Women and Girls in Soccer (WAGS) was thrilled to be host your showcase team (U16-U19) at the 2020 WAGS Rael Vodicka Memorial Tournament! Due to the nature of your age group and the inability for some college coaches to travel, WAGS would like to present your team with a special gift. Our tournament has purchased game film services so that each and every one of our recruitable players will have *at least one* game’s worth of footage from this year’s event to send to college coaches. We will be working with the videography company – NextPro to organize the schedule and onsite logistics for the tournament. The video crews will float between fields at FFC Park and VSTC throughout the weekend, attempting to work on one side of the park Saturday and then the other side on Sunday. If your schedule does not align with this plan, we have ensured that a crew will be sent specifically to your location to film your game either on Sunday or Monday. This was the best possible way for our videographers to capture the event, so unfortunately we aren’t able to take requests. This also means that certain teams may get bonus game footage based off of their schedule and game location.
Team managers (associated with your showcase teams account in GotSoccer) will receive an email directly from NextPro that gives details on how to access your account online, as well as how to invite and share the footage with players and families. NextPro has made the process very easy by setting up each team with their own account associated with the event.
To help you get the most out of your film from the event, we have compiled a list of “tips & how to’s” summarized below for accessing & using your videos. For any questions, you can reach NextPro’s customer service by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
WAGS has provided NextPro with a list of team managers who each will be setup on NextPro with an account (if they already don’t have one) and access to their team/s’ games from this event. Team managers can then invite each athlete and their family members by copying and pasting email addresses for each event’s game film.
Account and access creation for all team admin will be completed by EOD TBD at which time you team manager can invite their athletes and families.
On TBD, you can login into your account by following these simple steps:
Team managers can then invite each athlete and their family members by visiting the Team Invite section of their account, and copying and pasting email addresses of their team rosters & parents (if needed). Each added athlete or parent will then receive an invitation email to create an account and access their game videos.
