How do I create a new season?

Last Updated: Feb 20, 2013 12:22PM EST
From the League Configuration menu, select Seasons.

If you’d like to view the configuration of an existing season, select the season from the drop down menu and then click View.  If you need to create a new season, click the New Season button. This includes playoff seasons.

To create a new season, first enter the season name. This is displayed publically on the stats, standings and roster pages. If you have multiple languages enabled for your account, you will see a textbox for each language.

The season short name is an abbreviated season name used on some of the schedule pages, as well as in the daily report and media kits. If you have multiple languages enabled for your account, you will see a textbox for each language.

Enter the start date for this season. This should be one date prior to the start of the season to allow for player transactions to be properly processed.

The end date for the season should be one day after the date of the last scheduled game. In playoff seasons or cases when the end date of the season is not known, an estimate is acceptable. This date can be corrected at any time.

Next, we configure season scoring options. Please note that configuration options vary by database.
  • Career – this setting displays season stats on player profile pages. Exhibition seasons and all star game seasons typically are not career stats.
  • The playoff option enables grids or playoff brackets as well as post season standings and playoff versions of the media kits.
  • Use Shootouts/Remove Ties - this option removes tie game statistics and enables shootout statistics
  • Track Shot Type – this option enables shot type tracking. This option is only available if “Track Shot Quality (Location)” is enabled. 
  • Auto Calculate Goalie Saves – this option calculates goalie saves automatically. This option is only available if “Track Shot Quality (Location)” is enabled.
  • Track Shots – this option enables individual player shot tracking.
  • Track Shot Quality (Location) – this option adds shot tracking by location to the Tools tab in the scorekeeper area.
  • Track Face-offs (including Location) – this option adds face-off tracking to the Tools tab in the scorekeeper area.
  • Track Face-offs (not including Location) – this option enables face-off tracking on the lineups tab in the scorekeeper area.
  • Track Hits – this option adds hits tracking to the Tools tab in the scorekeeper area.

If your league has roster maximum and/or roster minimum rules, these can be entered into the appropriate textboxes. If a scorekeeper attempts to add more players than the roster maximum, a warning message will be displayed.

If this is a playoff season, enter the number of rounds into the Playoff Rounds textbox. This setting applies the appropriate playoff bracket templates.

Lastly enter the number of points awarded for a regulation win, an overtime win, an overtime loss and a tie into the point formula.
Then click Save Season and continue to period definition.
 

 
Next we move on to period configuration. To add a period click the Add Periods button and adjust the period length to match your league rules. If the period is considered part of regulation time, make sure that the Regulation checkbox is selected.
During the playoffs, if overtime periods are added until there is a winner, be sure to have enough added to the system; otherwise the scorekeeper will be unable to finish scoring the game.

Once you have configured periods for this season, click Save and continue to Conferences, Divisions and Teams.
 

 
To define the season conference, division and team alignment, start by expanding the Unused Conferences folder. If the conference has already been added to the system, it will appear in this folder. If you are adding a new conference, click Add new conference… 

Enter a Conference Name, this name will appear above the divisions on the public standings pages. If you have multiple languages enabled for your account, you will see a textbox for each language.

If teams will qualify for playoffs at the conference level, enter the number of teams that will qualify into the Playoff Cutoff textbox. Please note that LeagueStat also supports playoff cutoffs at the division level.

When you are finished, click Save. This will add the new conference to the Unused Conferences folder.
 

 
Next, expand the Unused Divisions folder. If the division has already been added to the system, it will appear in this folder. If you are adding a new division, click Add new division.
Enter a Division Name, this name will appear above the team listing on the public standings pages. . If you have multiple languages enabled for your account, you will see a textbox for each language.
The Division Short Name is an abbreviated version of the division name and appears in the daily report and media kits. If you have multiple languages enabled for your account, you will see a textbox for each language.
If teams will qualify for playoffs at the division level, enter the playoff cutoff into the text box.
When you are finished, click Save. This will add the new division to the Unused Divisions folder.
 
Next expand the Unused Teams folder. If the team has already been added to the system, it will appear in this folder. If you are adding a new team, click Add new team.

The Default logo is the team logo that should be used throughout LeagueStat. The season logo is used for special occasions (like anniversary logos or milestones) or when a team changes cities or names.

Enter the full Team Name. This team name is used in the stats and standings pages as well as in the daily report and media kits. If you have multiple languages enabled for your account, you will see a textbox for each language.

Enter the Team City, this is used on the schedule pages. If you have multiple languages enabled for your account, you will see a textbox for each language.

Enter the Team Nickname, this is used in the media kits. If you have multiple languages enabled for your account, you will see a textbox for each language.

Enter the Team Code, this 3 to 4 letter abbreviation is used in the league consoles and scoreboards. If you have multiple languages enabled for your account, you will see a textbox for each language.

When you are finished, click Save. This will add the new team to the Unused Teams folder.



Once all of the Conferences, Divisions and Teams are setup, drag the items to the top of the window and place the appropriate divisions and teams within each. Please note, if you have a small league and you do not have a conference or division alignment you will still need to create a conference and division to add teams.

Once teams have been added to the season, you can import rosters from their previous season by clicking the team name. An edit dialog box appears, at the bottom of this box, an import button will appear allowing you to transfer the existing active roster to the new season.
