MYBA Board of Advisors Mid Season Meeting
Below are notes from the BOA meeting that was held on January 25th.
Newness of the platform
Other Event Management platform has a QR code feature to efficiently input game scores (Developer of RegisterPlay has already added this feature since meeting)
The biggest concern stated is pricing.
A member of BOA did present the idea of raising the entry fee $5 to cover the cost for associations that don’t know how to cover the per team fee.
Conducting tournament brackets on excel spreadsheets is not attractive.
Not all associations connected to RegisterPlay for their tournament administration makes it difficult to have data accuracy.
Smoother flow of data and information in the platform
Lack of reporting tools. More steps to be able to print off reports for association tournament directors.
Ability for association leaders to delete teams not being used.
Great one stop shop for youth basketball
app needs a “back” button. If you get into something and just want to go back to the last page you are on, it doesn’t allow that.
Doesn’t factor in out of state teams
You can manually enter those scores
Combined Grades for tourneys is not effective for the index.
Inaccurate data because of other event management tools being used.
Teams playing down a level at tourneys needs to be addressed
Private School Policy Update
4 games in a day at an invitational tournament is unacceptable. Setting standards is a necessity.
Playing rules being inconsistent
Game Officials starting games early at tournaments
Consistency in Game Fees
Best Practices discussed- Using MSHSL and/or Trusted Officials at invitational tournaments
Encouraged MYAS to work with Assignors and Officials

Enjoy the culmination of the 2023-2024 winter travel youth basketball season! It is so wonderful to see the participation numbers for Grade State, at an all-time high. There are 645 Girls teams who have already gone through the seeding process and we currently have 988 Boys teams registered. And they say the state of Minnesota, is the State of Hockey? I am pretty sure that Minnesota is the State of Basketball!
