How to create a tournament

Auto-enrollment

Once you have created your tournament if you would like schools to book on then we fully recommend turning on 'Auto-enrollment'. You can find this by going to 'Tournaments' > choose your tournament and click 'Edit' > 'View' then go to the 'Auto-Enrollment- tab.

From here you can choose a number of things;

  • Auto-enrollment on - this will enable schools to be automatically added when they book on
  • School in read-only - This means that no school will be able to add / remove / amend their teams / students, we recommend leaving this off until no changes can be made by schools any longer due to event restrictions
  • Number of teams a school can bring - This enables you to limit each school to only bringing so many teams to the event
  • Number of teams available - You can limit the number of teams that can take part in the tournament, you can select this for each age group and gender if needed. Once the limit has been reached schools will then be placed on a waiting list.

Sending invites

There are two ways in which schools can book on, this is via your Squad in Touch public site of through an invitation which you can send. You can manage tournaments through the use of one or both methods. If you would like to send invites to all / specific schools then you can do so by going to 'Tournaments' > choose your tournament and click 'Edit' > 'View' and then you will be taken to 'Participants' from here select 'Send invites' and then choose your schools, or select all.

Once sent, schools will receive a notification (as long as their school settings enable them to) and they can then accept / reject your invite.
