Step 2: Adding Athletes
You can’t teach if you don’t have any athletes. You can either add each athlete manually or you can import an athlete list.
Adding Athletes Manually:
- Navigate to “Athletes” from the main menu on the left.
- Click on the green “+ Add Athlete” button.
- Enter your athlete details (athlete first and last name are required).
- Assign the athlete to an instructor.
- Choose whether this new athlete belongs to a “New Family” or an “Existing Family“.
- Enter in your family contact details (parent first and last name are required).
- Click the green “Finish” button.
Importing Athlete List:
For the best results, we recommend that you filter your spreadsheet to one specific instructor. Import this instructor's athlete roster and repeat for other instructors as necessary.
- Navigate to the "Athletes" from the main menu.
- Click the purple "Tools" button.
- Select "Import Athletes" from the drop down menu.
- Select a "Instructor" from the drop-down menu. (Filter your athlete list spreadsheet to the selected instructor.)
- Copy & paste your athlete contact list from your favorite spreadsheet application, such as Microsoft Excel or Numbers, into the space provided.
- Click “Next” and follow the prompts. AthletaDesk will automatically map all relevant fields. Map any additional data as required.
- Click “Finish“.
Tip: In most cases, an instructor's athletes will generally have the same lesson price. So, AthletaDesk will assign this default billing rate to their assigned athletes. You can always modify the athlete's rate from the Athletes menu. Click the blue "Zoom" button to the left of the athlete's name and navigate to the "Instructors" tab. To edit an instructor's default settings, navigate to the Instructors & Admins menu. Click the blue "Edit" button to the left of the instructor's name. Click the "Default Settings" tab. The default settings will only be used when a new athlete is assigned to the instructor. If you wish to change a athlete's lesson price, use the instructions above.
