SESSION: CREWS and Pre-Assigning MinimaXs
Adding Crews, Assigning Equipment and MinimaX
It is important to ensure you have the correct crew (athlete) in the session in the right boat.
Having the correct crew will also tag an athlete in being in that boat which is important if we want to analyse at the end of the year or training block how much time was spent in a particular boat
If an athlete is not in the session then the Garmin will not automatically upload to the session as it cannot find the correct person. In addition, if they are in a team boat it is important you put them in the correct boat to be able to overlay their individual data as part of a crew
When a minimaX is imported it can only attach to a crew so if you don't have a crew then you cannot assign and mark-up a minimaX
Crews can be added after creating the session
Alternatively, crews can be added in when going to session overview
It should be pretty self explanatory
PK1 - Is for Para Kayak boats
K1X - this is for extreme slalom boats
If an athlete is selected in the initial attendance when creating the session, it will automatically populate the session with a K1 crew for that athlete if you added a preferred boat.
If you are wanting crew boats, then delete the K1's and then either using favourites if you have established a favourite crew then select that one or go to create a crew.
Creating a Crew
Select the team boat you are wanting.
Crew Name: To keep it consistent use the following to create a crew name
Boat - Surname Surname Surname Surname
e.g.MK4 - Bond Smith Jones Snow
If you have two athletes with the same surname then add in an intial J.Bond and S.Bond
Names go in the seating order then fill out the other details senior/U23/ etc and then men or women
Adding an Athlete to a Crew
Once a boat and crew name has been entered the athletes need to be added to that crew.
Only athletes who have been added to that session will pop up when creating a crew
Click on add athlete seat 1 and a dropdown menu appears for athletes who have been selected for attendance in that session
Select the athlete who is in seat 1 then repeat for all other seats
Creating a Favourite's Crew
If this crew is going to be used across the course of a number of sessions or going to be a fixed crew for a while then you can click on the star at the top right and that will create the crew as a favourite.
In future, you can just click on favourite crew using the star button on the left hand side of the page and this crew will pop up and you can automatically select the crew
Adding Equipment To the Crew
Once the crew has been created you have the option to assign equipment
You can add it immediately or go back into the option later on
Click on assign equipment
Then click the equipment you would like to add to the crew (minimaX/Phone)
If you add the equipment prior to the start of the session then the minimaX will automatically upload when you download it in maxload as long as the programmed start and finish time of the session overlaps with the start time of the minimaX
Manually Uploading MinimaX if no equipment assigned at the start of the session
Upload the minimaX using max load as per usual
Go to the session and then into crew and as per above assign the equipment to the crew
In the session you are wanting to add the minimaX to, click on imports on the left hand side of the screen then click on import data on the top of the screen
In import data, click on the crew at the top pop-up box
Then click on LZMA and from there you can pick the MinimaX and locate the minimaX unit
Select the minimax then click import
