You can add a new athlete to the Roster Athletics database from either (i) the start lists of the meeting, or (ii) the OVERVIEW Athletes in the left-hand side menu.

1. To add a new athlete from the start list, click on the Add athletes button and then click on the Create new button.

To add a new athlete from the OVERVIEW Athletes in the left-hand side menu, click on the Create new athlete button. 

2. In both situations, you will see a Create new athlete window. 

To add a new athlete you will need to add the First name, Last name, and select the applicable Gender and Country (all these fields are mandatory). You can also add a Middle name, a Birthday (you can change the date format in the user's settings) or if you only know the birth year, add only the year.

Remember if selecting the United States as a country, you will see a new Grade field which can be used if applicable.

3. You can also add a club or a school, or mark an athlete as unattached if they are not a member of a club/school. 

To assign an athlete to a club/school, click on the Add club/school button and find your club/school in the Select club/school window.

You can add as many clubs/schools as you need. To do this, click on the Add club/school button once again and select the club/school.

For more information on how to add a new club or school, see the Add club/school guide.

If an athlete is not a member of any club or school, select the Unattached option.

4. After adding all of the data, click on the Save button.

5. If you have added a new athlete correctly, you will see a window with a menu that contains: Personal, Licence, Photos (if added), and Records links. The Permissions button will also appear at the bottom of the page.

Under Licence, you can add a new licence number. Currently, only licence numbers for Athletics Northern Ireland, England & Wales Athletics, Scottish Athletics and World Athletics can be added.

Under Records, you can see the personal and season records of the athlete. If you are a creator of an athlete or you have permission to edit the athlete, you can add records manually by pressing the Add records button. 

In the new Add new PB & SB window, select the right season, event, and implement (if relevant). Type in the record with the proper format and save. Your records will be marked as added by the Organiser (Source column and start lists).

In the lower-left corner, you can switch between metric and imperial (feet-inches) units.

Under Photos, you can see the athlete's photos (adding athlete's photos is only permissible by registrants and Roster Athletics staff). 

By clicking on the Permissions button, you can add users who will have permission to read, edit or delete data for this athlete. For more information on how to add permissions to a new user, see the Permission to edit athlete guide.
