I've been asked to help setting up CiviCRM installation for local judo association. Never used the system before so if I could get some guidelines how to setup the organisation in the system I'd be grateful.
I've purchased the 2 existing books for CiviCRM and most of the functionality is clear to me. But I'm not sure how to setup the association levels. There are nationwide admins, then local clubs, their coaches and maybe extra secretary and at the bottom regular members (adults, kids and their parents). Should I set up each club as separate "Organisation" level type or a group? It is essential that coaches (and whoever is assign to particular club) only see their own club members and no-one else, obviously.
I'm using Civi on top of Drupal 7, if that's any help.
Any help appreciated.
