CAPTAIN’S GUIDE: How to setup your team donation page on Crowdrise

Each player on your roster is required to register for your team through our registration portal. Team members will not have to pay a registration fee to add themselves to a team rosters but must accept all terms and releases.

PLEASE NOTE: You are NOT required to join the Active Club Membership ($69.95) during your registration, but if you are already a member you will save $6.88 on the Active fee charged for registration. If you don’t want to be charged for the membership, just click “No Thanks” when given the option to purchase during registration.

How to Get started:

  • Register Your Team

    Your team captain should register your team first and create your Crowdrise Donation Page.
    You do not need to know all the players on your team at time of registration. Players can be added to your roster later.

    Team Captains, register yourself then create your team. There is a $100 registration fee and Active.com fee that you will need to pay to complete your team’s registration.

  • Individual Team Members

    Each player will be asked to register individually and sign waivers through the registration process for them to participate. While registering themselves, they will be able to select the team to join, if the team has been created already by the team captain.

  • Your Donation Page

    Each team will have a Crowdrise.com Donation page. Captains be sure to set up your Crowdrise page as soon as possible (click here for how to do that). The more time you have to raise money the better chance you have of getting that #1 draft spot.

  • Share Your Page

    Share your Crowdrise page with Colleagues, friends, and family. If each player on your team is able to get $25 donations from 10 people you will reach your $1000 donation pledge in no time! Also, talk to your employers about matching donation programs.

Note

If your team does not reach their minimum $1000 donation pledge, your team will be asked to make up the difference before being eligible to draft an All-Star player.
