Category: Bio Sheets


Bio Sheets can be used for a multitude of things. For example, you could use these first and foremost for player profiles to be accessed from the Roster pages of your site. Or you could use them as health and safety forms that could be printed and provided to each coach in your organization.

Creating a bio sheet
Bio sheets are created from registration data. You can begin building one by going to Admin > Members > Registration System > Bios.

A few notes about how they work...
Bio sheets pull in information from your online registration program. That is, each Bio Sheet is unique to the Registration Program you highlight before clicking Bios on the previous page.

Bio sheets are templates. You can format the template and arrange information any way you would like. The format we provide as a default is not required.

Using the Insert Data option, allows you to inster a "data element" into your template. When this is inserted, and the Bio Sheets are generated, this information is filled in dynamically with the information the individual entered for this question during the online registration process.
