Team Manager II/Meet Manager Software Help and Protocols
The SAL uses the companion computer database programs Team Manager II and Meet Manager (Hy-Tek, Ltd) to manage the huge quantity of results from meets (6 competitors per event X 42 events per meet X 20 meets per weekend X 8 weekends of regular meets = 40,320 results ---- not counting championships and invitational meets!). Team Manager II is used by teams to keep track of swimmers' performance and other team information over the season, and is used by coaches to prepare line-ups for each meet. Meet Manager is used to run the meets: it incorporates times from touch-pad systems (or stopwatches) with the line-ups prepared using Team Manager II into a database that tracks individual performance during the meet and keeps track of the team scores. Results from the meet are then transfered from Meet Manager into each team's Team Manager II database, as well as into a centralized league Team Manager database used to prepare for the league championship meets (the Top 40 lists elsewhere on the this web site are based on this centralized database).
