PREPARING YOUR GOTSPORT TEAM ACCOUNT FOR INITIAL ROSTER GENERATION

UPDATE/UPLOAD PLAYER PHOTOS:

Every player on your team must have a CURRENT passport style photo uploaded into their individual player accounts in GotSport. Before the rosters are generated, every player's photo should be checked to verify the following:

  • Does the player have a photo?
  • Is the player's photo current?
  • Is the player's photo appropriate? (photo should be a passport style ID photo)
  • Is the player's photo in focus?

YOUR TEAM'S INITIAL ROSTER AND VIRTUAL PLAYER CARDS WILL NOT BE GENERATED (CREATED) UNTIL ALL PLAYERS ON YOUR TEAM HAVE A CORRECTLY CROPPED AND APPROPRIATE PHOTO !!

It is ideal if the team manager takes and updates their team's player photos every year. Photos can easily be taken at a pre-season practice with a smartphone. Most smartphones also have editing features that allow cropping/editing of the photo(s) if necessary.
 

UPDATE PLAYER JERSEY #'S:

Some competitions require the player's correct jersey number be printed beside the player on the team's Official Roster.  To have the correct jersey numbers generate/print on your Official Roster, jersey numbers must be correct in the current seasonal year GotSport WDDOA Team/Player Registration Event (official roster).
