simple noob question about routes

Hi guys, I really thought I had this sorted, but I cant figure this out!

I'm building an app (ruby 1.9.3, rails 3.2.2).

The app has teams, and in my teams_controller I want to have a method
called apply_to_coach_team, with a form that allows you to apply to
coach a new team.

The problem is, every time I click the link to go to the form I get the

Couldn't find Team with id=apply_to_coach_team

The app seems to be going to the teams#show method, and looking for a
team with the id above.

in routes.db I have:

match "/teams/apply_to_coach_team" => "teams#apply_to_coach_team", :as
=> :apply_to_coach_team

my teams_controller is just an empty method

  def apply_to_coach_team


and my view is just a stub for now

<h1> apply to coach new team </h1>

My link to this page looks like this :

<%= link_to "apply to coach new team", apply_to_coach_team_path, class:
"btn btn-mini btn-action" %>

Can anyone tell me what simple mistake I'm making please!??

Thanks in advance

Run "rake routes" from the command line to see what the system
expects. Depending on the results from "rake routes", you probably
need to change your link to call the path method differently. Maybe
you need to call it passing in, or maybe the method should
have a different name.

I got it!

For anyone else who's a bit rails rusty, and has forgotten this the
route to the new method has to go BEFORE the other routes created by
resources :teams

match "/teams/apply_to_coach_team" => "teams#apply_to_coach_team", :as
=> :apply_to_coach_team

resources :teams

This makes sense when I think about it!

You could also do:

resources :teams do
member do
get :action_which_acts_on_member

collection do
get :action_which_acts_on_collection

I find this cleaner, and this also generates named path helpers without requiring you to provide :as option.

Cheers for the help guys, the routes for members / the collection is
interesting I'll need to read more about how these work, cheers
