Do you have a group of friends, family, dive buddies, or colleagues who want to participate in the Fish Out of Water 5K together? Then form a "Fish Shoal". Create a fun name for your group and designate a Shoal Captain to submit the information using the button below.

Form a Fish Shoal

Each member of your Shoal still needs to register for the race here. 

When registering, there is a place on the Race Registration form to list your Shoal Name. Also as part of registration, participants will each select their desired Fish Team (in 2022, there are five options - Nassau Grouper, Lionfish, Whale Shark, Manta Ray, and Ocean Sunfish). Members of a given Fish Shoal do not need to select the same Fish Team.

So you may be wondering... why are we calling your group a Fish Shoal and not a Fish School? The answer is because each member of your group will select their own Fish Team and they don't have to pick the same species. A simple group of fish is called a "shoal." It can contain a number of species. Shoaling makes it easier for fish to find food because more individuals are on the lookout. Large numbers also help fish find mates. In addition, being in a group offers some protection against predators, similar to hiding in a crowd. A group of the same species of fish that swim together and move in a synchronized manner is referred to as a "school."

There is no additional cost to form a Shoal. It's just a fun way to build camaraderie among your racemates. We encourage Shoals to get creative with costumes, themes, prompts, etc.

*Reminder - creating a Fish Shoal does not include registration for the Fish Our of Water 5K. Each participant still needs to register for the race here. Creating a Fish Shoal just provides an opportunity for extra fun and promotion.
