Get Ready for the New Season! Things to do in September.

This year's wrestling season is right around the corner!  Time to get ready.  Here's what you can do now to get more out of Takedown during the season:

  1. If you don't already have a Twitter account, get one now. It's free.  Takedown supports automatic live score streaming to Twitter. This one's a no-brainer if you're interested in keeping your fans informed and engaged.  Do it or ask a parent or athlete for help.
  2. Learn how to use Takedown with an external scoreboard.   Takedown generates scoreboard content automatically from your scoring activity, no need for a separate scoreboard operator!  Inexpensive, accurate and easy. Another no-brainer.
  3. If you're a coach, train someone else on using Takedown.  Recruit a student or parent, or train your team manager.
  4. Now's a good time to pick up an iPad or iPad mini at a reasonable price.  We found a new iPad mini for $199 at a big box retailer last week!
  5. Gather up last year's paper score books and enter match scoring data for returning athletes.  You and your athletes will have a detailed, objective and comprehensive view of last year's performance.  Use this data to set concrete and specific goals for the upcoming season for the team and each athlete.
  6. Setup your new Season.  Enter your Schedule and edit your Roster by removing non-returning wrestlers and adding new athletes.
  7. Look for a new Takedown release later in September.  This release features exciting new capabilities in scoring, stats and fan engagement.

Good Luck this Season, Team Takedown
