Step-by-step guide:

  • Go to the club control panel
  • Click 'Teams' from the left-hand menu
  • Click 'Training' from the sub-menu
  • Select 'Add sessions' in the top-right corner in green

  • Click 'Save and continue'

Once you have created a training group, you can then create sessions within that group.
