To find out how to add teams to the tournament and create divisions, see Add Teams and Create Divisions. To add, edit, or remove teams from a division go to Divisions from your user home page. The interface for working with teams in a division differs slightly for elimination tournaments. Each method is described below.

Add Teams to Division

   Round Robin - Click on Add Teams to Division in the links bar.
   Elimination - Click on Add, Edit, or Delete Teams in the links bar.

By default only the teams with the same playing characteristics (age group, gender, level of play) will be displayed in the selection list. Check the checkbox if you wish to select from all of the teams in the league. You can select multiple teams by holding down the Ctrl key (or Apple key on a Mac) as you click. Teams previously added to the division will not be displayed.

Edit or Remove Team

   Round Robin - Go to the division schedule page.
   Elimination - Click on Add, Edit, or Delete Teams from the division schedule page.

Place Teams into flights

   Round Robin only - Go to division schedule page. Next to each team in the Teams list is a drop down box to select a flight color. After placing each team into a flight, click Save Flighting Info. As with league scheduling, teams play only other teams within their flight during the preliminary round.
