When a club is a single sport club ie Hockey, whenever a new member is added could you automatically include that Sport against each User? The reason being of the c200 members in our database around 75% of people have not added 'Hockey' as their sport therefore when you come to assign members to Teams they appear as supplemental members. In addition could you update all of our existing members with the Sport of Hockey?

That would be a real help. There must be a lot of single sport clubs out there!

Justin, we are considering this option again (it appears to have slipped through the net)

We would really appreciate this too - otherwise, we have to manually assign each new person to cricket.

We'd really appreciate this feature as well!! I'm adding all our players (over 250) to the Club Buzz database at present and setting their sport for each member individually when we only play football is a real pain.

It is but unfortunately other tasks have taken priority, we will get to this our proposal would be to allow clubs to say this is the only sport and then say whether they want to auto allocate all members to that sport (as some clubs use the system for parents/officials etc who are not allocated to a sport)

But we wouldn't want to have a sport linked to a player who is de-registered, for example.  Or for a parent or an official perhaps either, which is your point.

The priority for me would be to have a report for all members, to show their registration status, and their membership type, and also their sport.  At least this way we will be able to track it.
