I am developing a coding contest project with multiple contests. The participants can be a team or an independent individual, depending on the contest setting. I want to define only one model for the participant which could understood as a team or an individual.
Is there a word that can be used for team and participating individual?
I am thinking to chuck the idea of implementing whole project based on smart team management complicating it whole and decided to implement separate team management and complicating that.
But I would be very happy to change my mind if I could get a word, maybe even in some other language for this.
