Faq

I’m new to town and don’t really know anyone. 

Can I still participate in IGNITE Cup?

YES! We’d love to have you! IGNITE Cup teams are a mix of people – some are friends, some co-workers, and some are future-friends (aka, strangers). If you’re new to town (or even if you’re not!) and want to get to know the city and make friends in the process, IGNITE Cup is for you.

We will put you on a great team with an engaged captain who will make sure it’s a great experience for you. No awkward “I don’t know anyone” moments here!

I can’t make all of the events. 

Can I still participate?

YES! Actually, it’s better if you can’t make them all! Each event has a minimum and maximum number of players for each team. So, not everyone will be able to participate in every single event. That takes the pressure off of you and lets you do what’s best fits in your schedule and area of interest. Work it out with your team captain.

So what sort of things qualify for bonus points?

Pretty much anything. Take a picture of you and a teammate (or multiple teammates) out and about in Rockford. You could be going for a run through Rock Cut, shopping at Culture Shock, doing yoga downtown – whatever! Just make sure you’re participating in something with another team member, snap a picture, throw it on Facebook, tag your team (#YourTeamName) and you’re good to go! We’ll do the rest on the backend.
