Your team's Meets and Events are managed in the Schedule tab in the Manage Team console.
The events listed here will be by default from your site's "current season", which is set in the Seasons tab. To view meets and events in a different season, click on a season name on the left.
➞ See the Managing Seasons tutorial for more info on your current season.
About Meets and Events
Two types of events can be added here which will display on your website's Upcoming Events snippet and Swim Meets page.
» Swim Meets allow you to define events and set specific meet parameters. Members can sign themselves up to work a job and enter their swimmers in meet events. Some teams refer to signing up for a meet as an RSVP—in SwimTopia, that’s called attendance declaration or meet signup. See: Creating and Managing Swim Meets for more on setting up swim meets. And see Meet Job and Swimmer Sign-up for Parents for more about this from a parent’s perspective.
» Calendar (Social) Events are non-meet events such as banquets or informational meetings that members can sign up to attend and/or work.
Note: For swim clinics or other paid events which require a limited capacity, you can add these as Merchandise items with limited slots and offer them for sale on your Online Store or during Registration.
Creating Calendar (Social) Events
Click the Add Calendar Event button for a new meeting or social event.
Enter your event details. You can type in the date and time if you don’t want to pick the date from a calendar or the time from a list (you can type in a time not ending in :00 or :30)
The Do not display check box makes the event visible on the Manage Team > Schedule page but not on the team schedule. Uncheck this option when you are ready for it to appear on your Meets & Events schedule, and to allow parents to sign up for Jobs or RSVP.
Click Save to add this event to the schedule.
Sign-up Status for Calendar Events
The status tab will show the current status of the RSVP and Job signup settings for non-meet events. RSVP status behaves in the following manner below.
✓ Allow RSVP and view it (parent account login required)
× Disable view and RSVP (event appears on the schedule, but parents cannot RSVP)
✓ Allow view RSVP (parent account login required)
× Disable RSVP
For automation setting a time and date then checking the Automatically Open or Automatically Close box will make the RSVP open or close once the date has passed.
RSVP Settings for Calendar Events
Click on the event name in your Schedule to edit RSVP and payment settings for this event.

Click Save to save your changes to this event, for example to waive a fee for older swimmers.

Jobs & Shifts for Calendar Events
Calendar Events (i.e., non swim meets) can only have jobs scheduled by time of day because non swim meets don’t have events).
