The Top 3 Tournament Scheduling Fails (And How to Fix Them)

Let’s face it: Tournaments can be chaotic. And if you happen to be the head honcho, it’s your responsibility to keep everything under control.

Fortunately, we’re here to help you control the chaos. The newly-minted TeamSnap Tournaments will help you host profitable, organized and streamlined events in no time. Here’s how we’ll solve these common tournament blunders.

The Bad Reputation

“We’re never coming back to this tournament.” As a tournament organizer, that’s about the worst comment an attendee can make. It’s tough to blame them; If people have a bad time at a disorganized tournament, you can’t expect them to come back. Furthermore, they’ll be sure to tell their friends about their poor experience—which could cost you even more potential business.

But fear not! With TeamSnap Tournaments, you’ll host professional events that will have teams returning year after year. Our tournament software makes it easy for everyone to know where to be and when to be there. You’ll earn repeat business, which will increase your long-term revenue. In addition, you’ll be able to promote your tournament sponsors in our app. They’ll pay you for the extra exposure, oftentimes enough to cover the cost of our app!

The All-Nighter

Ever stayed up for hours before a tournament trying to get your schedule right? Factor in scheduling conflicts or multiple age divisions and you might never get to sleep. All-nighters are for college students, not tournament directors!

TeamSnap Tournaments takes hours of work and compacts it into minutes. With our tournament app, you can auto-generate your pools and brackets. Just enter your teams, conflicts, start and end times, rinks, courts or fields. We’ll handle the rest so you can get some shut-eye.

The Last-Minute Switch-Up

Even when you perfect your schedule, you can be sure that some team will miss their flight, another will have to forfeit and another will be abducted by aliens (maybe not that last one). When the unexpected happens, you’ll need help getting the word out to everyone.

We’ve got your back. Using TeamSnap Tournaments, you can notify everyone about schedule changes instantly. Since you can’t count on having access to a computer at your tournament, you can do it all from your phone using our mobile app. It’s the best way to be prepared, no matter what happens.
