PACE Online Tournament Training Sessions

Post by Mike Bentley »

Hi, I'll be leading some training sessions for tournament directors and staffers to prepare for running online tournaments. These sessions will complement the PACE online tournament guide available here: http://www.pace-nsc.org/online-tournament-guide/

These sessions (in the form of a Zoom meeting) will cover the basics of hosting a tournament over Discord and/or Zoom and go into detail on how to moderate and keep stats at an online tournament.

We will be running sessions on Sunday, September 20th, 2020 at 3 PM Eastern and Saturday, October 3rd, 2020 at 3 PM Eastern. The start of the sessions will cover how to read and keep score at an online tournament. That should take about 30 minutes. The remaining part of the session (maybe 90 minutes?) will be on how to direct an online tournament and will be more in depth.

Further sessions may follow if there’s enough interest.

To sign up for the sessions, please fill out this form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIp ... sp=sf_link

Once you sign up, I'll provide more details on how to join.

Have you considered recording the training sessions for those who cannot attend on the given dates?
