Age Group, Division, Gender and Axis are foundational to the composition of Teams and Leagues and provide a consistent way in which they are classified and created.
An overview of each of the configuration options are:
|Age Group||Defines the age group of a team or league. These are custom configured to your specific requirements.|
|Division||Defines the division of a team or league. These are custom configured to your specific requirements.|
|Gender||Gender options are pre-set in Dribl and cannot be changed. The default options are Female, Male and Mixed.|
|Axis||Axis provides a way of further classifying grouping for a team and league. It is mostly used to classify a team or league that will be regionalised or even classified by level of ability.|
During the initial planning phase, Age Groups, Divisions and Axis are pre-determined by you in preparation for the creation of teams and leagues that will make up part of a competition.
Dribl has a powerful rules-based engine that allows granular rules to be set against Age Group, Division, Gender and Axis to automate and simplify administrative tasks. This is particularly the case with borrowing and scheduling requirements and it is important that you consider these requirements prior to creation to ensure that the defined structures provide the level of granularity required.
Leagues are composed based on a combination of Age Group, Division, Gender and optionally, Axis.
Age Group, Division and Gender
This configuration is the best option if all the Leagues within the Competition are simply defined by an Age Group, Division and Gender combination and there are no requirements relating to different regions, zones or any other level group requirement.
Age Group, Division, Gender and Axis composition
This configuration is the best option if all the Leagues within the Competition need to be defined with in different regions, zones or any other level group requirement. Age Group, Division and Gender are still used in the composition of defining the League.
