Creating Team Groups


Tip: ‘Team Groups’ is the Age Group of a set of teams, in MyFootballClub this was called ‘Age Group’. Eg. If you have 3x U8s teams, your group would probably be U8

 

  1. In the Admin system go to Teams > Team Groups
  2. At this point you may want to amend the Groups that have already been created for you or create another Group. This guide will follow creation of a new group
  3. Select ‘Add Team Group’
  4. Add the name of your group eg. U8
  5. Tick Status to make the group Active
  6. Enter a numerical number in Sort Order, this is the order you want to see the groups on the summary screen eg. U6 sort order = 1, U7 sort order = 2, U8 sort order = 3 etc etc
  7. Save
  8. Your Group is now created and can be viewed in the Team Management section (Teams > Team Management)
  9. Follow the same process for the adjustment of a current Team Group
