TAMPA, Fla. — rSchoolToday announced it has signed on with four NAIA Collegiate Conferences as their official Conference Scheduling Solution. rSchoolToday is excited to partner with the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference, Mid-South Conference, River States Conference, and Southern States Athletic Conference to provide a new and innovative game scheduling solution at the collegiate level.
“It has been an incredibly gratifying experience to work with the leaders of all four conferences,” Scott Rosenberg, National Collegiate Sales Manager at rSchoolToday, said. “Our company is committed to helping these leaders automate the complicated task of creating fair and balanced game schedules at the collegiate level. All four conferences are highly respected for their innovative use of technology and trailblazing mentality. It is an honor to partner with them and we are excited for what the future holds.”
“I am delighted to partner with rSchoolToday and utilize their scheduling software to address the many variables facing the KCAC when developing sports schedules,” Dr. Scott Crawford, Commissioner of the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference, said. “Having the ability to reduce missed class time midweek and ensure teams are not traveling extreme distances is one of the key factors in choosing their platform. Not only will this help with missed class time, but it will also help with getting road teams back home at more favorable hours in the evening midweek.”
“As a conference, we are required to have five years of schedules in place for every sport,” Crawford continued. “The rSchoolToday platform will make developing these five-year schedules easier than ever before. I really appreciate the platform’s communication tools and being able to share schedules with athletics departments much simpler before we go public with the season schedule. I am also excited about the possibility of using their technology to be able to post finished schedules into the conference website as well as to each school’s athletics website.”
“Sports scheduling is an extremely necessary and time-consuming task,” Eric Ward, commissioner of the Mid-South Athletic Conference, stated. “The rSchoolToday software package will allow the conference to prepare sports schedules more efficiently due to the many variables built into the software. Our priorities in scheduling are always to maximize class attendance for our student-athletes and minimize travel cost for our member institutions. The rSchoolToday software will make these priorities more easily accomplished in less time and with fewer frustrations. The Mid-South Conference is excited to partner with rSchoolToday.”
“Creating fair and equitable schedules for our members that take into account all the various parameters of a diverse conference with a wide footprint has always been a challenge,” Michael Schell, commissioner of the River States Conference, stated. “The River States Conference is proud to partner with rSchoolToday to utilize their technology to accomplish this task. We look forward to working together.”
“We are thrilled to partner with rSchoolToday to help manage our scheduling more efficiently. We also think their sports management platform could be a great asset to our member schools,” Mike Hall, commissioner of the Southern States Athletic Conference, said.
