    • TBD - Check this box to show the event as To Be Determined on the schedule.
  • Start - Enter the start time of the event using the form "hh:mm." If the time is in the morning, this is all that's needed. If it's in the afternoon, you need to add a "p" to the end or use 24-hour time instead. Note: This field will default to the start time that was last entered on this form.
  • Finish - Enter the time the event is over using the same form as above, that is, "hh:mm." Again, If the time is in the morning, this is all that's needed. If it's in the afternoon, you need to add a "p" to the end or use 24- hour time instead.
  • Location - Select the location of the event from the drop-down list. These facilities are popluated by the website administrator. If the facility is not listed, send a request to the website administrator to have the facility added.
  • Category - Select the category of the event. The standard categories built into the site are "Tryout," "Practice," "Game," and "Scrimmage".
    • Confirmed - Check this box to confirm the event.
    • Cancelled - Check this box to cancel the event, but still have it remain on the schedules.
    • ID - This is an optional field where clubs may provide their own unique event ID.
  • Season - Select the appropriate season from the drop-down list. This will populate the "Team" and  "Opponent" drop-downs with only teams from the selected season.
  • Team - Select the name of the home team for the event from the drop-down list of association teams that have already been defined. See the Teams chapter for information about adding teams. If this is an inter-organizational event, such - as a house game or practice, you can select the away team from the Home Opponent list below. Please do not re-enter this event for opponents from your own organization. The web site will break out individual team schedules for - you based on the master schedule. If you enter a home team and a home opponent on this form and submit it, the event will appear on the schedules of both teams. Also note that you should NOT select league names from the list. These are designated with an asterisk at the beginning of their names. They are here only to distinguish the various teams defined for your organization.
  • Opponent - If this is an inter-league (or association) event, such as a "house" game or practice, select an opponent team from the list of association teams. As noted above under Team, you should not re-enter this event as a separate event for - this team. The web site will break out individual team schedules for you based on the master schedule. If you enter a home team and a home opponent on this form and submit it, the event will appear on the schedules of both teams.
    • Or Winner/Loser of Game # - Optionally enter the game ID of a preceding game in an elimination series bracket. The ID must be the internal database ID like the one displayed at the top of this form (if an existing game). You can also get a game's ID by moving - your mouse over a game's edit icon on any schedule. Your browser's status bar will display the link which contains the ID number. If you are creating a single elimination tournament, select winner from the drop down window. If you are creating a double elimination bracket you have the option of selecting the winner or loser of a previous game.
  • Outside (Opponent) - Select the name of an outside (non-association) opponent from the list of previously entered opponents. If the opponent is not in the list, you can use the Other field to the right of this one to enter new outside (or travel) opponents.
    • Other (Opponent) - Use this field to enter new outside (travel) opponents. Names you enter here will appear in the "Travel" list in subsequent forms. Be careful when adding new opponents here. If possible, use as generic a name as possible for each. For instance, it's probably best to use the name of the opponent's club or town alone, rather than a specific team. This way, you can reuse the opponent name for various league or division games with different teams within your organization. Otherwise, you'll end up with a large amount of opponents that are very hard to understand and navigate. For instance, it's probably enough to know that your "Squirt" team is playing "Lancaster." You don't need to specify "Lancaster - Squirts." This way, "Lancaster" can be used to designate other teams as well, such as "Lancaster" PeeWees, etc. In this situation, you'll only have one "Lancaster" opponent name in your opponent list that is used for several association teams.
  • Note - Use this field to enter event notes for the event. You're limited to 32 characters, but you should try to keep the notes as brief as possible as they will cause schedules to expand in width by the length of whatever text you type here. If you add too much data, team schedules may end up being wider than can be printed on standard paper.
  • Officials (optional) - Once you have entered members as officials, this section will appear with a list of all officials in your database. You can select the checkbox to the left of their name (for officials with multiple positions assigned, you can select their position from a drop down window) and the official will be assigned to the game. Note: Officials will automatically be emailed a reminder of their assignment, at minimum, 24 hours prior to their assignment.
  • Send Notices To - When checked, this will send automatic event notices to those affected by changes made on the event information form. If you would not like to send notcies, uncheck all of these boxes.

Scheduling Recurring Practices

The Recurring Event tool makes it possible to easily add a series of events that occur on a recurring basis.  If your teams have regular practices or games, this can save you lots of time setting up your schedule.  A word of caution: You'll need to be careful when using this tool.  If you make a mistake and generate a bunch of faulty events, you'll have to delete them one by one.  There is no mass delete or undo tool available on the site.

Example: To generate recurring practices, where a team practices twice a week, use the Recurring form tool twice.  On the first form, enter a "1" in the first field ("Every") and select "Week(s)" from the drop down.  Next enter the date range and times. The date range should start on the first date of the recurring practice and end on the last date of the recurring practice. Next, select the playing field from the Location drop-down.  Submit the form to generate the events for the first practice day of the week.  Next, invoke the Recurring Event form again.  Again enter a 1-week frequency and fill in the information for the second practice.  When you submit the form, you'll generate the remainder of the recurring events.


To use the Recurring Event tool:

  1. First, make sure you are signed in as manager/admin.
  2. Click "Administer" located at the top right corner of the screen.
  3. From the "Scheduling" section, click the "Recurring Games" link.  This will bring up the Recurring Event form where you'll need to fill in the following information:
  • Every
    The two fields at the top of the form allow you to specify how often the events occur.  The first field is where you type the frequency as a number.  The second lets you select the units of the frequency.  If, for instance, your practice occurs every week at a certain field, you would type a "1" in the first field and then select "Week(s)" from the drop-down list.
     
  • Date Range
    Use these two fields to specify when to start and stop generating events.  The first field specifies the date to start generating events and the second specifies when to stop.  Enter dates using the form "mm/dd/yyyy" or "mm-dd-yyyy."
     
  • Time
    Enter the start and finish times for the event using the form "hh:mm."  If the time is in the morning, this is all that's needed.  If it's in the afternoon, you need to add a "p" to the end or use 24-hour time instead.
     
  • Team
    Select the name of the team that will have the regularly scheduled practice or game from the drop-down list.  Note: Please don't select league names from the list.  These are designated with an asterisk at the beginning of their names.  They are here only to distinguish the various teams defined for your organization and should not be selected as a team.
     
  • Opponent
    Leave the field with the default "NA" choice to generate events with blank opponents. 
     
  • Location
    Select the location of the event from the drop-down list.  See the Facilities chapter for information about adding facilities.
     
  • Category
    Select the type (or category) of the event from the drop-down list of event categories.
     
  • Notes
    Use this field to enter any notes about the event up to 32 characters.

Once you complete the form and press the Submit button, the events within the date range will be created.  You can view and edit them using the same method as you would for individual events.
