**NOTE ABOUT MEN’S AND WOMEN’S ACCOUNTS: You control only one gender at time, so you will complete the below steps for your Men, and then switch to your Women’s team and repeat the process (or vice versa). The team you are controlling is listed on the blue navigation bar across the top of your account, for example:
Sport: Track & Field Team: Guilford (M)
This indicates that you are controlling the Guilford MEN’S team (M=MEN). To switch to your Women’s team, you would select “Guilford (W)”.
STEP 2–SETTING UP YOUR ONLINE ROSTER

5) You may add, edit or delete athletes on your Team Roster at anytime by clicking the TEAM tab. To add athletes, click the green “Add Athletes” link at any time. To delete or edit athletes, check the box to the left of each athlete(s) and then click the red “Delete Selected” link or the blue “Edit Selected” link respectively.
All athletes from previous seasons will appear on your roster. It is your responsibility to take the following steps to make sure that you have an accurate, up-to-date roster:
STEP 3–SUBMITTING ONLINE MEET ENTRIES
Once your athletes are added to your roster, you must submit your entries.
