Hoopdog.com has gone live..

Wow.. what a week. Our web site is up and running and people are starting to create users accounts. We are currently thrilled to have the Saratoga Sparks (Saratoga, New York) use our site for Player Registration and Tournament scheduling. The Sparks have been great to work with and they are just as excited as we are to be using Hoopdog to start building the Fast Break Community. Their players are busy updating their profile pages and their organization users are busy getting the word out about their upcoming tryouts and their annual tournaments.

We have also gone live with our Hoopdog.com help desk. We will be providing telephone support Monday-Friday from 9:00am through 5:00pm and online support weeknights from 5:00pm till 9:00 and Saturday’s from 9:00am till 5:00pm. Members have the options of calling, emailing or chatting on-line. (we plan to be closed for major holidays)

This week has been hectic, and we did have to work out a couple of wrinkles, specifically with older versions of Internet Explorer, but we are live and ready to serve the Fast Break Community.

Our next step is to start reaching out to other basketball organizations and college coaches to start introducing them to the benefits of Hoopdog.com.

Creating Something Useful…

Every now and again something simple is created that people find extremely useful. Something that’s not overdone or trying to accomplish more than it’s intended to do. Something simple and easy to understand that actually accomplished a goal. I think our website falls into that fold. We’ve identified a need and provided a simple solution. We designed a website that we believe will help Club Basketball Organizations and their Coaches, Players, Fans and the College Coaching community.

Our site was created and developed with club basketball community in mind… For organization managers or the poor soul who volunteered as tournament director, we have built a very easy to use interface which will enable them to generate guaranteed game schedules with the push of a button. You can advertise your tournament on HoopDog.com, have teams register to participate and collect tournament fees though our interface… and when the time is right you can generate the tournament schedule and notify your participates… all the stressful details are taken care of. All you have to do is secure your venues and focus on promoting your event.
