Frequently Asked Questions:
Add a reply if you have a question not on this list!

How often are the Olympic events?
Events are held every weekend. We will usually have practices once or twice beforehand.

Would I be able to leave the team at any time?
Of course! Although we dislike seeing our members having to leave, we understand that unexpected circumstances can occur. We prefer if you contact us in advance prior to leaving, however.

Do I have to attend every practice and every Olympic event?
No. We would love if every member could remain active and dedicated in order to attend all Team USA practices and events, but of course, we understand if you must attend any other commitments.

How do I become an administrator of the team?
You don’t become one, you get specially chosen based on many factors. At the moment, we do not need any additional administrators and will only add more, if necessary.

We look forward to competing this year, and let the games begin!

As the leader of Team USA, I’d like to thank @Bobby and @Nathan for being so helpful with making the official recruitment topic for this year’s Olympics. They’ve been very helpful, especially when I don’t have the time to manage certain things.

Last year in Amsterdam, Team USA was noted for being the most professional team in the Opening Ceremony. While the opening was very chaotic and seemingly unorganized, our team managed to not lose our professionalism, and we followed a flight plan, stayed together, and had excellent spacing while landing at EDDL. We aim to maintain that level of professionalism throughout this year’s games.

This year, we also decide to switch things up by using United Airlines as our main airline carrier. United offers a wider variety of aircraft to participate with, compared to American Airlines. I assure you, this is just a change for this year, since United Airlines sponsors Team USA in real life Olympics.

Let’s go Team USA! 🇺🇸 Our goal this year is at least two gold medals. I believe that we can do it, and rise above in this year’s Olympics. 🥇🥇

My best of luck is to other teams such as Team Great Britain, Team Australia, Team Switzerland etc. Can’t wait to see you all in the opening ceremony! Practice hard!
