The new Team Status

Teams now exist under three different status, these are: short
  • Registrants can be allocated to the team with any registration status eg. pending status
  • Clubs can move registrants within the team allocation
Club says 'I'm still working out my team'
  • Only Active registrants can be allocated to a team
  • The team can only be moved to Locked when in the Official status
Club says 'My team allocation is sorted, it's ready to be locked'
  • The team is locked by the Association
  • Only Governing bodies can amend team allocations
Association says 'This team is locked in for the season...unless I want to change it'

NOTE: The functionality to Lock teams is only available to Associations, it is not available to either Member Federations with clubs linked directly to them in the organisational hierarchy OR organisations set up as Affiliates. See Known areas for future development section at the foot of this page

Team status can be denoted via the Team Management page for your club

It is expected process for managing Team allocation for a competition will run per this example:

1PreparationTeams are created for the new season (rolled over/created/adjusted)
2PreparationThe Association (Comp Admin) communicates a deadline for all teams to be ‘Made Official’. Note: this is communicated in training to clubs, not through the system
3AllocationParticipants register
4AllocationPlayers are allocated to a team
5AllocationNon-Players are allocated to a team
6AllocationTeams are now held in a ‘Draft’ status
7Team Locking(in advance of deadline day) Teams need to be made ‘Official’ by the club. This means all registrants now need to be made active
8Team LockingThe Association will then ‘Lock’ the teams, preventing any movement of registrants within the teams by the Club Admin. Associations can amend teams as normal
9Auto RemovalAny de-registrations of members in the team will automatically remove the member from the team
