For many organizations, verification of birthdates for players is an important part of the registration process. This is typically done by verifying that the person (player) matches their birth certificate credentials. Administrators typically track this in the SportsSignup system using “Admin Only” custom questions – set up under the Child records. This works, but has some limitations, including the fact that an Account Owner can edit the birthdate at any time.
New Birthdate Verification Checkbox
We have added a new feature that allows administrators to use a “checkbox” to verify a birthdate. This checkbox can be found by viewing the Child Page (for a specific Child registrant). Once the birthdate is verified, the Account Owner can no longer change/edit the birthdate of the child. As usual, reports can be run against this field to see who has been verified.
How to add Birthdate Verification to your account
SportsSignup needs to provision this feature for your account. If you are interested, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with your request, and we will work with you to enable the feature and convert your existing records as necessary.
