As well as adding and editing individual sessions, you also have the option to cancel a session via the FA Events Platform, which is really handy should the weather be bad, people can't make it, or there is another important matter that needs to be attended to at the same time and day.
This video walks through the process of cancelling a session. There is written guidance below if you prefer.
When you've chosen the 'Sessions' tab on the left side menu, ensure you are on the 'Current Sessions' tab at the top so that you can see all your future sessions lined up in order.
For the particular session which you want to cancel, click on the desired one from the list you have. You will land on the session 'Details' tab, and to the right is the 'Cancel Session' button. Click this to cancel that individual session.
After choosing to cancel the session, it brings up a warning - just to double check with you (as you might have participants already booked on). Please ensure the session you are cancelling is the correct time, day and event - or you might have some unhappy footballers!
You then have the ability to explain why the session has been cancelled. Here, you can write a message which will be automatically emailed to all those participants who have booked onto your session. This means less faffing around for you trying to find everyone's email addresses!
Once sent, this will show on the theFA.com as a cancelled session and you will have an alert at the end to confirm the cancellation.
That individual session will now transfer from your 'Current Sessions' tab to your 'Cancelled Sessions' tab on the Events Platform main menu.
EXTRA: If the start date of a series of sessions needs to be brought forward, you should cancel the existing sessions and edit your application for County FA re-approval.
