How do I add an athlete?

Add Athletes

*For best results, make sure you are using Google Chrome or Safari to upload your athletes.

New Coach Platform (V3) 

To add Athletes, you will start on the users tab of the new coach platform and from there you will click add users. Enter in first name, last name, email address, and choose the role to be an Athlete. 

You will need to choose which groups they will be a part of. Athletes can be added to as many teams necessary on this page as well. Make sure that the ‘Send Invite Now’ is checked if you would like them to get the invitation immediately. Finally, click add user and they will now be a part of your athletes on Volt.

You may follow the same steps if you click on the ‘add many users’ tab but will only need to enter in email addresses followed by a comma. You can upload up to 200 emails at a time and will need to assign them to a coaching role as well as a group.

Adding Athletes One By One

Click on the +Add Athletes button. Enter the athlete's first name, last name, and email address they will use to activate their account (or if they already have a Volt account, you can add that email address). Choose a program to add them to (optional), then click on the Add to Roster. You can also click on Add 5 Rows to add as many athletes as you'd like. 

Bulk Import

To add multiple athletes at once, click +Add Athletes, then Upload A File, then click on "download a sample file (.xlsx format)" and you can fill out the template (spreadsheet) with each athlete's first and last name and the email address they will use to activate their Volt account. Save this spreadsheet to your computer. Then, on the Athlete page, click +Add Athletes, then Upload A File, then "Choose File" to upload your recently saved spreadsheet. You will see a preview of your athletes' email addresses—make sure there are no inappropriate characters (+, ", ], >, etc.), then click Add To Rosters in the bottom right corner. You can add them to programs at this time or you will have to go to Programs then Roster to add them to a training program.
