Hi Deb,

It's because the profile is associated with Organization contact records, not Individual contact records. Individuals sign up for events, not organizations (even if they sign up on behalf of an organization), so CiviCRM doesn't recognize the profile as being valid for an individual registering for an event.

Also, the Team Name or Business (if any) field in the profile is the CiviCRM built-in Organization Name field...I'm thinking that you were hoping that this would find or create a new organization contact record if they enter the name? Unfortunately, this is not a functionality supported by CiviCRM. An anonymous user won't be able to either find an existing contact nor create one.

In order to have users enter a Team Name, create a custom data set that is associated with Individuals, then create the Team Name field that is an Alphanumeric/Text field. The data will be housed with the individual that is completing the registration.

Cheers!
Vanessa
