What is the difference between a game and an event?

The Schedule tab classifies all schedule items as either games or events. It is important to create the correct entry because once created, an entry type cannot be changed or edited. Any changes needed would basically consist of deleting and recreating the required schedule item.  

Games

A game is a scheduled entry where your team competes against an opponent and there is a scored result. Some of the distinctive fields available for a game entry are:

  • Opponent
  • Home or Away
  • Uniform
  • Extra Label
  • Enter Results

Events

An event can be anything on your team’s schedule that is not a game and does not need results entered to be tallied to your team record including practices, team meetings, and parties. Some distinctive fields available for an event entry are:

  • Daily Repeating Events
  • Weekly Repeating Events
  • Short Label field

To distinguish between a game or event, administrators view the edit screen for the schedule item The edit screen will be labeled Edit Game or Edit Event accordingly.
