How is the system compliant with the Data Protection Act requirements?
Can you restrict individual team coaches to only be able to see and access their own teams info?

The system is fully compliant all data is secured and only visible to those you give access to.  However within a club we currently do not restrict visibility to teams only, if you give access to a coach they will see all the members within the club at the access they are given.

Old Loughts would be very interested in being able to restrict access to member details to particular teams.
The spirit of data protection generally works on a 'need to know' basis within a system. Whilst there may be a need for individual captains, coaches or managers to see details of members in their own squad, they don't have a need to access the details of members in other teams.

Team Bath Buccaneers support this too.  Would be great to have a specific Permission for Team Managers that means they can only access data on their squad members (and also visibility of their squad members Aged Debtor status). Such a category would be hugely helpful.

Yes, I agree. Coaches and Team Managers really only need to be able to see their own team's information. It's hard to justify for data protection purposes why the club has given the Under 7 team manager access to the personal information of all the senior First XV players.

With the new GDPR features launched today, team managers and captains can view their own team members, team information and communicate directly with their own team members.  Please set up your team manager or captain via the team page.  Should you NOT wish for them to see this information please amend their role in the member profile to remove this access
