How do I import athletes from an Excel file?

How to use the import function and template in the Hawkin Cloud

You can add athletes individually in the Hawkin mobile app and the Hawkin Cloud - but did you know that you can import and entire roster at once?  Save time with the import function. 

  1. Login to the cloud at and click "Athlete" Tab in the upper left hand corner.

  3. A system dialog box will pop up - you can add an individual athlete here - click the import athletes Tab in the top right corner to proceed with a roster import:

  4. Click "Download template" to download an excel .csv file pre-populated with the appropriate headers, input your athletes' information (name, position, photo), return to the Import Athletes dialog, choose a team/group and click Import - find the .csv file you've created and import it.

Note: the only field you need to input in the excel file is the name column - you can leave the position and photo columns blank if needed.  To import a photo, insert a link to a photo of each athlete hosted somewhere online.
