Adding Roster Info
Idea shared by - 10/14/2014 at 10:01 PM
When I try to enter a teams roster why do I have to enter hometown and birthday.Most of the time all the coach wants is the list of players and their number so fans can see the roster and who is on the team. At least make it so if you want to have these included that is fine but if you don't that is fine also.

Hello Greg,
The birthdate is important so that when rostering players the site can filter by birth year.
The hometown field is there for historical reasons - the first association to ever use the site was a zone AAA centre so they wanted to recognize the home centre for their players.  For associations who don't have players coming in from other areas it should be easy to just add a hometown column if doing an import, and if adding players manually there is an option to set a "default hometown" in System Administration -> Season Defaults -> (select season) -> Registration; and by setting the default you won't need to type it in.  The display of the hometown on the roster page is optional.
Hope that helps,
