Sports day program
I have been asked to find/create a program to manage our sports day results.
I am just about to start the coding but I wondered what other schools do?
Have you found a good free/commercial program to handle this job?

Open Office calc.
Alternatively, you could use excel.

Excel here - enter results, works out points, gives form and year totals etc.
Welcome to a copy if you want.

Can the P.E staff not just write them down? That's what they do here..
Or would this be too much work for them?

Our staff used to do that, then manually work out points etc.

I guess that is what the OP is doing it for.
I built ours 'cos it seemed like an obvious place IT could make their lives better which is pretty much what I'm there for! ;-)

Couple of worksheets I knocked up in excel, you'd have to tailor them to your own tutor groups but anyone's welcome to use them. Sports Day 07.zip

Also as male and female can compete in different events you need to enter males and females seperately -- I do this by just filtering on gender. I think next year I'll create seperate sheets for them. Also Y7&8 score on one system and Y9&10 on another.
Give me a yell if you need any more help with it as it's all in my head and not documented.

Just to say the sheet I uploaded yesterday had one or 2 errors in it. The link now has an amended version with the corrections made.

Anyone using sharepoint can quite easily set up a web based version as we have.
obviously this means no applications needed, less likelyhood of it being deleted/messed about with, etc
Windows also have some application templates which are quite good
Application Templates for Windows SharePoint Services 3.0
and one of these is a Sports League - could be adapted for you needs
Of course, this requires either WSS or MOSS to begin with - but I can really recommened it for schools anyway
