Team Coach | Lead Mentor
Here's what you need to know.
The Team Coach is the lead mentor for the team - or the "Responsible Adult" that is the main point of contact. The Team Coach should be available to answer any and all emails that may come from competition coordinators. Except for extremely rare cases with EXPLORER class teams, the Lead Mentor should NOT be an active student team participant.
Student Registration Process
All participating students MUST have registration completed and all waivers signed by the registration deadline to participate. If you have students without internet access, print the appropriate waiver pages, send to the student's parent/guardian to complete. Once you have received the completed, signed copies, it is the Team Coaches responsibility to complete the student's registration process in Active on behalf of the parent/guardian without internet access. Copies of the signed proxy and waiver forms must be scanned and e-mailed or snail-mailed to your regional coordinator. There is no need to do this for all students - just those whose parents do not have access to the internet.
Titled the "Team Captain"
Please note that throughout the team creation process you will be called the "Team Captain" - this is okay - to competition officials, we will know you are the Team Coach. However, your team will still need to identify a participating student to serve as the "Company CEO", but that is not required when registering your team.
Each competition event offers class selections (SCOUT, NAVIGATOR, RANGER, PIONEER, and EXPLORER). You will need to select the appropriate competition class and pay the team registration fee associated with the Team Coach/Mentor tuition. Be sure to send an email inviting your team members to join by sharing the link, the team name, and password.
