Before you can activate your meet and open it for registrations, you'll need to select what events will take place during your meet. If you selected a Meet Template during step 2, you will find that the list of events is already populated with the events from the template meet.

If you don't have any events listed, click Add Event.

You can search for an event by name, or click on a discipline to filter results. Click on the event you'd like to add from the list.

Free Accounts have access to our 45 most popular events.  Team Site Supporters have access to the full list of 220 events.

Once an event has been created several buttons will appear to the far right.

Advanced Options allow advanced configuration of events. See Advanced Options Overview for further information.

Click Add Event to add another event.

Click Expand All to show the all the events broken down by gender and division. Alternatively, clicking on the event title (100 Meters in this example) will expand or collapse only that event. This will also display options for sorting the events by gender or division.

Use  to move the events up or down, or change the order of the division within an event. This is useful if there is an exception to the schedule, such as when boys' events run before girls' events, except for a particular event. Otherwise there are options to sort the events by gender or division in the Expand All or Advanced Options menus.

When adding field events or hurdles, the Event Category menu changes. Make sure you select the correct implement weight or hurdle height.

When finished, click Mark Complete at the bottom of the screen to move on to Activating the Meet, which is the final step before participants may register.
