Here you have the ability to set limits on who are allowed to register and when registration opens and closes.
- If you would like your meet to be an invite only meet, you can enter a password of your choice in the "Password Required to Register" text field. This will prevent anyone who does not have the password from registering for the meet.
- You also have the ability to allow or restrict the addition of "B" and/or "C" teams. B and C teams are Intended to allow larger schools the ability to bring more athletes to the meet than otherwise would be able to compete. These teams will be registered under the same team name but charged entry fees as if a separate team. 
- By default, the registration open date is set to three months before the meet start date. The close date defaults to three days prior to the meet start date.
- Lastly, you can designate what level programs are permitted to attend as well as what types of teams (Schools/Clubs) and if individual/unattached athletes can register.
-If your meet has a restriction on how many events an athlete can compete in, you can now set a maximum number of events per athlete.
Impact on Registration

If a coach attempts to register an athlete for more than the max events allowed, they will receive a prompt stating "This athlete cannot be added to any more event in this meet. They are currently registered in x# of event(s). To add, they must be unregistered from 1 other event(s) first."
