Help Topics / Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How and when can I start setting up my teams for next season?

A new school year +1 is added to SOCS in, or soon after, the 1st week in August annually. This ensures schools can plan fixtures and competitions up to two years ahead.

During the 1st week of August the default school year also changes to the next school year. This means your sports and teams for the current school year will always appear by default on the Sports and Teams, Fixtures and Results web page in both the SOCS control panel and dedicated sports website.

For example:

  • In August 2018 the 2019/20 school year is added and the 2018/19 school year becomes the default school year.
  • In August 2019 the 2020/21 school year is added and the 2019/20 school year becomes the default school year.

All previous school years are available via the Select Another Season drop down list on relevant web pages.

Once a new school year is added it is selectable in the season drop down list.


  • You need take no action as this is an automatic system change.
  • You will be notified of the change via an alert pop up in your SOCS control panel.
  • All your sports and teams with their fixtures and results from previous school years are retained in your  previous season's archive.
