You must understand that in creating a custom athlete eligibility requirement, you are acting as a programmer. Our system is designed to let you create a specific set of circumstances in which the data you attach to any athlete can be processed and checked against a set of custom rules that you select in order to either pass or fail an athlete's ability to access certain events, much like the process you use each time you enter your username/password in order to access this software. Cool, huh? As a new programmer, you will need to know that there are many variables that will need to be assigned in order to tell the system 'exactly' how to proceed given any possible circumstance. This wizard will guide you through the process of parsing your requirement to our system in a way that will remove any conflicts and allow your data restrictions to be checked and applied to your athlete data, yielding your desired result. This set of articles will walk you through the implementation of a fictitious 'Participation Fee' requirement while also attempting to explain any variables that might arise in the process of creating various other eligibility requirements.


The process, described in a simplified manner, is essentially:


1. Identify basic information about the rule, including which data source to use for comparison.


2. Identify what circumstance will violate the rule, and describe how to check the circumstance against existing data.


3. Identify other special requirements of the rule.Interface Breakdown
