Add a Relay
|Top Previous Next|
There are three ways to enter relays into your database:
To add relays, click on Relays from the Main Menu Bar or on Relays at the top of the Athletes Menu. In the Relays Menu at the upper left, select the relay event desired. You can 1) click the Add icon and select a team or 2) double click the team name at the lower right. MM will ask you what Relay "letter" you wish to assign to that Relay. The first Relay Team for an event will be the "A" Relay, the 2nd the "B" Relay and so on. You can later edit the relay letter by clicking on the Letter column in the Relay Team Entry grid and make the change.
If the event is set-up as a Multi-Age Group event, you will also be asked to enter the Relay Age which can be any number in the range of the age group, such as 12 in the 11-12 age group. If the event is a mixed event, you will need to enter the Relay Gender. You can later edit the relay age or the relay gender by clicking on appropriate column in the Relay Team Entry grid.
After the relay is added, it will appear in the upper right window and you can enter a seed time by editing the grid directly.
Click here for how to enter relay names. Relay names can be added at any time, before, during, or after the meet.
At this point, you may add additional Relay Teams to the Meet or you might want to declare what Athletes are actually running for each Relay Team. This declaration does not have to be done now, or even at all. If, or when, you do want to declare what Athletes are running for what Relay teams, highlight the particular Relay Team in the Relay Team Entries Browser on this screen. MM will show you a list of all eligible Athletes for that Relay Team based on the Gender and Age of the event. You may click on the Show Age-ups button to show any Younger Athletes that might qualify for the Relay Team. For example, for a Girls 13-14 4x100 Relay, you might also like to look at younger athletes that you might want to put on one of the Relay Teams for this event.
Once you have added the Relay Team, MM will show that team in the Entry Browser. Highlight the new Relay and key an Entry Time, and/or click on the Scratch, Alternate, or Exhibition check boxes as appropriate.
