Importing athletes via CSV
Swift Labs allows you to import athletes via a CSV input.
Navigating to the athletes page, you will be presented with a list of your athletes, or if you have yet to add any athletes; a page detailing the options in how to add athletes.
By clicking the import button on the athletes page, you will be prompted to upload the CSV file with your athlete data.

The CSV file has some strict formatting rules that must be followed. The table below contains the a description for each of the CSV keys and whether the column is required.
IMPORTANT
It should be noted that the Athlete’s height and weight is dependent on the value in the Units column. ‘metric’ will treat athlete weight and height in Kilograms and Centimetres respectively. Vice-versa ‘imperial’ will treat weight in pounds and height in feet and inches. Imperial athlete height must be input as ‘X ft X in’, eg, ‘6 ft 2 in’. All units within labs are displayed depending on your profile settings.
