You cannot add yourself to a tournament. If you want to participate in a Tournament, your workplace or community Coordinator will need to add you as a Team Captain or as a participant in a team.
Each 10,000 Steps member is registered as an individual with their own 10,000 Steps account where steps and activity can be logged. If you would like to participate in a Tournament, please notify your Coordinator of the email address which you have used to register with the 10,000 Steps website. They can use it to add you to a team. If you are participating in a workplace organised Tournament, we recommend using your organisational email address.
Once you have been added to your team, you will receive an email notification and you will be able to view the Tournament on your Dashboard. Each team member can see their team progress, Tournament details and accumulated steps logged by each of their team mates.
The registration process functions in this way as the 10,000 Steps website has over 400,000 users with many organisations registered. Many organisations are under the same and similar names in both similar and different locations. The Coordinator adding members using a unique email address reduces the risk of human error during the registration process and also maintains privacy and confidentiality for all users of the website.
Accessing Upcoming Tournaments
Once you are added to a Tournament, you will receive an automatic email notification. If the Tournament is starting soon, you can access it by visiting your Dashboard, scrolling down to the Tournaments card and viewing the your Upcoming Tournament section. To be added to a Tournament, your Coordinator or team captain must have added you using the email address associated with your 10,000 Steps account. We recommend using an organisational email address and ensuring this is the address you have provided to your Coordinator.
Accessing Current Tournaments
Once a Tournament has started that you have been added to, you will have a specific card for that Tournament on your Dashboard. This will enable you to see a snapshot of your team information and the top ranked 3 teams. By clicking "View Tournament" on the grey banner at the bottom of the card, you will be able to view the Leaderboard.
