How to pick up alternate team members (how to submit your substitution)

The substitution rules for your team will change depending on what category of race you are competing in.

Just For Fun Teams

Just For Fun teams can bring on anyone as long as they have a valid UBC student card. Many people post in the Storm the Wall Facebook Event if they are looking for additional people or if they are looking for a team to race with! Or ask around to your friends and see if you can find anyone to join your team.
Just for Fun teams do not need to provide us with the info of your additional teammate prior to your race. Ensure that they bring their valid UBC Student ID to your check-in and they can sign a waiver there.


Competitive

Please note that substitutions are only valid for your advancement races, not initial heats. If you require a substitution for your initial heat your team will not be eligible to advance. Competitive teams should email storm.the.wall@ubc.ca with the following information:

  • Team name
  • Captain’s first name, last name & student number
  • Substitute’s first name, last name & student number
Campus Wide Teams

You can pick up substitutions for your campus wide team from any other campus wide teams who did not advance. Please note, you cannot pick up players from teams who chose not to advance – only teams who did not advance based on their heat results. If you are looking for players to pick up, many people post in the Storm the Wall Facebook Event if they are looking for additional people or if they are looking for a team to race with! Just make sure to clarify that you’re looking for “people who competed in a Campus Wide heat and did not advance”.

Divisional Teams

You can pick up substitutions for your divisional team from any other teams in your unit who did not advance. Please note, you cannot pick up players from teams who chose not to advance – only teams who did not advance based on their heat results. If you are looking for players to pick up, many people post in the Storm the Wall Facebook Event if they are looking for additional people or if they are looking for a team to race with! Just make sure to clarify that you’re looking for “people who competed in a divisional [UNIT i.e. Arts, Vanier, etc] heat and did not advance”.
