After logging in, click on “Edit My Site”.

Under “Edit My Site” – “Content” – “Stats” - Some sports will have the option of entering either a basic or advanced stat sheet. If advanced is an option – it will allow you to enter more detailed statistics, and will compute percentages and averages for you that will appear on your stats page. Advanced stats are primarily for varsity, college and professional level athletes. We encourage our younger users to use the basic stats.
A Blog is a commonly used term for a web log. It is a place for you to post updates and bulletins that will appear on the homepage of your website. This is a great place to recap recent games, mention an award received or simply to share what is on your mind with the world!
Each page of your website has a headline at the top, and space for an introduction right below that. This is your chance to write a little bit about the content that people will find on that page. For example on your articles page, you may want to use the introduction to talk about the wide variety of publications that have features you in articles.
