The Sport Setup tab is used to set up information which is typically the same for all users of the program within the same sport. You should be able to go through all of the subtabs of the Sports Setup tab once when you first set up your database, after which you should almost never have to make any changes.
The Sport Setup tab includes the following subtabs:
The Competitions tab allows you to set up the basic sports events for your sport. For example, Track and Field users might set up competitions such as 100 Meter Run and Shot Put.
The Levels tab allows you to define the different levels of competition in your sport. Usually this means different age groups.
The Genders tab allows you to define the Gender terms used in your sport.
The Progressions tab allows you to define the different kinds of Progressions used in your sport. A Progression defines how competitors advance from one round to the next, such as from Heat to Semifinal to Final.
The Scoring tab allows you to define the scoring systems to use for your meets.
The Stages tab allows you to specify the names of the different stages in a progression, such as Heat and Final.
The Exceptions tab allows you to specify the different kinds of exceptions in your sport, which are the reasons why a competitor might be disqualified for an event.
