How can I clear sprint history?

I made a scrum board for testing purposes to evalute the use of greenhopper as our team is moving to an agile model of development. I made a scrum board with some of the tasks I had in jira and did a 'practice sprint' so that I could get a feel for what it was like to use the product.

We liked the product and wanted to do it 'for real' so I made a new scrum board for my team and when we try to create a sprint it knows about the one I did on the other board. This will mess up the velocity tracking for my team when the practice sprint data is incorporated with our real data ... is there a way to remove the old sprint history (or to treat this new board as working under a new team and the other sprints aren't associated?).

Greetings David,

Unfortunately, once a Sprint is closed, there is no way to go back and delete it. If the sprint is still in flight,then you can delete the sprint by following these isntrucutions:

I hope this helps!

Perhaps I phrased things poorly, I don't really care if I kill that sprint's history, I want to start a new scrum board and have it act like a new project with a new team with no previous history. I imagine there is something used to delineate between teams at least so that team 1 doesn't have to get their velocity metrics populated with team 2's.

...It's true that there are projects in Jira; but they are merely a way to cut off issues, to tell them apart from other sections of work and to apply rules that are specific to that team (the schemes)....
