Registration Form

ErgZone offers two ways to register athletes for a competition: simple or custom form. 

Simple Form 

ErgZone integrates with Concept2 Logbook allowing our system to receive some basic information about athletes as follows: 

  • Name
  • Date of Brith
  • Gender 
  • Country 

Because of that, depending on the competition categories, ErgZone can place athletes in the correct categories without any input from them. 

When selecting which age category an athlete belongs to, ErgZone will choose the one based on the athlete's age when the first workout is released.
For example:

Jane Doe DOB: February 17, 1982
Competition age categories: 18 & under, 19-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50+

Competition start date:  February 15, 2022 
Jane Doe will be placed in the age category 30-39 as she will be 39 years old when the competition starts

Scenario 2
Competition start date:  February 20, 2022 
Jane Doe will be placed in the age category 40-49 as she is 40 years old when the competition starts

Custom Form

ErgZone can present a custom form with extra fields if the competition requires information not provided in Concept2 Logbook.
