Ateamo allows you to run your team how you see fit. You may have players which come out to practice and make a few games a season but you also have die hards which get to each game 30 minutes early. Ateamo provides flexibility with your roster by seperating players on your team from those that are registered with a league, tournament or other association.
We have published an update which gives captains more control over the players on their team and thus league rosters.
Adding Players to Your Team
Previously, when you wanted to add a player to your team you would send an email invitation to the new player through Ateamo. Once the player responded, joined the team and completed their profile they would show up on your team’s page and will then receive all team communication. While this is the ideal scenario, we have now updated this process so that the player (whether they have an existing Ateamo account or not) will be immediately added to your team as a Pending player. Pending players will show up on your team’s page, league rosters (if they are registered) and event RSVP’s. However, these players will not receive any communication or be able to participate in any team communication until they accept the invitation. Once they do your team will be added to their account like any other team.
Why the update? Our goal is to make Ateamo the easiest way to manage a team, get out and play and moreover avoid paywork, delays and procedural errors. We can now do this by adding the player to your team as soon as you do. This will cut down on registration time as Captains can now add a player and register them without having to wait on the player to do something.
To add a player, go to your teams page, scroll down to the ‘Active Players’ widget and click the ‘+ Add Players’ button (You can also get to this from the team manager).
Once the Add Players window loads, enter as much information about the player and/or players as you have. The only required fields are First Name and Last Name. We encourage you to enter the players email. We can then send them an invitation or connect you to an exhisting player with the same email. If you need to add more that then space allows, click the ‘Add More’ link to add a new row of fields.
Please note that adding a player is not the same as registering. The player must be on your team in order to be registered. You can have players on your team that are not registered with a league or association.
Registering Players with a League, Tournament or Association
Once your team has completed it’s registration and a player registration is required, you will see a link to Register Players on your teams page.
This will link you to a list of the active and pending players for your team. You can review the list to check the registration status, payment status, etc. If you have a player who’s checkbox is not checked this means that the player is not active. Click the checkbox then scroll down and click on the ‘Register Players’ button. Select the appropriate fee and your done.
You can come back to this same page at any time to check the status of your players registration or register more players.
