Where should we park? Where is field Number 2? I live just east of the highway, what district does that put me in? 

These types of questions may be common for volunteers in youth sports organizations but can be solved by one easy solution ... a detailed map.

Using Google Maps with the Code Element Page Element on Sport Ngin, a map can be added to any page, any email, or in any registration session. If you build out templates, you will only have to add a map once, then you can reuse the template as many times as you would like.

With Google Maps you can draw lines that divide areas or drop markers in to a detailed area.

Step 1: Click Here and select Create a New Map

Step 2: Use the tool to add markers (1) and draw lines (2)

Step 9: Copy the iFrame code

Step 10: Navigate to where you want to place the map on your Sport Ngin site
