Riders do not need to complete any additional steps to change teams if they have not yet registered for the the upcoming IEA competition season.
Rule 2304 describes the procedures and stipulations regarding a rider requesting to change teams during the competition season:
An Individual may switch teams by filing a Change of Team Form and new membership form with the IEA Membership Secretary. Once a team change request has been filed and processed then the following stipulations apply:
- A rider will be eligible to compete for the new team once their forms have been fully processed and deemed eligible as an addition on the new team's roster. Standard membership timelines (15 business days) will apply.
- A rider may be used as a point rider for the new team if they have not yet competed during that competition year. If a rider has competed that season, they are not eligible to be designated as a point rider for the new team during that competition season.
- Riders will carry any individual points earned and the number of shows in which they competed to the new team.
The Team Change Request Form and Rider Application are available on the Membership page of the IEA website.
