Quick Start Guide!
For LeagueAthletics.com to work to its fullest, enter complete information about your members, your leagues/divisions, teams, playing facilities, and game schedules. Here's how to get started:
First, log in to your site as the administrator
Click on the admin icon on your menu bar, or enter your credentials into the floating login box in the banner area.
Create a Season for your Teams (Teams>Seasons)
Find the "Teams" section within the Admin Panel and click "Seasons"
A season defines the dates during which your teams exist. Each season contains a new set of teams. Define a season by entering a name, start date and end date. Click here, to learn more about creating seasons.
Create a League/Division structure (Teams>Divisions & Teams)
Find the "Teams" box and click "Divisions & Teams"
This can be anything from a simple two-league, house/travel structure, to multiple nested leagues. These leagues will become the "parents" for all the teams you define in your website. Click here to learn more about defining leagues.
Create your Teams (Teams>Divisions & Teams)
From the Divisions & Teams page, click "Add a new team"
Enter information about each team such as name, "parent" division, and the season. Each team you create will only be used for the current season. Next season you'll create new teams or copy these teams. Previous seasons' teams will exist as archives so your organization's history (rosters, game results, etc.) can be preserved. Click here to learn more about entering team information.
Create a Registration Program (Members>Registration System)
Find the "Members" box and click "Registration System." To add a registration program click "Add" (or edit the example program).
The registration system will allow you to capture data for your members through your website. Once you have collected this member data, you can begin to assign players to teams. Click here to learn more about the registration system.
Assign Rosters (Teams>Assign Rosters)
Find the "Teams" box and click "Assign Rosters"
Once teams are defined and member data is collected, you can create rosters by assigning members using the Assign Rosters tool. Click here for more information on assigning rosters.
Add playing Facilities (Facilities>Add New Facility)
Find the "Facilities" box and click "Add New Facility"
Here you can enter the names and descriptions of each facility along with its location and driving directions, which will be invaluable to new members. To learn more about entering facilities, click here.
Add Game and Practice Schedules (Scheduling>Add Game or Practice)
Find the "Scheduling" box and click "Add Game or Practice"
Once teams are created and facilities are defined, you can start entering schedules. You can add single events using "Add Game or Practice." You can choose the date, time, teams, and location for each event. Events entered will be added to your organization's Master Schedule and also broken out into schedules for each team automatically. You can also use the "Recurring Games" option to generate events that occur on a regular basis.
At first, the schedules will only be visible to those that have access to this area. This will allow you to make additions, changes, and revisions without notifying your members. Once the schedule is ready, you can set the schedules to "Live" which will cause future changes, revisions, and cancellations to generate email notifications for all afftected team members and their guardians. This will keep everyone (with email) as up to date as possible. To learn more about entering schedules, click here.
