The Tournament administrator should add those emails to registration system
After adding team managers email to the system notify that person to go through "Forgot password" process to create a new password
When team manager logs in - they can manage its fighters: create new one, add/edit photos, categories, etc. (once registered a fighter team manager is only allowed to change fighters grade, category but not personal info such as first name last name, birthday etc. - security issues)
