Players and coaches in Spring Select and Fall Elite programs need picture ID cards for their games and tournaments. These ID cards are printed on a standard form and then laminated. The laminating machine and blank ID cards are provided. The ID cards are produced at the beginning of the season after the teams are formed. There is an occasional need to produce another ID card during the season if a player is injured and replaced.
Time to Produce ID Cards: About 1.5 hours per team. Number of teams: 6 boys and 6 girls
Blank picture ID cards come on a pre-printed sheet that looks like the image to the right. Each card has perforated edges and can be punched out. This template is attached to this page in both Microsoft Word and iWork Pages format. Download the required format.
The Team Manager will email images of the players and coaches to you. Collect all the images into one folder for the team. Place the images for each person onto the template, appropriately cropping and scaling the images to fit. Write the player or coaches name in the NAME field of the template corresponding to each image.
Information - Player and Coach
The required personal information can be obtained from the Tournament Roster. Login and go to Board / Tournament Rosters. This will open a page and you can click on the Print Roster button next to the team you are working on. This will produce a PDF that lists the information for the coach and each player. Enter that information into the ID card template.
Printing the ID Cards
Place the template sheet into the printer. In your word processing software, delete the template background, leaving only the personal data and the pictures. Print the page.
Regional Commissioner Signature
After printing all the cards on the sheet you need to get the RC signature on the cards. Take all the cards with each team in a different envelope to the RC and get them signed.
The RC has a laminating machine and you can laminate them as the RC signs each one.
Give each envelope of completed cards to the appropriate Team Manager.
