TEAM MANAGER makes it easy to customize various preferences and settings for an Age Group team. Here are few suggestions for setting up and maintaining an Age Group swim team.
|1.||In System Preferences, specify Default Team Registration based on whether your swim organization uses one of the Registration types provided by TM - otherwise, select OTH. Specify the Default Team Type as AGE, MAS, or REC. Also set up a Meet and System Age-up-date.|
|2.||In Report Preferences, specify Open Events as Open or Senior so that TM will display Open 100 Free or Senior 100 Free.|
|3.||Be sure to set up a Favorite Filter with your Team Abbreviation and Course of Yards.|
|4.||When you Add your Team, TM will use the System Preferences from 1. above.|
|5.||When you Add Athletes, be sure to specify the swimmer's birth date. TM will calculate the swimmer's age based on the birth date you entered and the System Age-up-date you set up in System Preferences.|
|6.||At any time during your season, you can request that TM "Age Up" your swimmers. Click Here for more information on how to do that.|
On all reports sorted by Name, TM will display the swimmers School Year and his/her Age. On reports sorted by Event with an Age/YR column, TM will display the swimmer's age.
NOTE: Please note that you can enter a swimmer on up to three teams. For example, you may want to set up a separate team for your YMCA or Age Group team, one for your High School team, and one for your Summer League team. A swimmer could then be on one, two, or all three of these teams. Then you can filter reports "by Team" to get Rosters, Top Times, Entries, etc for the swimmers on any one specific team.
