Athlete Age Groups are are used to group athletes by age range and gender.
Using Athlete Age Groups, you can:
- Customize the age ranges and genders for each age group
- Send group emails using the age group name as a mailing list
Note: Instead of Athlete Age Groups, high/middle school teams will see a menu option for School Year Athlete Groups.
Very few teams need to modify the built-in age groups. Individual meet’s event settings supercede these settings as well, so even if you have only 8 & Under age groups set up here, if you meet’s events are set up with 6 & Under and 7-8 age groups, that’s what will appear for that meet.
To create an age group that is "X & unders," select "0" as the low end of the age range. To create an age group that is "Y & overs," select "& Over" at the high end of the age range
You may set registration limits by age group while setting up registration forms. The registration form is initialized with the team’s age groups as a default, and the administrator can customize age range limits that are specific to that registration form.
Sending Email to Athlete Age Groups
From Communications you can click on “Compose Message” and start typing the name of the gender or age group you want to email and you’ll be offered a drop down list with matching selections (e.g. start typing “Bo” and you’ll receive all the boy’s age group options. Note: 15 + age groups are typically labeled “Men” or "Women").
