Managing a sports club or league is not easy. Endless email chains, websites to manage, checks to bring to the bank, waiting on checks that still haven’t come in...it’s a lot for one person to deal with.
But you’re not alone out there. We know how much time and energy it takes to organize a club, league or organization. That’s why we compiled these tips to help you save time (and your sanity) during the season.
Go Paperless with Registration
For starters, we have nothing against paper. For some organizations, it works just fine. Problem is, paper forms can get lost, destroyed, mixed in with other forms or mistakenly used for origami.
Online registration eliminates those issues. With it, you can keep everything under one umbrella. Additionally, items like checks, personal information, health waivers and important documents can all be completed and sent online far faster than it would take to collect papers. As an extra bonus, your risk of paper cuts is greatly reduced.
Design Your Own Website
A professional-looking website is an excellent tool for attracting new players and keeping everyone in your club or league up to date. Plus, they make organizing sign-ups and displaying news, announcements, scores and standings much easier.
But here’s the issue with websites: If you need to learn how to code in order to design them, they can be more trouble than they’re worth. So if you’re interested in building a website for your club, league or organization, we recommend a solution that doesn’t require a degree to use.
Streamline Your Communication
Even if you’re only managing one team, staying in touch can be difficult. So if you’re managing something like 15 teams, it follows that communication could become 15 times more difficult.
The good news is, there’s lots of technology out there to make your life easier. For example, club and league management software allows you to communicate with everyone from your phone or desktop. That way you don’t need to sift through email contacts or track down phone numbers. It’s custom built to help you manage your club, league or organization.
All in all, keeping on top of your club or league is no easy task. But with these tips to back you up, we hope things get a little easier.
