Did you know every team in ABPW has their own team web page within this website?
If you click on the Football & Cheering Teams tab at the top of the site, and then select your team from the drop down list you can get to your team page. This is a great way to communicate with your team, as well as keep track of practice and game schedules and the corresponding game results, standings, and statistics.
Our new web site allows each coach (and/or Team Mom/Dad) to update your own team's personal webpage with bulletins, changes to practice times, game scores, statistics, and write-ups. Here are some quick notes for working with your team site.
In order to access any of features mentioned below, you need to log in with your team password. Contact Tara Powers-Deedy at email@example.com if you do not know your team password. To log in, click on the "Admin" menu option tab located at the top of the web page. A "Restricted Area" dialog will appear. Type your name "Full Name" field, and type your team password in the "Password" field.
"Off Limits" - Admin Forum: With your team password you have access to a few areas in the LeagueAthletics web site, that you should consider "off limits". The Admin Forum is a discussion group on how to set up the LeagueAthletics web site. Feel free to browse through the Admin Forum but please do not post new messages here, as we do not want to overwhelm the folks at LeagueAthletics. If you have a question on how to use the team administration facilities that are available through your team password, please send your questions to Tara Powers-Deedy at
Navigate to Your Team's Page
After logging in with your team password, navigate to your team's web page by clicking on your team menu option tab at the top of the page. Once you're logged in on your team's page, you'll notice an "Edit" icon (a little picture of a table with a pencil on it) and a "Delete" icon (a red X) shows up next to team bulletins. You can use these to edit or delete existing bulletins on your main team page. You'll also these similar icons on other pages of the site for similar Delete and Edit functions.
Adding a Game Write-up
Click on the "Results" link from the left hand menu. You will see a table of games played. To enter a game write-up, click on the "Edit" icon. The write-up is entered in the "Comments" field.
Note that you can enter scores and write-ups at separate times. In other words, you can post the scores immediately upon returning from the game, and then you (or someone else on your team) can post a write-up at a later time.
Adding New Team Bulletins
Click on the "Admin" menu option tab located at the top of the web page. Click on the "Message" menu item from the menu bar located at the left of the web page. Click on the "Team Bulletin for one or more teams" choice. Be sure to:
Make sure your name is filled in the "Author" field
Your e-mail is filled in the "Respond to" field
Fill in the "Expires After" field if you want the message to disappear on a given date.
Fill in the "Title" field
Type your message into the big edit box. Use this edit box like you would any word processor. However, if you know HTML, here's your chance to have some fun; click on the HTML tab at the top of the edit box and edit the message in HTML!
Leave the "Picture File" and "Caption" fields blank
Click on the "Email Broadcast" check box if you want notification of this message to be sent to your team members
Click on the "Submit" button when you are done. This team bulletin shows up on the "Bulletins" left-menu option for your team. If you are logged in with your team password then you will see Edit and Delete icons next to each bulletin allowing you to edit or remove them.
Team alerts allow you to put notes on your team's schedule/calendar, but you don't have to declare an opponent and location - just start/end date/time, and a note title and description.
Click on the "Admin" menu option tab located at the top of the web page.
Click on the "Alerts" menu item from the menu bar located at the left of the web page.
Enter the information, and hit "Submit". It's probably a good idea to leave the "Recurrence" information blank unless you really need this feature.
Alerts show up in your schedule and can then be edited just like any schedule item.
Emailing Your Team
You can email your whole team directly from the web site.
In your Team Page area, click on "Roster" from the left hand menu. On the bottom of the page, you'll find an "Email the whole team" link which will allow you to construct an email that gets sent to the whole team.
If an email address is wrong for one of your players, please email the ABPW web contact at firstname.lastname@example.org
