Renton, Wash. – The Washington Interscholastic Athletic Association (WIAA) announced a multi-year partnership on Tuesday with Wanamaker Corporation, creator of the WIAA Golf app and iWanamaker golf event management software. The WIAA Golf app powered by iWanamaker is a robust and scalable golf event management platform designed specifically for high school golf. The partnership makes iWanamaker and the WIAA Golf app the official online event management, player rosters, live scoring, and rankings hub for WIAA Golf. The iWanamaker platform will be the official event management software for all WIAA State Championships and is highly recommended for regular season events and state-tournament qualifying. The agreement begins with the upcoming 2023-2024 WIAA Golf season.
Through its proven Golf Tournament Management Platform (iWanamaker and associated native apps), the platform will also provide athletic directors, coaches and student-athletes free access to schedules, live leaderboards, player scorecards, rankings and more. Spectators will have the opportunity to purchase a ticket to access live content and leaderboards, a portion of which is shared with the WIAA and its member schools.
“We are excited to be in a partnership with Wanamaker Corporation,” WIAA Executive Director Mick Hoffman said. “This will ensure fans, parents, student-athletes and school officials have access to real-time results during regular and postseason events.”
Wanamaker Corporation, the pioneer of online secure scoring for high school golf, has long served multiple high school state associations. The WIAA joins thousands of schools, leagues, and governing bodies already using Wanamaker Corp technologies to streamline golf tournament setup, player registration, secure scoring, rankings, and data management.
“We are excited to partner with the WIAA to bring online secure scoring, accurate golfer rankings and increased scoring integrity to all members of the Washington high school golf community,” Wanamaker Corporation CEO Doyle Heisler said. “Washington has so much passion for golf, and together with the WIAA, we are excited to help increase awareness and grow the sport across the state.”
Coaches training and event manager training sessions will be available in the fall and spring via Zoom. Training session dates/times will be sent directly to Athletic Directors and Coaches.
