We’ve all been there before. “How did I finish?”, “When do I play next?”, or “what time should we break for lunch”.
BVNE is where YOU, the player, the parent, college coaches, club coaches, recruiters…..EVERYONE, can access everything from pool play schedules, results, reffing assignments, and all playoff details. It’s all public and all accessible to everyone. The answers to those questions are in reach without going to the event desk.
So here’s a pool play sample. The main screen (not shown, but you can view it by clicking here) shows seeding information and who is in your pool. This screen shows the schedule, who is playing, and who is reffing. Times of course are approximate since games will take as long as they take, but it’s available online to everyone.
Then we have playoffs. This is where transparency really kicks in. Who plays who is controlled by the results of pool play. There’s no monkeying with playoffs here, and no guessing when you should warm up and be ready. Times of course are always approximate since games will take as long as they take.
The biggest challenge we still face is when one pool finishes early, and another is not up to done yet. BVNE BracketPal shows EVERYONE when a pool is finished, and when another pool is still unfinished in the same division. The big delay between pool play and playoffs is now clearly identified by what pool is still playing. Since playoffs only take five to ten minutes to create instead of a half hour or more, the wait time is drastically cut.
At Beach Volleyball National Events, we do our best at every event to help make sure our players have the best day we can provide, and make the most of their time on the beach.
All of the samples above are from our actual event, which you can view here:

We couldn’t do this without BracketPal, it’s a game changer!
