Age Divisions are primarily designed for Youth Athletics teams because of their birth date range structure. High Schools and Colleges normally set-up each event as Open and should NOT use Age Divisions. Note: Click Here for more information on setting up Event Divisions such as JV & Varsity for High School ( See Groups/Subgroups/Codes).
The division eligibility formulas allow you to define the division in a way that will universally apply to all meets. The age range and the low and high date calculation method are used to figure out which athletes fit in the division. This formula then would apply to all meets and would depend on the date of the meet.
These are the default Age Division codes:
SB Sub-Bantam 0-8 Day 1 of Meet Year of Meet
BN Bantam 9-10 Year of Meet Year of Meet
MI Midget 11-12 Year of Meet Year of Meet
YH Youth 13-14 Year of Meet Year of Meet
IN Interim 15-16 Year of Meet Year of Meet
YG Young 17-18 Year of Meet Last Day of Meet
MAS Masters 19-99 Day 1 of Meet Day 1 of Meet
Merge Division Codes
As discussed above, TFTM allows you to "name" a Division for Youth Division Events. TFTM automatically sets up standard Division Codes for each of the Youth Divisions - for example, BN for Bantam, MI for Midget, and YH for Youth. However when you import meet results from MEET MANAGER, Division names will be imported as "numbers". For example, if you are importing meet results from a Youth Division type meet, Midget events may be imported as a Division code of "1" and Bantam events may be imported with a Division code of "2". If you wish to name those Division code "numbers", click on Set-up then Divisions and then highlight, for example, the code "1" and click on Edit and then change it to "MI" and click OK. TFTM will ask you if you wish to merge that Code with the one that exists - click Yes. Now do the same for the code of "2" and edit it to match the one that exists for "BN".
