we are back again with an update about the second teams in hattrick youthclub. Hattrick has released the updated CHPP API files for the second teams on the 2nd of May. We have analyzed the new CHPP File Structure and how it fit to our structure.
The good news: It will be possible to manage your second team in HY as well.
The bad news: The changes we have to apply to HY for managing a second team are very time expensive. Thus it will take some time until you will be able to manage your second team in hattrick youthclub.
Right now we plan to add the service for managing the second team in HY to your current account – so you will only have one account (as in HT) and you can switch between your two teams. Thus there will be no need for a second registration. Of course we plan that you are free to decide on your own, if you manage your first, your second, both or none youth teams in HY.
As said before, it will take some time until we are done with implementing all needed changes. Please keep in mind, that we work on HY in our free-time (Homer is studying and I have a regular nine to five job), thus we cannot spend as much time on the developing work as we would like to spent. Additionally, I am still the only developer and we do not just want to implement it anyhow – we want to do it right.
So, if you like to help us with developing this page, you are very welcome to apply on our job page http://www.hattrick-youthclub.org/site/jobs
We will update this blog entry with major status updates and as soon as the 2nd teams can be managed on HY, we will post a new blog entry. Please make sure that you follow this blog and spread the word about our blog!
You can be sure that we are working on it – please be patient,
a few days ago Hattrick has announced, that Platinum Supporters can manage a second team in Hattrick. If you decide to manage a second team you will be able to open a second Youth Academy as well. Thus one question arise here: “Can we manage our second team on hattrick youthclub?”
Right now we cannot answer this question for sure, but we are willing to add an option to manage the second team in hattrick youthclub as well!
Hattrick told the CHPP developers, that they will provide access to the data of the second team via CHPP interface / api. But right now, it is undecided how this access will look and work. Therefore we cannot say whether we will be able to provide a way to manage a second youth team in hattrick youthclub and when.
Assuming that Hattrick will release the new CHPP api specifications with (global) season 52, we have to check how these changes affect hattrick youthclub and then we can decide how to implement the second team in hattrick youthclub and identify the limitations.

Now it is possible to add rejected players to hattrick-youthclub, too.
You might be wondering how you can profit, if you add them to hattrick youthclub. You cannot profit yourself by adding them, but the other users can profit. If you add rejected players with their scout comments to hattrick youthclub other users, who pulls them into their youth academy, profit from the information you added.
We hope that everybody will add his/her rejected players, because then everybody have the chance to get more information about his newest players. Please also have a look on our video on youtube, where we explain how it works! Of course it only works for players who are scouted by users of hattrick youthclub and who inserted the information.
I am looking forward for my first player who was scouted by one of you before
