The EventBeacon Rostering Tool allows teams and athletes to roster for an event. Once an athlete is rostered for an event, they will show up in the event admin system and on EventBeacon. Event Administrators, club coaches, and athletes are provided with a streamlined, hassle-free way to roster for events that are partnered with EventBeacon.
When you click into your event rostering link, there will be a main landing page. From here, you will be able to either import your team(s) from SportsRecruits or upload a roster CSV file, depending on whether your club is a SportsRecruits member.
If you are a team parent and do not have a SportsRecruits account with club staff access, or your team is not integrated on SportsRecruits, click the "No" button and follow the steps below.
Once uploaded, you will have full control over any changes to player information, which will be immediately visible to coaches through the EventBeacon app.

Coaches Books and Athlete Lists
Creating a coaches book, in addition to being incredibly time consuming when done manually, is often outdated soon after (or even before) an event starts, as roster/location/scheduling changes are common. With EventBeacon, all athlete information is pulled from players’ SportsRecruits profiles and verified by us to make sure it is accurate and up-to-date. This means that players are able to edit the information on their profile as many times as they’d like before an event, and these changes will be updated and reflected in the coaches book in real time.
If you have any issues rostering your team, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we would be happy to help you!
