Manually Create New User & Add Member to League

With your MyLO site, you are able to create user accounts for your members and add them to your League's group. You can also set up your site so that your members can request the user account from you--all you have to do is approve. You also have the option of requesting a bulk member upload from the MyLO Team, where you'd provide us with the formatted spreadsheet of all your members & we upload all of them at once.
