Accessing the Tournament

Before you can access the Tournament, your Coordinator or Team Captain will need to add you to your team.

Once you have been added to your team, you will be able to access the Tournament by clicking on the Tournament card on your Dashboard if has already started. If your Tournament has not yet started, click on the View Tournaments Dashboard card where you will be able to view your Upcoming Tournaments.

Logging Steps

To contribute to your team steps during the Tournament you will need to log steps in your own online 10,000 Steps account. Only steps logged during the time frame of your Tournament will be included in the team total. It is your responsibility to be actively involved and regularly log steps on the 10,000 Steps website.

To log your steps for the day click on the plus sign on the Dashboard and enter the number of steps you have walked or the activity in minutes. Alternatively you can click on the Step Log button on your Dashboard which enables you to enter steps and activity in minutes for numerous days. Entering activity in minutes will add the estimated step conversion onto your daily total, increasing your step count. If you plan on entering moderate and vigorous activity during your Tournament timeframe please talk to your Coordinator to check if this can be included.

To connect your 10,000 Steps account with Fitbit, please go to your Tracker Details in your 10,000 Steps account. Once your 10,000 Steps account is linked with your Fitbit account, you can sync your Fitbit steps by clicking on the sync icon on the right side of the Dashboard.

On the Dashboard you can set your own step goal, view your own step statistics, participate in monthly Challenges and connect with Friends. These features can help you to keep motivated to be physically active once your Tournament has finished.
