Signing in

 
There are two different ways to log in and use your free membership.

The first way is by clicking on the "MEMBERS" link on the right tool bar. Once you've reached this link's page you will be presented with the member description page with a login dialog box. Enter your information and press the Login button.

The second way to log in is by selecting a tournament on the calendar view on the main page. You will be taken to the single event view page which has a login dialog box on it. If you fill in the fields and press Login, the membership toolbar will show up in place of the login dialog box.


 

Forgot your username or password?

 
If you've misplaced your membership information it can be sent to you by the server. Go to one of the login pages and press the "Lost your password?" link. This page will ask you a few questions about your account and send the membership information to the same address it was created against. If your email address has changed send an email to us at so that we can update your account information and have the information sent to you.


 

Getting around MWSports.com

 
The MWSports.com site has been setup so that the navigation links on the right side of the window are on every page. If you ever feel lost or can't find out where to go next use the buttons on the right. They will guide you back to a more familiar surrounding.

The Midwest Sports Schedules' logos on the top of the window will always take you back to the 'Home' page. This is our way of providing a friendly link to get back to the starting point.

The membership toolbar is another good way to get to familiar surroundings or jump to a new event listing style. We've set up the member tools so that they all display the member toolbar to make moving around the site a little more convenient.
