Lineup Limits

The lineup limits grade setting allows association administrators to set a minimum and a maximum number of players and coaches required for a game.  Limits are helpful to ensure teams have the necessary number of players and coaches for a game to proceed. If player points are enabled, player limits ensure both teams have the same number of players and avoid situations where teams stack themselves with more experienced players to get under the player points cap. Coaching limits also help teams comply with competition by-laws.

This article covers:

  • Enabling player and coach lineup limits in the Admin Portal.

  • Selecting a lineup in Electronic Scoring

Team Staff can also select lineups in My Teams.
