Instructions to enter a meet using MileSplit's Online Meet Registration System
CLAIMING YOUR TEAM
Step 1: Go to your home MileSplit - address is state abbreviation.milesplit.com - ex: http://pa.milesplit.com.
If you already have a userID and password from your MileSplit state, skip to Step 3. If you do not, then you must first do Step 2.
Step 2: In the header on the right, it will say "login." You will be able to login or sign up. Do one or the other.
Step 3: Please note you may be on the national portal - www.milesplit.com. There are no teams on the national portal, so if you do not see Teams on the nav bar - you will need to switch to your home state to find your team. Either change the www to your 2 digit state abbreviation, or click on More in the nav bar, then MileSplit Network and click on your state link. Once you are on your individual state page, you will see a nav bar that includes Teams. Click on "Teams" in the toolbar and locate your team.
Step 4: Click on your team name and once on that page, look beneath the team title and then click the button that says "Claim Team."
Step 5: Click either Coach or Team Administrator, but not both. Each has the same access to your team roster and online meet registration.
Step 6: Click on the "submit" button at the bottom of that page. You should add your team position in the text box, and any other information you believe we will need to quickly verify you are a coach. A school email address is also a very good indicator we use.
Step 7: Wait for a confirmation email from MileSplit saying that you are approved to be a Team Coach or Team Admin. Most requests are approved within several hours. If you have not received the email within 12 hours, please check your junk or spam folders for the email.
If you have questions, please feel free to contact, MileSplit Online Registration support, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
IF YOU HAVE ALREADY REGISTERED BUT FORGOTTEN YOUR PASSWORD
Click on Login. On that page is a link if you have forgotten your password. Click and fill out your email address. If you do not quickly receive it, you may have a typo in the email address you originally entered, or it may be going to your spam mail folder. It is a server generated email and many mailservers read that as spam. If you do not get it, email email@example.com.
When you receive it, click on the link and it will allow you to reset your password. Then login.
EDITING YOUR TEAM ROSTER
Step 1: Make sure you are logged in. Go to your team page by clicking the "Teams" link in the tool bar. (If you do not see the teams link, you are not on a state site. Go back to Claim your team step 1 at top of page and read and follow those directions.) Scroll down and click on your school name. Once on your team page, you will see a button directly under the team title and address that says "Edit Team." Click it.
Step 2: On the tabs in the grey bar, click "Roster."
Step 3: Now you will see a screen with both boy and girl athletes associated with your team. Look through the list --- you may find many athletes that should only be on the (Indoor/Outdoor) Track Roster or only on the Cross Country Roster. If the athlete has already graduated and there is a graduation year, they will not appear on the live roster or in online registration. If a grad does not have the year (indicated from the -- beside their name), click the pencil icon and add the grad year to edit athlete.
If you see misspellings, click the pencil icon at the end of the row and make the correction.
If you see duplicate athletes, please copy the names and email to your state webmaster (email at bottom of each page) or firstname.lastname@example.org. We merge them, and by doing this, it ensures that all performances on either profile will not be lost.
If a current athlete does not have a grad year, please add it. (please note, we do not add college grad years). All grad years are HS. Almost every meet using MileSplit requires a grad year.
The Cross Country and Track designate the rosters that the athlete will appear on during online registration. Please take a few moments to edit those, so that you will have fewer names when doing online registration. If an athlete is on both XC and TF rosters, you don't need to change a thing. You can always add an athlete back on a roster by clicking the pencil icon and making the edit.
And if you need to add new athletes, simple Add Athlete to right of page and fill out as much info as you know, but the first name, last name and HS grad year are required for most meets. Birth date is only important if entering an age group meet.
Step 4: You are now ready to enter a meet using the MileSplit Online Registration system.
ENTERING A MEET ONLINE
Step 1: Make sure you are logged in. You should have already claimed your team and edited your roster. If not, you will be able to do so, through links within the registration.
Step 2: Go to your state's page and click in the tool bar on "Calendar." Select the current season, and look for the meet you wish to enter. If the meet is open, you will see a green "Online Entry" pencil. Click the meet. Then on the meet page, click the green "Online Entry" button. (If the button is yellow, the meet is not yet open. If it is red, the meet is closed.)
Step 3: You will see a screen that you will remain on throughout the process. The process is noted in boxes to the left and will let you know where you are in the process.
