You need a teammate, and by signing up, you will be participating in every event.

It’s like signing up for team USA for the Olympics, except you are the athlete in every event.

Just to be clear, if we want to sign up for one event we have to sign up for all of them? Hmmm… if that’s the case, I don’t think I can do it, but otherwise, please sign me up for the freestyle acrobatic (SOLO). Thanks

You must be on a team, signing up together, for all 17 events.
