LeagueApps automatically creates rosters when Players and Coaches register onto a team or into a group. One simplified process makes it easy to collect all roster information during registration so you can display headshots, contact information, jersey numbers, positions and more on your digital web roster.

Players and coaches must be registered to a Team or Group in order to be on a roster.
- To create or view a program's teams/groups, click Teams or Groups on the program navigation bar (what you see depends on the program type).
- Participants can register to teams directly, or they can be moved onto a team after registration.
- The term "Team" can be customized (i.e. Tryout Group or Pod) by going to the Settings option within the program, and clicking on Preferences. For this article, we will refer to them as Teams for clarity.
You can control who can see rosters within the member portal and publicly on your website, by going to the Settings option within the program, and clicking on Preferences.
- Team Details Visibility: Keep rosters private. Use this setting to prevent Players & Staff from navigating to their Team Roster. Checking it ON will hide the Team Page link from your members dashboards. In the Member Portal and in the App. You can uncheck this setting at any time to enable visibility to your Coaches, Players, and Parents. Note: This hides the roster from ALL Team Members, including Program Staff (coaches).
- Team Roster Visibility: Who can see your Rosters? This setting defines who can view the players on a roster from a Team's page on your website.
- Everyone: accessible by anyone, including those not logged into your site.
- Logged in users: accessible by anyone with a LeagueApps Login for your site.
- Team Members: accessible only by those on the same team, including Program Staff.
Customize your Rosters
With Teams set up and visibilities determined, it's time to customize the web and print rosters. Navigate to the Roster Settings page by hovering over the Teams navigation menu item, and selecting Roster Settings.

There are four different sections to customize:

Roster Deadline and Status
Setting a roster deadline in a league or tournament is a great way to make sure your Program Staff (Coach, Program Director) are submitting their team rosters by the time that you need them. Follow the steps below to activate a roster deadline in your program(s). In this article you'll also see how you can filter/message based on team's Roster Status and what the roster deadline looks like to Program Staff.
Turn on Program Staff Settings
- First, turn on your Site-Wide Program Staff Settings by hovering over the Settings icon, and selecting Staff Roles.
- Click the pencil icon next to the Staff Member(s) that will be allowed to submit rosters and check on "Members with this role are allowed to submit roster"
- Then turn on the Program Staff option under 'Allowed Registration Types' in the Registration Options section of any program(s).
Turn on Roster Deadline Within Your Program(s)
- Roster deadline settings are in the program's Registration Options page.
- To get to a program's Registration Options, navigate to the desired program dashboard, hover over Settings and click on Registration Options. Note: If using sub-programs, registration options live at the sub-program level.
- Once on the Registration Options page, scroll down to the Roster Submission Settings.
From here you can set up the following:
- Enable Roster Submission: This setting allows the Program Staff to officially submit their team's roster to the program
- Roster Submission Deadline: This is the date that all submitted rosters are due. Note: This setting is optional.
- Lock Roster Upon Submission: This ensures that after Program Staff submits their roster, it's locked and can not be edited or changed. Note: If you turn this setting off at any time, Program Staff can then edit and resubmit their roster.
- Allow roster submission for complete teams only: If this setting is on, Program Staff can only submit a roster if their team is considered Complete by the program's registration rules (found under Registration Options).
- Send Admin Notification Emails Upon Roster Submission: When this setting is on, the selected admin level and above will receive a notification email each time a roster is submitted.
Note: If you want all of your programs to have a Roster Deadline then you can save the Roster Submission settings in your site's default registration settings.
How to Filter and Message by Roster Submission Status
Admins have the ability to send a bulk reminder email to any Program Staff who hasn't submitted a roster.
- From the 'Teams' tab in a program, each team has a status of either Roster Submitted or Roster NOT Submitted. Filter by Rosters NOT Submitted.
- Once you've filtered by Rosters NOT Submitted, select the check box next to each team that you want to send an email reminder to. You can also select the check box to the left of the "Bulk Action" tool to select all teams from your filtered results.
- When you have your teams selected, click on "Bulk Action" then click "Message Teams".
- After clicking "Message Teams" you'll be prompted to select which Program Staff you want to send to, along with adding a custom Subject Line and Message to the email notification.
Program Staff/Coach View of Roster Submission and Deadline
Your program staff will see a 'Submit Roster' button and the roster deadline date from their team's roster page:
After submitting the roster your Program Staff will see the date that their roster was submitted.
Note: If you have the setting to lock rosters after submitting OFF, then your Program Staff will continue to see the Add/Invite buttons on their roster even after they've submitted.
FAQs & Tips
By tagging a form field as a Jersey Number or Position, its placement will be optimized on the digital roster (shown in it's own column on the roster). This is configured at the program level by hovering over Settings and clicking on Form Fields. You will see a tag dropdown option on each form field where you can assign the appropriate tag.
