Create a Team(s) for non-football athletes and middle school athletes
There are many different ways that a program can set up their teams in order to keep track of your campers. Below is a list of a few suggestions of how you could possibly do it.
- Create a Team for Football Players for your younger grades, 8th, and 7th. You can put them in positions or just add them to your depth chart using any/all.
- Create a Team for Other Sports: Create a non-football athletes Team that you can use to set up your program. On the depth chart, you can make their position by sport. For example, make a column title Basketball, Baseball, Volleyball. Then you make the selected possible players to only those sports.
