Your team's Meets and Events are managed in the Schedule tab in the Manage Team console.
The events listed here will be by default from your site's "current season", which is set in the Seasons tab. To view meets and events in a different season, click on a season name on the left.
➞ See the Managing Seasons tutorial for more info on your current season.
About Meets and Events
Two types of events can be added here which will display on your website's Upcoming Events snippet and Swim Meets page.
» Swim Meets allow you to define events and set specific meet parameters. Members can sign themselves up to work a job and enter their swimmers in meet events. Some teams refer to signing up for a meet as an RSVP—in SwimTopia, that’s called attendance declaration or meet signup. See: Creating and Managing Swim Meets for more on setting up swim meets. And see Meet Job and Swimmer Sign-up for Parents for more about this from a parent’s perspective.
» Calendar (Social) Events are non-meet events such as banquets or informational meetings that members can sign up to attend and/or work.
Note: For swim clinics or other paid events which require a limited capacity, you can add these as Merchandise items with limited slots and offer them for sale on your Online Store or during Registration.

Jobs & Shifts for Calendar Events
