POINTS - Challenge, Spirit, Participation

The goal of Corporate Challenge is to encourage employee PARTICIPATION, increase company SPIRIT and, of course, provide a little healthy competition! In order to achieve all of this, your team will be rewarded in 3 Point categories:  CHALLENGE, SPIRIT and PARTICIPATION.  

Here is a breakdown of how our points and rankings work.  Check each individual event page for complete details.  

Challenge Icon
​ Challenge

 All events with this symbol will earn your team CHALLENGE points.

This is the one with the corporate bragging rights! Earn the most overall CHALLENGE points at the end of the Games and your company reigns supreme as Division Champion!  Your team earns CHALLENGE points by placing in the top 6 of your division in any event labelled as a Challenge event.  You also can receive CHALLENGE points in both the SPIRIT and PARTICIPATION categories (see below).

All CHALLENGE events will also award medals to participants placing in the gold, silver and bronze positions by request after the Games are over.

Spirit Icon

All events with this symbol will earn your team SPIRIT points.

All SPIRIT points are added together and the team with the most SPIRIT points at the end of the games will earn overall CHALLENGE points.  Plus, everyone who earns a minimum of 500 SPIRIT points will earn 10 CHALLENGE points.
  • 1st Place in Spirit earns 20 CHALLENGE points
  • 2nd Place in Spirit earns 18 CHALLENGE points
  • 3rd Place in Spirit earns 16 CHALLENGE points

Participants Icon
All events with this symbol will earn your team PARTICPATION points.

All events your team signs up for and participates in will earn your company PARTICIPATION points. These participation points are added directly into your CHALLENGE total - so the more of these you gather the better the chances of winning your division! Check each event page to find out how many PARTICIPATION points you will earn.

Medals will be awarded only when requested. Teams winning 1st, 2nd or 3rd in any of our CHALLENGE events are entitled to a Gold, Silver or Bronze medal. In order for the company to receive those medals, the Company Coordinator must fill out the form provided and the company will be contacted when the medals are ready.

We are doing this to reduce waste and to make sure everyone who wants a medal receives one! 



All competition participants must:
  • play for only one company
  • be 18 years of age or older

For most events, participants should:
  • be employed by the company at the time of the Games (full-time, part-time, contract) anywhere in Canada!
NOTE: You do NOT have to be employed by the company to participate in most Spirit, Fundraising, Community, or Special Event Activities.  
  • Retired employees
  • Parental and maternity leave employees
  • professional (i.e. paid) athletes
  • college or university-level athletes (playing in the previous school year – i.e. 2019/2020 athletes)

Athletes who meet the above criteria cannot compete in their designated sport but are free to take part in any other event within Corporate Challenge.

If a player is judged to be ineligible while in “play” he/she will be immediately ejected from the event and the team will be disqualified from play in that sport for the rest of the 2021 Games.
At each in-person event, your participating employees must present the event Roster along with an HR Letter.  Every person listed on the Roster must appear on the HR Letter.

At each virtual event,  participating employees must identify themselves as from their company by changing their Discord name to include their company name.
In an effort to make the registration for live events easier for your athletes, every team must provide a Human Resource letter signed by your Human Resources Director/Senior Manager – ALPHABETIZED BY LAST NAME. This will accompany the roster for that event.
