Having people fill out customized precompleted forms?
So, I would rate my website code design at a beginner-intermediate level.
Here's what I'd like this particular webpage to do. I work for a martial arts school and we'd like to transition our tournament applications from paper to online.
So, there would be a webpage with all of our students' names. When a student clicks his/her name, a tournament application would pop up that's filled with their name/gender/age. In addition, if I distinguished a student as either a kid or adult, it would pop up an application depending on if they were a kid/adult. That one, to me, is less of a hassle.
Each application would have checkboxes that they would click if they wanted to enter into more events than the standard fee provides.
All of this would be recorded and saved. I assume a CSV file would be easiest. Somehow.
Any thoughts on how one would accomplish this? I don't need the code written for me but if someone could point me in the right direction, I'd greatly appreciate it.
Thanks in advance!

What programming language are you looking to use?
A few years ago, my martial arts school wanted something similar. We had each student's information in a SQL database.
The way I had it setup, using PHP, was that the student would enter their student number (4 digit number). It would look up that # in the database, and prepopulate the form with the information form the database.
The school would then charge the cost to the next month's service.

You'll want to make sure that people can't signup other people without their permission. With your idea right now, I could go and click on someone's name and sign them up for something with no guarantee of permission from the person.
It depends on what language you know already. Personally, I'd recommend Ruby on Rails. It's easy to learn and has an extensive plugin system (called gems) that makes it easy to add certain functionality fast. For example, if you wanted student to be able to login with a password and register themselves, there's a gem called devise that makes it fairly easy to do so. You could even deploy it for free hosting on Heroku.com since I doubt you'd need a very power server to host it.
