After logging into your account First time users will need to create a roster, entering their athletes. This may be done by clicking [Roster]. The roster menu is where you can add, delete, and modify the status of your athletes. The roster menu is one of the many improvements over the previous entry method. The roster is the list of athletes that correspond to divisions and is where you may draw your entries from.
The Roster menu There are many items that correspond to each athlete. This is the menu for designating athletes as JV, Varsity, or grade level. The many corresponding items are easily edited later by simply clicking the [pencil and paper] icon; edit.
Adding Athletes Before you can enter meets, you must first add athletes to select from. The athlete entry process begins with adding the first then last name of an athlete Then you must specify a gender. The genders you can select from are limited by the team code(s) you associated with your account at registration.
Adding Athletes You are almost done adding the athlete. This helps delimit your roster for special meets/events. For example; for Freshmen events, your selectable roster will include only freshmen athletes.
Adding Athletes To finish the athlete entry process, you will need to designate them as either Varsity or JV. This also helps when entering Division specific events by delimiting your roster to show only Varsity or JV athletes. This will help to prevent any mistakes when entering relays and other events.

Special Notices! If you coach both middle school and high school, you will need to create two different, separate accounts and associate each one to the appropriate level.
