1. If I’m Matrixed to a CFT what team am I on?
You are on the team you are matrixed to.
2. Can I be on more than one tournament team?
We recommend no. If your team keeps winning, you’ll keep playing.
3. If my team is eliminated, can I participate in other activities to earn points?
YES! Feel free to walk around the track, donate blood, or check to see if there’s room at a Wellbeats Group Fitness Class.
4. Can I do more than one activity during the morning?
YES! You can mix and match as much as you like. Most activities (non-tournament) start on the hour. For example, 5K Fun Run/Walk followed by Scavenger Hunt or Corn Hole followed by Disc Golf.
If you are interested in volunteering (volunteers earn team points, too!), contact the Community Support Coordinator at 661-275-4543 for details.
Let the games begin!
