Founded in 2009, TeamSnap helps sport teams and groups in managing and organizing their activities. TeamSnap (TeamSnap) provides two options: one is the TeamSnap online management service and mobile app and the other is its website feature which helps in managing your club’s website.
TeamSnap initially started as a tool for organization of adult sport teams but over the years has evolved as an ideal tool for youth sport leagues. TeamSnap’s over 9 million customers are mainly based in North America but the company is slowly expanding internationally too.
Currently, the two most popular sports using TeamSnap are soccer and hockey. Plus there are other sports teams too using TeamSnap including, baseball, basketball, gymnastics, dragon boat racing, paintball, volleyball, to name a few. TeamSnap caters to groups as well such as book clubs, corporate teams, fraternities and other such groups. Get more information here.
The TeamSnap’s online management service and its mobile app provides you with many features that basically allows you to work hassle free. For coaches/managers, it makes communication very easy. For example, if there is a last minute change in the practice location they can send a message or email team members about it. Coaches can also find out if they have enough players for an upcoming game.
For treasurers/managers, they can keep a tab on all payment records. For a manager managing multiple teams, all he/she has to do is get everyone on TeamSnap and communicate with them through it.
For parents too, TeamSnap’s service/app is very handy. They can check about practice schedule, games schedule, and their child (children) cannot be left out of the tournament because payment was not made on time. Communicating with managers/coaches is easier for the parents, especially for any last minute changes.
Another useful feature is coordinating before the game: where to meet, what time to meet, carpooling needed – all this can be done through TeamSnap application. And this application also acts as a useful reminder about what jersey to wear for your next game!
TeamSnap’s website feature allows you to maintain your club’s website which looks good on any device be it laptop, tablet or mobile phone. It is very easy to build and manage the website with TeamSnap. Get access to beautiful templates for the look of your website through TeamSnap which runs on WordPress (this allows MS Word style formatting). Its user friendly feature allows you access to 30 page templates – customize the pages based on your team colors. No complicated coding required and adding articles, pictures, media files, and links to other websites is very easy.
All the needs of sport leagues/clubs can be taken care of through this website: team registrations, waiver forms, team roster, managing guest players, news, information, display sponsors and tournament information including results, points table, pictures, all this can be done through TeamSnap website feature and you can customize your domain name as well.
TeamSnap has a “human” approach rather than “corporate” approach and this resonates with people and has contributed to the fast growth of the organization. With about two-thirds children as users, TeamSnap ensures that its product is designed to cater to this group, for example, if the kids parents are divorced, it allows for shared access feature.
You can choose one of the plans from the many that TeamSnap offers. You can start with a free trial and proceed to paid subscription if it works for you.
With its customer base growing, TeamSnap may also explore new forms of revenue opportunities such as targeted advertising. This is something though for future exploration.
At present TeamSnap uses its differentiation factors like usability, customer focus/human approach and bottom-up approach (from teams to leagues/clubs) to stay ahead in the competition. Its main focus is still on teams: coaches, managers, players and parents.
