Documentation

If TournamentSR doesn't launch, read "Ensuring your computer has Java". If you are new to the program, try the tutorials and read the "Quick Start Guide". If you are running a youth or open tournament, read the "Open tournaments supplement". The "Reference Manual" contains screen captures and detailed information on all features.

If you want to create PDF lists, brackets, and team scores, you'll need a PDF "printer" driver. The following documents describe how to download and install free drivers from the Internet.

If you can bring more than one computer to the tournament, our free support programs make your job much easier. Consult the appropriate User's Guide to determine if it's what you need. Download each program from the Try it now page (no log-in required).

Tell spectators, wrestlers, and coaches when WiFi brackets and team scores are available. Use the links below to download example flyers.

If you don't have your own form for entering a team's roster, try one of the documents below. They have been used by others to get the rosters quickly into the program.

TournamentSR also supports loading all wrestler names and seeding information from a single spreadsheet. The spreadsheet must follow the format described in section 4.1.3 of the Reference Manual. You can download an empty version of the spreadsheet using this link.
