Click the setup button. Fill out the top block with descriptive information about your group. If you want the group listed on page in the site the coordinator can arrange that for you (for example USTA teams may want their team pages to be linked under the USTA page in the Tennis section). You can provide a description of your group and a headline to run on the website home page. You can also define a message you want to communicate to the group members when you send email confirmations. Typically you would tell them of what they should do if their plans change. All of this descriptive information is optional.
Press the submit button to update the database before selecting members for the group.
Recording the group's membership is an optional feature that offers the captain several advantages in communicating with members and managing the schedule. If you want members to sign up for the group using the website you don't need to do any more until they actually sign up for the group. If you are going to add members manually select one of the organizations listed in the pull down menu to get a list then check either the captain or member box to the left of the names, then press submit at the bottom of the list to add as many members as you want.
The setup screen will remain available as long as your group is active.
