USFA is excited to kick off the new season by introducing the new USFA Mobile App to our valued teams. The app was unveiled in a limited form during World Series in Panama City Beach last month to glowing reviews. The new app will allow teams to sanction directly from their mobile device, along with being register for USFA Tournaments in a more efficient fashion.
Below are some of the key things to know as we start the new season.
On the desktop version of the website click on the "Team Sanction" tab at the top of the screen to register your team for the new season. All teams will have to register as a new team since the season begins August 1st. Once you have created an account and sanctioned your team, you will be able to register for tournaments via the mobile app.
Sanctioning directly from the mobile app is also available by clicking on events, and using the blue sanction button at the bottom of the page.
New Age Divisions:
Introducing the new 9u & 11u Divisions! There will be no classification for these Divisions as they are age pure. World Series will crown a Champion this year at each one of these Divisions. This is great for first year teams to be able to complete in a more consistent skill level bracket
Our Directors and host teams will be loading their tournaments into the new USFA Tournament Hosting system beginning August 1st. It will take a few weeks or so to get the majority of events posted in the system, so if you click on upcoming tournaments and don't the events you are accustomed to be patient.
To host tournaments click on the Host Tournament Request under the Tournament section on the website, and request your dates to host
We will be updating the additional site features over the next few days as well. Rules, World Series Info, and our social media forums will be set up very soon
USFA will now have a built in tournament scheduling function that will allow each event to be able to have the pool and bracket schedules in the app. We will begin tracking scores for all bracket games to help measure classifications using more precise data. Take a look at World Series in the app to see how the Bracket and Scheduling worked
Our staff is working diligently to get our site and app ready to roll for the new season.
