Minnesota Softball Rosters

ROSTER INSTRUCTIONS

Go to https://tournaments.mnsoftball.com and read the roster instruction document below or follow along on the instructions below.

Instructional videos can be found here https://tournaments.mnsoftball.com/#/pages/help/videos.

The purpose of using this system is to simplify the entire enterprise. Coaches will have less work to do. Parents and players will need to accurately create their existence in the database. As their data changes, they will have the power to update their address and other information.

The burden is no longer solely on the coaches which led to massive data errors or missing data.

This website will be the single source for:

  • Rosters and Printing Rosters
  • League Standings and Score Entry
  • Tournament Entry and Standings
  • Qualifier Tournaments
  • State Tournaments

Helpful images that better explain each step are also provided. If you click on the images they should expand so you can read them.

  • If you are on a phone the images are after each section.
  • If you are on a desktop the images are to the right of each section.

Creating a New User

If this is the first time entering the system, use the instructions below. 

Remember to always create a user for yourself and not your son or daughter. You will create them later under your account as "family members".

The reason for this is you can have different roles in here like umpire, tournament director, or adult softball player. Even if you intend never to be one of those roles, please follow instructions.

Friendly words of advice. FILL OUT THE FORM COMPLETELY AND ACCURATELY. Enter your birthdate, not your child’s birthdate. Do not make up a false birthdate. If you do that, your birthdate may limit the actions you can make in the system.

Make sure to create a password that you will remember and click on “I have read and accept teams and conditions.”

Then click on the gray “CREATE AN ACCOUNT” button.

Invite Players

You now have three (3) options to invite players to participate with your team:

  1. You can “Invite Player”. This is most used to invite a new player to the system. Invite Player requires you to know the player’s Name, Email Address, and Phone Number.
  2. You can use “Your Players”. This is for players that have played on teams with you in the past. Your Players will have a list of players to select from.
  3. You can “Search Existing Player”. This would be for players you know exist in the system but have not played on your team. Search Existing Player will require you to select a state and search on a name and then select from a list of players.

Joining A Team

Once you “Invite Player” they will get an email asking them to join the system just like you did.

If the player exists in the system, they will get an invitation to join your team. The invitation will also exist on their Dashboard > My Family tab next to your player’s name and it will say “Join a Team”.

Or Join A Team This Way

  • If you are standing next to a player or parent with a cell phone you can go to your team page on your phone, and they can scan the QR Code with their phone and accept your invitation to the team. This might be the easiest way since most teams get together before the season to practice.
  • Or they can follow the separate set of instructions from the same page above to the right of the QR Code.
