Creating a House League
To create a league you will need to go to the LEAGUES & COMPETITIONS > SCHOOL LEAGUES in the left hand navigation panel, from there you can select ACTIONS > CREATE LEAGUE this will pull up the league creation form
From here you can now begin to fill in the main details of your league.
Name: This will need to be something unique and that can help you decipher between this event and others similar (it might be worth inputting the academic year here
Description: This will help you input further information to enable staff to know more about this event, this is not information that is shared with parents or students
Aggregation: Here you select the type of tournament, for the purpose of this guide we are doing ‘House’
Domain Name: Please ensure that this is all one word, you are able to separate words with a dash if you would like. This will create your league website – DOMAINNAME.squadintouch.co.uk
Public Site Access: While creating your league you may want to leave it as disabled so there is no access, however when you would like students, parents and staff to see the league tables you can change it to either:
- Protected: only accessible using the password
- Allowed: anyone with the web address can access your website
Now you can start adding your events, if you are unsure how to create a sporting event yet, please see our guide on how to do this – Please ensure when you create an event you set it up as a HOUSE event.
Once you have created your events you are now ready to add them to the League. To do this select your chosen league and then click ACTIONS > ADD EVENTS
when selecting from the events it will only show those events that are eligible to be selected, so in this case House fixtures.
Select your chosen event(s) and then click ACTIONS > ADD TO LEAGUE
You will then find all your events in the EVENTS tab of the league
