As part of my first Physical Education Job at Boort District School (The Job I Still Have), I was also responsible for organizing and managing the school’s sports program. This included the annual swimming, track & field and cross country meets, which always proved to be massive undertakings. Not only did we have to arrange the students into events, but being a true country school, we had to get by with limited resources.
One of the most obvious examples of this involved the yearly marking of the schools largest grassed area into a 300m Athletics track complete with lanes, relay exchange stations and more. Not only did this process always seem to happen in the brutal heat, but it involved me dusting out some rusty Pythagoras equations to ensure our track was nothing short of perfection.
Even though the above jobs were time-consuming and stressful, they were truly nothing in comparison to the horrendous software system that our school [and virtually all others] used to manage the carnivals. It was nothing short of terrible. It resulted in hours of mind numbing work that often had to be re-completed after a some sort of software fail. It was the only part of the process I simply couldn’t stand. I had to build something better.
Years passed and I kept thinking about ways in which I would build it and make the process easier for all involved. Eventually, enough was enough and It had to happen. It was time to build Sports Tracker.
