Define Event Groups

This screen allows you to define a group of events that are able to be registered for on a particular day. If you swim the same strokes every week then you only need one event group set up.

If you have cycle of events where different strokes are swum each week then set up and event group for each of the different weeks and on the date list screen add the appropriate event, for that week, to each date.

Another scenario could be you have a number of fixed events every week and a few variable events running throughout the season. In this case set up one event group for all the fixed events and a separate event group for each variable event (probably just one event per event group). On the screen where you define the dates you swim, you can add the fixed event group to every date and then add the appropriate variable event(s) for each date.
