Polar Plunge Roles

Here are the registration type, team categories and participant roles  that are available to you.  



You are prepared to go "all the way" and hit the water running.  You can dip your dip your big toe or your whole body; it's completely up to you! 

Towel Holder

Cold water not your thing? Can "bear-ly" tolerate the thought of getting one little toostie wet?  Register as a towel holder and cheer your teammates on from the sidelines.  



If you are the type of person who likes to do things on your own, you will want to register as an individual.  We think you will have a lot more fun if you grab a friend or two and start a team, but it is completely up to you. 

Join a Team

Safety in numbers - right?  Select this role if you want to join your family, friends and co-workers who have already started a team.  If you click on this role, you will be able to search the current teams registered so you can join your team.  

Start a Team

If you are a take charge kind of person, you will definitely want to start your own team.  You'll be asked to create a team name and then have the option of inviting family, friends and co-workers to join you.
