Password: [use the password that Sporty support provided you]
- Now tick the check-box beside the Check and Enable button, then click the button.
- After a few seconds KAMAR will confirm your connection to Sporty.

Once your KAMAR connection has been enabled, it may take up to 24 hours before your student details become visible to you in TeamBuilder when you click on the ROLL tab (top left).
You can then drag & drop students from the roll list on the left into teams on the right and this will automatically create their registration records in Sporty for you against the registration form/database associated with those teams. Note that the student details available from KAMAR are First name, Last name, Email, Date of Birth, Gender, Phone number, Primary Ethnicity, Secondary Ethnicity, Parent 1 First Name/Last Name/Email/Phone/Address, Parent 2 First Name/Last Name/Email/Phone/Address, Next of kin FirstName/LastName/Phone.
If your registration form requires additional fields, the system will present a registration form to allow you to complete those details for each record.
