Clubs

Think of clubs like a "master team". A club holds the master assets and naming for all teams that sit underneath a club.

A club is an optional entity and teams can exist without being attached to a club. However, if you have multiple teams with the same name, it is recommended they are grouped underneath a club.

Teams

A team is a required entity and can exist on its own or underneath a club.

As mentioned above, if you have multiple teams with the same name, they should be grouped underneath a club.

When to use clubs?

If you have multiple teams with the same name. For example:

  • Sydney Sharks - Adults - First Grade - Male

  • Sydney Sharks - Adults - First Grade - Female

  • Sydney Sharks - U16 - A Grade - Female

  • Sydney Sharks - U16 - B Grade - Male

You would group all of these teams under a club called: Sydney Sharks. How the hierarchy would look:

  • Club: Sydney Sharks

    • Team: Adults - First Grade - Male

    • Team: Adults - First Grade - Female

    • Team: U16 - A Grade - Female

    • Team: U16 - B Grade - Male

When to use a team on its own?

When you don't have multiple versions of the same team. You only have a single team you need to add to LIGR.

You can also add a team to a club at a later date, in the case you find you are adding multiple divisions of the same team over time.
