do not have to join a fundraising team, and you can always join one after initially registering as an individual at any time.

*This has nothing to do with the team you represent while on the mats. That team name (which shows up in the brackets and on our scoreboards) is derived from what you type into the “Academy/Team” field while filling out the registration form. So if you don’t plan to fundraise, it’s not necessary to join or create a team (though you can if you want).
