For the 2016-17 season we have partnered with Concept2 to bring you the Concept2 Team Challenge. Now, not only can you play against all other fantasy teams for amazing prizes and against your teammates and friends in your personal leagues, but you can also play with your teammates to compete against other teams in the Concept2 Team Challenge! Best of all, the winning team or club at the end of the season will receive a SkiErg from Concept2!
Here’s how it works:
You create an “official” league for your club or team by selecting the checkbox when creating your league.
Any level of team/club may participate, be it middle school, high school, elite, masters, college, community, or some mix of all of these.
If you did not select the checkbox but want your league to be in the competition, just email email@example.com and we'll get you squared away.
You can tell if a club is verified if a white checkmark on a blue background shows up next to its name in the list of leagues.
Unfortunately, only United States based teams and clubs are eligible to enter the Concept2 Team Challenge. Please do not enter your league in the team challenge if you are not based in the U.S. as we cannot ship the SkiErg internationally.
Limit one competing league per club or team. Please try to coordinate with your teammates so only one league from each club or team is entered in the Concept2 Team Challenge.
Please use you team or club’s official and recognizable name when creating your official league.
We'll try our best to make sure participating clubs and teams are legitimate; if we erroneously remove your league from the competition, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once your official league is created, it will act like every other league. You will still see your ranking and score against the other fantasy teams in your league. However, we will also be scoring your league against other official leagues to create our Concept2 Team Challenge standings.
We will calculate your league’s score by adding together the sum of the top four fantasy teams in your official league for each event. The top four teams for any given event may not be the same as the top four players in your overall league standings, as we are not taking the season-long total from each fantasy team, but the highest four scores from each event. Therefore, your league’s total will probably be greater than the sum of your top four fantasy teams.
The more of your teammates that you get to play fantasy and be a part of your official league, the better chance your league has of winning.
Your team will earn points for every World Cup event PLUS the World Championships.
If a fantasy team joins your official league mid-season, their points will not be retroactively awarded; if they leave, their points will not be retroactively removed.
