Following Teams:


1. The primary method to create a tournament schedule is by assigning recruits to tournaments and mapping recruits to their tourney teams. The secondary method is by following teams. This is best when you have a particular coach or team that you want to keep an eye on even if there isn't a particular recruit you are scouting at this time. Following a team will add all games that team plays in to the coaches schedule who is following them.

2. To follow a tourney team, first select a tournament you are planning to attend, and   assign coaches if needed.
