  • Resolved kship19


    Does SportsPress have the ability to set lines for a game? Our ice hockey club is using BenchApp to do this now but it would be great to switch over to SportsPress completely. Hockey has up to 4 forward lines consisting of 3 skaters each and 4 Defense lines consisting of 2 skaters each.

    Hi there!

    Thanks for reaching out and I’m sorry for the delay.

    I’m not sure if I get what you mean. What are “lines” in your sport? Do you have an example?

    Sure. A team in Ice Hockey can only have 6 players on the ice at a time. 5 skaters and 1 goalie. We will ignore the goalie for now. The 5 players (skaters) consist of 3 forwards and 2 defenseman. Each set of forwards is considered a line and each pair of defensemen is considered a line. In a typical game you will have up to 4 forward lines and up to 3 defensive lines. Officially, teams can only dress 20 players for a game which usually consists of 18 skaters and 2 goalies. Typically they create 4 forward lines and 3 defensive lines. So, for each game, a team’s lineup may look like this:

    Forward Line 1
    Right Wing: player 1
    Center: player 2
    Left Wing: player 3

    Forward Line 2
    Right Wing: player 4
    Center: player 5
    Left Wing: player 6

    Forward Line 3
    Right Wing: player 7
    Center: player 8
    Left Wing: player 9

    Forward Line 4
    Right Wing: player 10
    Center: player 11
    Left Wing: player 12

    Defense Line 1
    Right Defense: player 13
    Left Defense: player 14

    Defense Line 2
    Right Defense: player 15
    Left Defense: player 16

    Defense Line 3
    Right Defense: player 17
    Left Defense: player 18

    Hi there!

    Thanks for your reply.

    That’s an interesting setup.

    We could create player lists for these different lines. But we don’t have anything in the event screen to make it easier for you to load them.

    You could use them on your team page as a way to visually separate these lines, in case they are relevant there.
