Phonetic Spelling Competitor Names
Coaches can enter a phonetic spelling of their competitor names to assist tournament directors and judges on the correct pronunciation of names. This should help make our community more welcoming and inviting. Thanks to the student who emailed me requesting this feature and explaining how having her name mispronounced on each ballot and at awards was discouraging her participation in the activity.
