Program Sessions – Introduction

What is a Session?

Session represents a time period for a sport in a club in which athletes do real practice at a designated facility.  Session Start Date and Session End Date represents the start and end of the Sport Session

Why do I have to add sessions? These were not in the old data base?

Session is a new feature introduced in new database. Its benefits are multi folds.

Session will create history of a club. We can see:

  • How many session this clubs has been offered so far.
  • Participation of members
  • Members who moved forward in next session
  • Expired members
  • Will provided exact date of any suspended/terminated member

How many Program Sessions a club can have?

A “Community Club” or “School Club” can be associated to one or multiple Program Sessions. These sessions represent the different levels or schedules (if applicable) for programs offered at the club.  Each Program Session needs to be associated to a single Program (sport).

Example of multiple sessions for Active start Program (starting at different dates/time/age/Facility)

Who can create Program Sessions?

Head Coach, Team Managers and community Data Admins/Community Coordinators can create a session. After  Approved by SOO staff they will be able to add enrollments.

When a session will be available on the Portal for registration for data Admins and general public?

When Session Start Date will pass, session will be available for registration (if you have a session with future dates, you have to wait till that date)

When a session will be expired?

After passing the Session End Date, session will be expired along with its all enrollments and will not be available for registration to data admins and general public

Can Data/Club Admin create New Session for Next Sport Season before the expiration of old session?

Yes, they can.

Steps to create new session:

  • Create New Session for sport before old session get expired
  • Fill out all necessary information (session Start Date and End Dates must be future dates)
  • Select Session Status – Active (Will be available for online self enrollment, registered members & Data Admins)
  • Get it approved by SOO Staff (DBA, District Developers, Membership Staff)
  • Let SOO staff know that it has to be hidden for Self Enrollment while asking for session approval
  • Enroll Head Coach/Team Manager
  • Approve their enrollments with enrollment Start Date as of Today

Note: Sessions duplicated by DBA will have Hide From Self Enrollment feature ON.

What Hide from Self Enrollments means?

New session will not be available to

  • New Members to submit online applications
  • Registered Members to enroll themselves in this session

When community decides to open for online registration

  • Ask SOO Staff to make it available for Self Enrollment

Note: Currently Hide from Self Enrollment feature is available to staff only. It will be available to Data Admins on Portal.

As a Data Admin/Head Coach it is overwhelming for me to create sessions for my clubs. Does SOO will provide any help in this regard?

Yes, DBA has a tool called Session Duplication Tool, will be able to duplicate expired session for communities and make it available to them with Status New, with all its Expired members with Active Status. Then communities have to update session fields where necessary like Status, Session Schedule and have to Cancel/Delete member enrollments who are not returning in this session.

Note: SOO will duplicate club sessions for the clubs having large number of enrollments on community request which must be approved by their District Developer.
