Introduction
The MYAS is encouraging all MYBA members to utilize the Tourney Machine platform to produce the tournament brackets for their tournament.

Why use Tourney Machine for my tournament?

  • It’s affordable! MYBA members receive a discounted fee of only $2 per team – saving your association precious funding.
  • It’s easy! Tourney Machine puts you in control of your tournament and takes the hassles out of scheduling. Drag and drop features, along with built in logic, makes creating a schedule for your tournament a snap. And the free app lets parents and coaches easily view results. It also makes entering scores for tournament directors possible from anywhere. No more need for a centralized computer and wifi connection – use your phone to update games as soon as they are finished!
  • Scores automatically flow to the Trusted Rankings platform. No more manual entering needed. Not only does this save time, but it increases the accuracy for Trusted Rankings.
  • Easier team identification means no surprises or mystery with what team has registered for your tournament. A structured team naming format means scores flowing to Trusted Rankings are consistent and accurate – allowing you to not only improve the match-ups for your home tournament, but also see how your association’s teams are performing while they play away from home.
  • The possibility of eliminating the in-person state seeding meetings! With wide adaption, Trusted Rankings will collect and organize team records and results, making seeding for the state tournament clearer, simpler and straightforward!

Testimonials

East Ridge Boys Tournament Director, Lisa Jones "Thank you MYAS for your support and recommendation to use Tourney Machine.  I was able to finish our Boys brackets (182 teams, 293 games, 5 sites, 14 courts) in less than a day with no issues.  Having all the teams available to import made building the divisions quick and easy.  The drag and drop scheduling feature was so simple to use and error proof, I loved how it instantly notified you if you had a scheduling conflict and how it color coded each division.  I'm way ahead of planning for our tournament because of how easy it was to build our brackets by myself. I highly recommend using Tourney Machine, it's user-friendly, intuitive and easy to use.

OMGBA Girls Tournament Director, Deb Anderson "OMGBA recognizes and appreciates the support of MYAS every year, but especially this year.  Planning the OMGBA Girls Tournament while navigating the new and changing COVID-19 guidelines has been a challenge.  I feel fortunate to have the support and resources of MYAS to assist in planning a safe and successful tournament.  This is also the perfect year to switch to Tourney Machine.  There is much more movement in the schedule than we have seen in prior years and providing the Tournament Directors the ability to modify things easily is key.  As expected with learning a new tool, I had questions along the way, but Jeremy and the Tourney Machine staff were quick to reply and provide support.  Thank you, MYAS!"

Chaska Boys Tournament Director, Becca Richardson "The new platform that MYAS has provided was easy to use and provided many options to schedule our tournament with the modifications we wanted due to COVID19. The Tourney Machine chat support was amazing in answering any of my questions and helping me through the process of scheduling. Our tournament hasn't taken place yet, so we haven't used the scoring function yet, but I really like that all of the scores and team records will be stored in a central place which will eliminate the need for a seeding meeting at the end of the year.
