One of the most common types of groups that use AllPlayers.com are sports teams. Ranging from city-sponsored leagues, to select teams, to individual D-league softball teams, AllPlayers.com provides the registration, communication and overall management of teams.
How do we do this?
AllPlayers.com makes it incredibly easy to manage any number or size of sports teams. From creating the team, setting up registration, getting uniform information, sharing calendars and schedules, and communicating any all changes or updates, a team manager needs only site: AllPlayers.com.
Create the Page
First, the manager creates a group page, setting up the team. Through the easy-to-follow settings on the features page, the manager establishes the roles and the registration requirements for each role (player, coach, fan, parent). If the team requires payment, AllPlayers.com handles that process easily as well, and walks the team manager through the entire process.
Registration can be open to anyone, limited by size, limited to certain age groups or open for only a specified time. All these features are customizable for the team’s needs. Once registration setup is complete, the team manager can either invite certain people via email or simply leave a registration button on the team page to allow open registration from there.
Content such as calendar events, photos, files to be distributed and announcements can be done at any time, on an ongoing basis. Many group page administrators choose to add their initial content immediately after setting up the group page. All of this is easily done through the administrator dashboard.
To invite your team members to join, simply click on Invite. This will create an email that you can copy/paste to send to your participants or their guardians. For teams that have children under 13 years of age, their guardians must create an account first, then create an account for their children. This is compliance with child protection laws.
Collect team information such as uniform number selection and sizes, emergency contact or other important data that you need to keep on behalf of your team.
With AllPlayers.com it is extremely convenient to communicate with your participants. By sending a broadcast message, you can immediately reach your entire team through email or text message (they decide how they get your updates when they create their own account). This is extremely beneficial for rain outs, fields changes and other last minute announcements. You can also create basic announcements to be displayed on your group page that may not be as time sensitive.
All members can communicate and share photos in the social format of AllPlayers.com. Leave messages for teammates and coaches, tell them what a great job they did or share thoughts about anything at all!
