When you create or edit teams, you only specify the designation. The division prefix is automatically assigned, and the coach names are also automatic when coaches are assigned to the teams (below). The cosmetic team name may vary from season to season.
Assigning Coaches and Staff to Teams ('team-level' assignments)
Location: Teams menu, 'Add or Edit Teams'
- Head Coach (or Co-Coach; these are functionally identical)
- Assistant Coach
- Team Administrator
These assignments are called team-level (as opposed to division- or league- level) and they persist only for the duration of the season in which they are assigned, such that the Head Coach of B8-01 for Fall 2016 will not have access to Fall 2015 or Fall 2017 rosters or contact information unless the coach is assigned for those seasons as well.
League administrators may configure additional options related to team-level assignments in their control panel:
- Referees may be designated as a team-level assignment for leagues that track "team referees." Such assignments do not convey any special access but team referees will appear on some rosters.
- Additional, custom volunteer roles (called 'flex' roles) within each league may be designated as "assignable" to teams.. Assigning volunteers in these roles is a record-keeping function only and does not convey system access to the team.
- Head coaches may be permitted to assign assistant coaches and flex volunteer roles. If this option is enabled, the menu icon under Teams available to head coaches will read Team Volunteer Assignments instead of Coach Assignments.
