Nicolette Larson was loading the dishwasher with her husband, Kevin, and telling him about the first
meeting of the Manchester United Tournament Organizing Committee. Nicolette, a self-confessed
soccer mom, had been elected tournament director and was responsible for organizing the club’s first
summer tournament.
Manchester United Soccer Club (MUSC) located in Manchester, New Hampshire, was formed in 1992 as
a way of bringing recreational players to a higher level of competition and preparing them for the State
Olympic Development Program and/or high school teams. The club currently has 24 boys and girls
(ranging in age from under 9 to 16) on teams affiliated with the Hampshire Soccer Association and the
Granite State Girls Soccer League. The club’s board of directors decided in the fall to sponsor a summer
invitational soccer tournament to generate revenue. Given the boom in youth soccer, hosting summer
tournaments has become a popular method for raising funds. MUSC teams regularly compete in three
to four tournaments each summer at different locales in New England. These tournaments have been
reported to generate between $50,000 and $70,000 for the host club.
MUSC needs additional revenue to refurbish and expand the number of soccer fields at the Rock
Rimmon soccer complex. Funds would also be used to augment the club’s scholarship program, which
provides financial aid to players who cannot afford the $450 annual club dues.
Nicolette gave her husband a blow-by-blow account of what transpired during the first tournament
committee meeting that night. She started the meeting by having everyone introduce themselves and
by proclaiming how excited she was that the club was going to sponsor its own tournament. She then
suggested that the committee brainstorm what needed to be done to pull off the event; she would
record their ideas on a flipchart.
What emerged was a free-for-all of ideas and suggestions. One member immediately stressed the
importance of having qualified referees and spent several minutes describing in detail how his son’s
team was robbed in a poorly officiated championship game. This was followed by other stories of
injustice on the soccer field. Another member suggested that they needed to quickly contact the local
colleges to see if they could use their fields. The committee spent more than 30 minutes talking about
how they should screen teams and how much they should charge as an entry fee. An argument broke
out over whether they should reward the winning teams in each age bracket with medals or trophies.
Many members felt that medals were too cheap, while others thought the trophies would be too
expensive. Someone suggested that they seek local corporate sponsors to help fund the tournament.
The proposed sale of tournament T-shirts and sweatshirts was followed by a general critique of the
different shirts parents had acquired at different tournaments. One member advocated that they recruit
an artist he knew to develop a unique silk-screen design for the tournament. The meeting adjourned 30
minutes late with only half of the members remaining until the end. Nicolette drove home with seven
sheets of ideas and a headache.
As Kevin poured a glass of water for the two aspirin Nicolette was about to take, he tried to comfort her
by saying that organizing this tournament would be a big project not unlike the projects he works on at
his engineering and design firm. He offered to sit down with her the next night and help her plan the
project. He suggested that the first thing they needed to do was to develop a WBS for the project.
