The team at Southeastern Scuffle uses Throwdowns to power their yearly competition, as well as fundraiser competitions from time to time. Their team's priority is keeping things simple on the admin side so they can focus elsewhere and help their event grow. They achieved this goal and doubled their event from 2017 to 2018, and are looking to grow again in 2019! Throwdowns helps them keep registration and scoring streamlined so they can think about other things.

How has Throwdowns made organizing an event easier for you?
They take the hassle of handling registrations off my plate. I don’t have to use an outdated, manual scoring system.

It lets me store all past competitors’ contact info so that I can reach out each year to those from the past. I automatically have a list of athletes to invite to future events.
