All you need to know about creating a team

The Swan Valley Mudfest is all about running a muck and sharing some laughs with family and friends! So why not grab a group together and run as a team? Better yet, dress up and be in the chance to win the Best Dressed Prize for the day!

There are three simple ways to register and create a team, just follow the instructions below that suit you best:

ALL TEAM MEMBERS REGISTER INDIVIDUALLY:

This option is best for those who want to register in their own time, and pay their own way.

  1. The Team Captain needs to be the first person to register. The captain is able to see who else has registered in the team through MyEvents and manage their team. For more information on managing your team, click here.
  2. The Team Captain needs to register for their preferred time wave via the Swan Valley Mudfest registration link. On the second page of the registration process under TEAM INFORMATION select “Create A Team”. Type in the team name of your preference and select “No” to pre-paying for other team members.
  3. >The Team Captain can then continue to finish their registration as usual, and the team will be created upon payment.
  4. All other team members can then register themselves through the Swan Valley Mudfest registration link, but they need to make sure they choose the same time wave as the Team Captain
  5. The only difference is, under TEAM INFORMATION they select “Join A Team” and type in the name of the team they want to join. The matching team options will show in a drop down box below. Simply select the team you want to join into, and finish your registration.
  6. When registering individually, please keep in mind that the time wave of your preference may sell out in the time it takes for all team members to register, as without payment we cannot guarantee their will be spots available. The best way to prevent this is to register within a close time frame, or have the Team Captain pre-pay for all registrations as outlined in the two options below.

ALL TEAM MEMBERS REGISTERED AND PAID FOR TOGETHER:

This option is best for those who are registering children under the age of 18 years and who know the details of all the teammates and want to ensure everyone can fit in the timewave chosen:

  1. The Team Captain needs to be the first person to register, and will be the person who pays for all registrations. The captain is able to see who else is registered in the team through MyEvents and manage their team. For more information on managing your team, click here. The Team Captain need to be 18+ years.
  2. The Team Captain needs to choose their preferred time wave via the Swan Valley Mudfest registration link. On the second page of the registration process under SELECT PARTICIPANT, the Team Captain needs to choose “Yourself, 18+ or older” and fill in the rest of the registration as themselves.
  3. Under TEAM INFORMATION select “Create A Team”. Type in the team name of your preference and select “No” to pre-paying for other team members.
  4. The Team Captain can then continue to finish their registration as usual, and when you reach the CHECKOUT page, select “+ Add Another Registration” located on the top right corner.
  5. You can then continue to register all the other members of the team. Please ensure you select the same time wave as the Team Captains registration, and on the second page under SELECT PARTICIPANT that you select “Someone Else, 18 0r Over” or “Someone Else, 18 0r Under” to ensure you don’t double up on registering yourself.
  6. Under TEAM INFORMATION select “Join A Team” and the team you created in the first registration will be an automatic option. Simply select this team and finish the registration.
  7. You can repeat these steps to add as many team members as you’d like.


TEAM CAPTAIN REGISTERS AND PRE-PAYS FOR OTHER TEAM MEMBERS:

This option is best for those who want to prepay for team members, allowing you to reserve a place on your team without having to enter in all the registration details for others.

  1. The Team Captain needs to be the first person to register. The captain is able to see who else is registered in the team through MyEvents and manage their team. For more information on managing your team, click here.
  2. The Team Captain needs to register for their preferred time wave via the Swan Valley Mudfest registration link. On the second page of the registration process under TEAM INFORMATION select “Create A Team”. Type in the team name of your preference and select “Yes” to pre-paying for other team members. Select the number of participants you want to pre-pay for. Please note, only add the number of pre-paid registrations, not including yourself as you are already registering as the Team Captain.
  3. The Team Captain can then continue to finish their registration as usual, and the team will be created upon payment.
  4. Please double check the number of registrations at the checkout, as it is a common mistake to register the Team Captain twice.
  5. After you complete your registration, you will be able to send pre-paid invitations to your friends & family from My Events and they will enter their own registration information.
  6. Simply open your confirmation email and click the link to login to your MyEvents account.
  7.  In your MyEvents account their will be a link to “Invite pre-paid team members”. Click this link, and it will generate the unique link for you to send to your teammate to complete their registration, without them having to pay again. Please make sure you invite ALL of your teammates by generating a new link per person.
