At the start of a new season, pre-existing junior players will need to be moved or migrated to a new team. As an example, you may wish to move the Under 11 players to the Under 12 team.
This can be done in the Membership Database.
Please do NOT do the following:
- Create any new player accounts.
- Deleting existing player accounts.
- Or change the name of a team*.
*Unless you are adding or losing teams due to numbers.. e.g. U11s is becoming U12 Blue and U12s Red. In this situation, you would rename U12s to U12s Blue and create a new team called U12s Red.
Moving players between teams
Always start with the oldest team first.
Your first step should always be to move players leaving your oldest age group (probably U18s for Football, Senior Colts for Rugby Union). These players should be moved into the senior teams 1st, 2nds, 3rds etc first.
You should then follow the same method below for re-populating your junior teams
Example method for a club with 3 junior teams, U13s, U14s, U15s:
1. Create a new team called U16s. Move U15s players into the new, empty U16s team.
2. Move U14s into the empty U15s team and move the U13s into the empty U14s team.
How to move/migrate players
Go to the club control panel.
Click the Membership tab.
Select Membership Database.
Click the Filters button towards the top of the page and filter for the Players/Coaches/Team Admins of the team you are moving up.
Example - moving U15 to U16. Filter for all U15 Players.
Select all filtered members using the select all tick box towards the left-hand side.
Click the edit Roles button.
First, add the new role (a player within the U16s team):
- Select Add a role from the first drop down.
- Player from the second drop down
- And the new team (U16) from the third drop down. Click OK.
Now, remove the old role (player within the U15s team):
- Select Remove a role from the first drop down.
- Player from the second drop down.
- And the old team (U15) from the third drop down. Click OK.
Finally, click the green Save button.
The players will be moved/migrated from the U15s to the U16.
Repeat the process for all Team admins/Coaches/Other teams.
