General Information

What is a Club Administrator?

A Club Administrator is any individual member who has been approved by a participating sports Club to have authority and the associated permissions to administer, control, make changes to and perform the various online functions associated with managing the Club’s iSign account.

What does it cost?

There is no cost associated with creating an iSign Member Account. Once created, any iSign Member is able to apply for and manage as many Administrator roles with as many Clubs as required, also without incurring any cost.

The only functions in the iSign website which incur a cost to the Member, are as follows:

Paying for a Player Registration - This consists of the following components:

  • Player Registration Fee (Calculated and Set by your Club)
  • iSign Processing Fee ($7.00 Levy per Registration)
  • Any Relevant Taxes (GST)
  • Credit Card Fee (Calculated and Set by our Bank)

Purchasing SMS Credits - If an iSign Member elects to receive SMS messages from their Club Administrators, Managers and Coaches they will need to purchase SMS Credits which are consumed at a rate of $0.25 per message received, by the receiving iSign Member.

Purchasing a Communications Subscription - If an iSign Member wishes to receive messages relating to a Team for which they are not 'approved' as an Administrator or 'Registered' as a Player, they will achieve this by purchasing a Communication Subscription through the iSign website. The price of a Communication Subscription varies depending on the subscription period selected at the time of purchase. Once a Communication Subscription is purchased, it can be used to apply to receive messages relating to as many Teams across as many Clubs as required, during the active subscription period.

There are no other costs incurred in the course of using the iSign website.

Do I need an iSign Member Account before I can request a Club Administrator role?

Yes. Each Individual wanting to make use of the iSign website service offerings must first set up an account for themselves. Once set up, their profile can be used to do any of the following, with any participating Club(s)/Team(s):

  • Request a Club Administrator role
  • Request a Team Administrator role
  • Request a Communication Subscriber role
  • Perform a Player Registration
  • Receive Club or Team Communications

How many Club Administrator roles can I request/perform?

You can request, have approved and perform as many Club Administrator or other roles as you wish or require. iSign supports a ‘one-to-many’ concept, whereby any single member account can be used to support unlimited roles within the iSign website.

As an extreme example, a single individual could be simultaneously approved and recognised as:

  • A Club Administrator at one or more participating Clubs, and/or
  • A Team Administrator at one or more participating Clubs for one or more Teams, and/or
  • A Communications Subscriber at any number of Clubs for any number of Teams, and/or
  • A Registered Player at any number of Clubs and/or Teams.

Are all Club Administrators created equal?

Not necessarily. The Individual who first creates the Club’s iSign Account, is designated as the Master Club Administrator and by default is assigned all possible permissions and privileges at that Club. The Master Administrator is all powerful and is in-turn responsible for assigning all or selected permissions to each subsequently approved Club Administrator at their Club. Therefore, at the sole discretion of the Master Administrator, different Club Administrators could be assigned differing permissions.

What happens when the Master Administrator steps down from his Office at the Club?

The outgoing Master Administrator has the responsibility to transfer his ‘Master’ status to the duly elected and appointed incoming replacement. There is only ever one Master Administrator at each Club.

How long does a Club Administrator remain in Office for?

The Request by one party (usually the Individual) and the Approval by the other (usually the Club), represents a mutual agreement in the appointment of a Club Administrator. The Club Administrator remains appointed in perpetuity until he/she is either withdrawn or removed. The Club Administrator can either ’remove’ himself or can be ‘removed’ by the Club (either party can act unilaterally to effect this) in the event of new office elections taking place at the Club, or for any other reason at any other time.

What is the difference between a Club Administrator and a Team Administrator in iSign?

A Club Administrator is assigned more rights and capabilities in the iSign website than a Team Administrator, and can administer those rights across all Teams at their Club. By contrast, a Team Administrator is assigned a more limited set of rights and capabilities which are restricted to only the Team(s) that he/she has been approved for. In the same way, a Team Administrator’s permissions generally represent a subset of a Club Administrator’s permissions.
