Testimonials: 

Larry Simpson (Tournament Director) - Rogers Royals Tipoff  Club
Partnering with MYAS to do the scheduling for both our girls and boys travel tournaments these past 3 years have proven to be one of the best decisions we have made here in Rogers.   We have experienced a 30% growth in participating teams and now have over 200 teams playing in these 2 tournaments.   We used to schedule the old fashioned way, a group of us sitting around tables.   Needless to say mistakes can easily be made doing scheduling by hand and our time is better spent in other areas.  
Jeremy and Rich are great to work with and they provide whatever help we ask of them.  That includes posting last minute openings on their website.  With teams coming from various parts of the state, we want to make sure they all have a good experience in Rogers.  The MYAS scheduling takes into consideration game start times for teams traveling  long distances and they make sure to limit  down time between games for all teams.   That keeps everyone happy, consequently we get a lot of comments like “Rogers runs a Great Tournament!”   We feel in large part that is due to good scheduling, which  allows us to focus other parts of the tournaments that keep the teams coming back year to year.  We would strongly recommend using MYAS scheduling  to all associations running basketball tournaments!      

Layne Skoyen - Director, Hastings Spiral Classic Basketball Tournament
As a volunteer with our Hastings Basketball Booster organization, it is very difficult to devote the time needed to coordinate a successful annual tournament.  The staff at MYAS took many of the headaches away with their tournament service program which provides a website, bracketing, printing of forms etc…  This year was a breeze compared to last year – very few emails or calls.  MYAS is so easy to work with and very responsive to any questions or concerns.  I would highly recommend this program to any Director that feels overwhelmed by the details and pressure of hosting a successful basketball tournament.  
 
Bill Hutchison - Osseo Maple Grove Basketball Association

‘Working and partnering with MYAS Scheduling Services on our tournament provided great value and growth to our tournament.  Jeremy and Rich provides us with great service with the scheduling of over 300 teams allowing us to have our most successful tournament ever.  Their experience from both a scheduling perspective, as well as they contacts throughout the various traveling associations proved to be invaluable in allowing us to deliver a successful tournament.  Lastly, Jeremy and Rich made themselves available and on call throughout the entire process to ensure successful results.  We plan on continuing and growing our partnership with MYAS, and would highly recommend them as a great tournament partner.’

Nate Whitcomb (Tournament Director - Rogers Area Youth Basketball Association)
Rogers youth basketball hosted its first tournament this season.  With all of the work involved to run a successful event, we opted to use the MYAS scheduling services and couldn't have been happier.  They were able to turn around the schedules and brackets very quickly and accommodated a handful of special requests for things like teams traveling long distances, groups with other events that weekend, etc.  The online scoring function is also very handy, allowing teams to view results in real time and see when their next games are scheduled.  Even not having to worry about creating score sheets for every court was a nice feature.  Needless to say, our time was better spent focusing on other areas, and combined with this service, our tournament got rave reviews and we're looking forward to partnering with MYAS for our tournament needs in the future.

Tina Donchetz - Tournament Director, Burnsville Girls Traveling Basketball
We have used the service of MYAS for the past three years.  Jeremy Innes was our main contact and his timeliness and ease to work with was fantastic. The service MYAS provided us included scheduling all our games (we had 149!), they set up a link for our web site to access our brackets/pools and directions to the gyms, they advertised openings in our tournaments on their web site and after the tournament they updated the results of all the games. Using MYAS not only gave us the confidence that we had no errors in our schedule, but saved us hours and hours of work.  Any last minute changes (for example adding or deleting a team) were an easy and quick change for MYAS.  We were also able to give them certain parameters to use when putting the schedule together, for example:  We wanted only 1 hour breaks between games, if someone had an 8am Saturday game they played in the afternoon on Sunday, etc .  By being able to fine tune our brackets and pools, this helped us to ensure that our tournament was the best experience possible for all that came. We already know we'll be using them again next year!  I can't even imagine trying to do it without them.

Paula O'Brien - Tournament Director, Roseomount Traveling Basketball
The scheduling services provided by MYAS were efficient, cost effective  and easy to use.  The staff at MYAS were incredibly patient and helpful throughout the entire process.  The online updating was simple and fast.  This was, by far, the best thing we did for our tournament and for our volunteers!!! Thank you!!!

Tom Shepley - Burnsville Boys Basketball Association
I worked with MYAS to do all of our Tournament scheduling, which was a GREAT decision. We had 108 teams from over 22 cities which required 177 games to complete our brackets. With 8 different courts, which were only available at certain times throughout the weekend, I can’t even imagine trying to do all of the scheduling myself. Nice additional benefits were coach sign in sheets, individual game score sheets and complete brackets to post both online and at our venue. It was one less headache I had to deal with and well worth the price.

What others liked about the services provided:

  • Having done the scheduling for previous tournaments by "hand" the MYAS service made incredibly easy. It also took a lot of the potential scheduling conflicts/human error out of the equation

  • I am pleased to report that our tournament was a success.   174 games on 12 courts at 2 locations over 3 days all came together without a hitch.   Great job on the brackets!   Thanks for your responsiveness in the weeks prior to the tournament.

  • Ease in working with MYAS staff.
  • I received enlarged paper copies of all the brackets and rules. Everything was completed within two days.
  • ease of use, timeliness and the incredible patience of the MYAS staff!!!!!
  • The scheduling services provided by MYAS was great! It was an aspect of our tournament that we didn't have to spend time doing with all the other details it was awesome not to have to worry about brackets and scheduling! We will use them again!
  • MYAS staff is very quick to respond to our needs. Does their best to accomodate any requests.
  • Thanks for all of your effort with the our tournament.  Our next board meeting is next week so once I get feedback from the rest of the board I will let you know their thoughts about using the MYAS scheduling services next year.  My initial thought is that it was a life saver.
  • I thought your services were fantastic!  I can’t think of anything in terms of improvement.
