Access to private areas of the MCDL website is restricted to Team Reps only.
Each team is assigned login credentials. If you are a new Team Rep, hopefully you can obtain them from your predecessor – but if not, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will provide you with a username and password.
Go to https://www.mcdiving.org and click Login on the menu bar. Note that your username and password are case-sensitive.
The website allows you to post an advertisement for a coach. After logging in, select Teams from the menu, and then Add/Edit Coaching Ad. Most of the fields should be self explanatory. Note that the “Live” box must be checked for the ad to be displayed (once your position is filled, please ensure you uncheck the “Live” box to remove the ad from the public view).
Once you have finished entering the information, hit <Save>, and you can view your ad at https://www.mcdiving.org/advertisements
The full meet schedule is available under the Meets option on the menu. On the Meets screen, you can filter by Team, which is useful if you are interesting in seeing just the meets for your team. Historical results are also available from the dropdown at the top.
To register divers, log in and go to Teams, and in the lower half of the menu (under your team code), select Divers. We have an instructional video here.
Prior to the meet, the home team should use the website to prepare ribbon labels. The Mail Merge procedure, which involves downloading the roster for both teams, is not longer required. After logging in, under Meets / Schedules & Results, each meet has a set of available actions using a button on the right hand column. Select Labels. This will automatically generate a set of ribbon labels and allow you to download them. Note that if you have alignment problems with printing, you may want to try opening the downloaded file in Adobe Acrobat Reader (its a free download) rather than in your browser – it is often more precise with page alignment.
Per MCDL rules, divers must be registered on Friday prior to the meet. If not, they will only be able to dive exhibition.
After the meet, return to the same area of the website, and select Enter Scores. Enter the scores for all participating divers, marking divers Exhibition or Dive-Up as required. Note that if you have a dive-up, you will have the option to enter a “Wildcard Score”. This isn’t required, and if you are unfamiliar with it just leave it blank.
At the bottom, press Submit Scores to save your entries.
At this point, you will see the draft results, including the overall meet score. Review the score to ensure it is correct. If you have a tie and you have 19 year-olds diving, remember to review that special rule again! Once you are comfortable that it is all accurate, press Publish – the results are automatically posted on the website and divisional standings are updated. Any further changes can only be made by contacting the league.
Please get your scores in as quickly as possible after a meet.
This release introduces a number of new features, predominantly:
Additionally, the Standings page has been modified to supress display of the Divisional Rank Points until after Divisions as this was causing confusion prior to completion of the dual meets.
Historically, there have only been two types of users: Reps (each associated with a particular pool) and admins (used by the board and system admins). Effective distributed management of the of Divisionals and All Star meets requires two additional roles to be defined:
A user’s capability will depend on their role AND the pool with which their account is associated. Note that capabilities are cumulative – a given user may be a pool rep, meet host and an All Star Divisional Coordinator – they will have the sum of all of those capabilities.
In addition to the above, ‘Admins’ have rights to perform all tasks.
Deadlines are imposed for the Divisional and All Star Meet entries. For Divisionals, after the meet deadline, only the host pool and the Admin users can change entries. For All Stars, only the All Star Coordinator and the Admin users can make modifications.
Assigning a particular user account to a role is under control of the Admins.
