The Package Type dropdown on a registration Package gives you 3 options:

  • Participants
  • Bench Staff
  • Volunteer


This allows you to separate/group different types of participant registrations into these 3 groups.  The Package Type is the first question asked when the Online Registration user registers a participant.  This way, if a user selects "Participants", they will never see Packages that are configured in the other 2 types and will only be provided with a list of Packages configured as "Participants".
