Go to Divisions from your User Home Page. Be sure the correct season and competition are selected, and scroll down to the "Add a Division" form. Enter the Division name (e.g., "U-14B" or "U10 to U14"), and select the Play Characteristics.
If the competition that the division is in has been set to have standings then you can choose whether to keep the standings public (See Add a Competition).
If your league uses Double Forfeits for unreported games, there will be an option to disable them for the division. See Disable Automatic Double Forfeits for more information on this option.
A division can either have a single Age Group or a range of Age Groups. If it has a range of Age Groups, with a maximum and minimum Age Group, it is expected that there will be teams in the division with any Age Group between those two.
To specify that a division has a range of Age Groups, click on . You will be offered both Minimum and Maximum Age Groups. Whenever you select a new Maximum, the Minimum select list will be populated only with lower Age Groups.
If your league has affiliated leagues with teams playing in your divisions, you may want to specify which league assigns referees and/or other officials for games in this division. If the league of the home team has that responsibility, select "Hosting League". If they are always assigned by your league, select "Scheduling League". If they are not assigned at all, select "No Referee Assigned" (or "No Other Official Assigned").
If your league doesn't have affiliated leagues at all, you just need to specify whether or not referees and/or other officials are assigned for games in the division.
If your league uses Division Match Secretaries or Results Secretaries, they can be assigned on this form. Note that the League Administrator first needs to add people to these roles before they can be assigned to specific divisions. If you are not sure who is to be assigned yet, you can always edit the division later to make the assignments.
Information entered in Instructions to Teams will be displayed on the division schedule page below the schedule. This is a very useful place for information about the format and rules for the age group, reporting game results, where to mail in game cards, etc. Html tags can be used for formatting purposes (bold, italics, line breaks, etc.) See A Brief Primer on HTML.
After entering all information click .
To edit an existing division click next to that division in the divisions list. You can change information previously entered or delete the division altogether.
