FAQ My Active Teams


Log in > Member Portal > My Active Teams > Availability.  Team players enter their availability for each match and use the Save button at the bottom of the screen to save their entries.  Team Leaders may enter for any team member and for themselves.  The system does not allow availability entry for past matches after the scorecard has been entered.

  • Once the scorecard has been entered, the lineup screen for that match is no longer editable.
  • If last-minute lineup changes are not entered into the lineup screen, that's completely fine.  Please make those changes wisely knowing the ALTA rules.  
  • The lineup checker does not have to be used, but as usual, scorecards must be entered.
  • Leader Preferences in My Active Teams needs to be completed for each team each season in order to assign food on the Lineup screen. 
  • Leaders have the choice to assign food by line or from a list.
  • If by line is selected, based on the league, the number of players/lines are shown for each to have a set assignment.  
  • If from a list, each assignment should be in list form to then select from the drop down on the lineup screen.  

For example: 




Paper goods

Dessert and bananas
