WWW.MCSSPORT.ORG – Tips for how to use & FAQs

To see at a glance What’s On, Where and When you have a number of choices:

  • You can either navigate to our Sports Calendar via the main menu, and then select the day you are interested in and then click the Details link. This shows the venue and if we're playing away will have a link to the location map of our opponent's school. You can also see the team selected for the fixture wherever you see this blue image . We aim to announce team selections 48 hours before the fixture, but I’m sure you will appreciate, this is not always possible. The password was sent out recently in Usher's mailing with a further copy of this document and a letter from Andy Watts. For security reasons it is not published here. Please email mbrine@mcsoxford.org or awatts@mcsoxford.org if you are unable to locate it.
  • If you are unsure of which team your son or daughter may have been selected for, you can search for this as follows: From Sports Menu (on left) choose Sports Calendar, click on the date you require; enter the team sheet password (see above), then press ctrl F and then type in the name you are searching for, if you scroll down you will see your son or daughter’s name highlighted which will then advise you which team they are playing in and the details of the fixture. Please remember that selection can alter, so it is worth rechecking 24 hours before the fixture.

  • From the Sports Calendar you can also click directly through to a team's fixtures & results listing by clicking the Team's Name. e.g. click on the “Boys-U16A”.

  • If you are following a particular team or teams you can also select Sports & Teams Fixtures & Results from the main menu. Then select a particular sport and your team to see past results and upcoming fixtures.

  • From any teams Fixture list you can “Spy” on the opponents recent results by clicking on the spyglass button , or see the playing record by clicking on this button , or find their location by clicking on the map point button .

  • From any team’s Fixtures & Results listings you can also download the entire fixture list to your personal calendar on your PC or mobile device (such as an iPhone or iPad). Any changes we make to our fixtures will be synchronised with your personal calendar whenever you connect your PC or mobile device to the Internet.

  • If you need to quickly find an away venue for one of our opponents you can either choose the map link directly from a fixture, available via the “details” button as described above, or you can select “Opponent Maps & Links” from the main menu.

  • If you are visiting our sports website on your mobile phone you will notice it loads up as a Mobile Web App. Full instructions for how to get the most out of the Web App can be found online. The mobile Web App will allow you to access Fixture and Team Sheet information on the go!

  • The News feed is updated regularly with important information for you from updates on fixtures due to weather conditions to sports team photograph information, and the weekly sports report is uploaded here on a Monday for the past week’s results and performances.

  • The Resources section (on the menu on the left hand side of the page) will give you links for all sorts of information from a who’s who in the Sports Department to kit lists and parent handbooks. There are also useful links here to resources from governing bodies e.g. RFU Headcase and this should be a regular port of call for you to get vital information regarding sport at MCS.
