See below for an overview and links to How To articles to assist with each of the MySideline Admin Competition Management features.

  • There are helpful "Show Me How" walk-throughs found in MySideline Admin which can take you through various processes step-by-step.  Also keep an eye out for the (?) icons for added helpful hints!
  • If you are new to MySideline Admin Competition Management, we recommend you start at the NRL Learning Centre where you can complete some simple courses such as The Complete Guide to Competitions, or smaller components such as Creating/Editing Competitions and Draws.


Squad Management

This option is available from Club level or higher, and can be utilised via both MySideline Admin and MySideline Manager.

Use Squad Management to assign Players and Team Staff (Non-Players) to their Squad (i.e. Team).  Once assigned and saved, Members will be available for selection in Team Lists.


HELP! If a Member isn't available for selection in a Squad, check the following common fixes:

  • Age Level (Player) - If Player is a different Age to the default, change the Age Level drop-down and search again
  • Pending Registration - If a Member is still pending approval, they cannot be added to a Squad.  Follow up registration approval and the Member should then appear for Squad allocation.
  • Member Type - (Non-Player / Team Staff) - Team Staff must be registered in the Member Type related to the Role they are being assigned as (see Roles below).  Check if they are registered in the correct Member Type/s for their Role/s.  If a Member is performing more than 1 Role, they will need to register in each relevant Member Type:
    • Coach - Coach, Assistant Coach
    • Volunteer - Manager
    • Trainer - LeagueSafe, League First Aid, Level 1 Trainer, Level 2 Trainer, Chief (CMO), Assistant (AMO)
