Elk River Hockey, Becker Softball, Eden Prairie Lacrosse, Breakaway Hockey and Wow Factor Sports were among the Minnesota-based organizations represented during the How to Throw an Incredible Tournament workshop held Thursday, May 28 at Sport Ngin headquarters in Minneapolis.
The Sport Ngin Community event also was streamed live, attracting a nationwide audience.
The workshop was hosted by Community Manager Loren Nelson and featured panelists Chris McPhee, Sean Ryan, Liz Haakenson and Jim Dahline.

Ryan, Sport Ngin’s Enterprise Account Manager, showed how statistics can be entered and tracked in Tourney. He also demonstrated how Sitebuilder widgets powered by Tourney data can be created.
Haakenson, Sport Ngin’s resident Tourney expert, showed how to set up a tournament, post standings and utilize the mobile app to maximize the tournament experience.
Dahline, Sport Ngin’s Director of Marketing and the Communications Chief for the U.S. Pond Hockey Championships, led an Operations Checklist session that focused on how to set up and efficiently run a tournament.
The workshop was part of a continuing series of free Sport Ngin Community training and social events. Up next is Risk Management, Sponsorships & Volunteers scheduled for June 18.
