Changing Age Up settings allows athletes of a younger age group to compete in events of an older age group. During the nomination process, the family will see all age groups for an event that an athlete is eligible for but will only be able to select one age group per event.
Setting an Age Up of one allows athletes to compete up by one age group.
Example: Setting an age up of 1 on a U10 age group event will allow U9 athletes to compete.
- To set or edit the Age Up settings for events within a meet, navigate to the Nomination Setup of your meet (by clicking on the Mail icon alongside your Meet from the Meet Calendar) and click Age Up (the third tab).
- Then, for each event you'd like to set Age Up amounts for, adjust the enter the number in the event's Age Up box accordingly.
- Click 'Save' either from the top or bottom of the Event list.
TIP: You can also use the dropdown at the top right of the screen [pictured above] to set all events to one blanket Age Up amount.
Minimum Attendance Requirements
Changing Attendance settings applies eligibility rules on each event and/or age group that members must meet in order to nominate.
To set or edit the Attendance settings within a meet, navigate to the Nomination Setup of your meet (by clicking on the Mail icon alongside your Meet from the Meet Calendar) and click Attendance (the fifth tab).
The attendance settings allow you to refine how you’d like attendance to be measured and apply to all inputs within the Event and Meet Attendance sections.
You can choose to set attendance requirements for members’ participation from the meet’s Home Centre only, or, if other Centres are invited to the meet, you can choose to have these settings apply to their participating members too.
By checking the boxes for Heat, Semi and/or Final, you can limit attendance requirements to just these types of events.
Note: If all boxes are unchecked, the system will apply the minimum attendance requirements to all heat types.
The Cutoff Date sets the latest date/time for athletes to have acquired attendance that can count towards the minimum requirements.
Note: The cutoff date is based on the event/meet date that results are captured for and not the date when the results were entered (as this could be delayed by Centres). Results will have to be recorded in the system before athletes’ attendance within that meet can be counted towards the minimum requirements.
Be sure to click 'Save Attend Settings' to put your settings into effect.
Note: Attendance is tracked in the system based on athletes’ results being recorded, including outcomes of no throw, disqualification etc. The only status that would not be tracked as ‘attended’ is ‘DNS’.
