Anyone on the Participation Roster may participate or substitute in any event as long as they meet the age/gender requirements. Substitutes for age group events must be in the same age group as the original entrant.
A valid driver’s license or other picture ID may be required for identification before a substitute is allowed to participate. Participants who are asked and are unable to produce an ID at the games will not be allowed to participate, or will be forfeited from the event.
Earning Points for Your Team
All teams will receive two (2) points for each event in which they participate.
Points will be awarded to teams placing in events as follows:
- 1st Place 10 points
- 2nd Place 8 points
- 3rd Place 6 points
- 4th Place 4 points
- 5th Place 2 points
- 6th Place 1 point
- The 5K Walk event is worth 5 points to each finisher
- 5th & 6th place finishers in the double-elimination events will each receive 1.5 points
Corporate Challenge is designed to promote teamwork within a company. Therefore, those events that require a large number of participants, 3-on-3 Basketball, Volleyball, Softball, Flag Football and Dodgeball will be awarded double the number of points for each place.
How Ties are Resolved
In the case of a tie in the divisional championship standings (teams are tied for the most points overall), the winner will be declared by the team with the most 1st Place finishes. If still tied, the winner will be declared by the team with the most 2nd Place finishes, and so on.
Ties in each individual event will be broken according to the rules written in the “Event Rules” section or by the Games Office.
Corporate Challenge enlists the aid of certified officials for track, flag football, volleyball, and basketball. All officials, including scoring and timing personnel, are independent contractors who meet the criteria established by their respective organizations.
In the case of a dispute during an event, the decision as interpreted by the Official is final. Team scores are not official until they have been reviewed by the Games Office.
Default & Withdrawal
Once the schedules are set, it’s very difficult to change them to accommodate teams that withdraw or default. Your opponents are geared up for their events, facilities are booked, and officials/volunteers are waiting. Please make every effort to be at the events in which your team signed up to participate.
The deadline for withdrawing from events without penalty is July 21. After July 21, four (4) points will be deducted from your company’s overall score if your team withdraws or defaults (does not show up).
Disqualification, Suspensions, and other Penalties
Wichita Corporate Challenge reserves the rights to disqualify, suspend, or remove any participant, captain, spectator, team, or company that conducts himself or herself in an unsportsmanlike manner before, during, or after any event or game. Physical aggression and/or verbal abuse toward other participants, volunteers, officials, spectators and staff will not be tolerated.
