If you want parents and/or coaches to be able select events for athletes in a meet, you must upload what is called an ev3 file to the meet. This typically created by the meet host in Meet Manager and made available on their website. If it's not on their website you will need to contact them to obtain it. If they created the meet using TouchPad then its equivalent is automatically included with the meet.

Once you obtain the file, here are the steps to upload and attach it to the existing meet. (Read Add and create a new Event or Meet if you have yet to do that.)
