Full team management available to every coach for every team

One of the most requested features that youth sports organizations have asked for is text messaging. With real time communication a necessity for keeping athletes and families updated on practices, games, and events, it's no wonder this feature has consistently been at the top of request lists. While Sitebuilder has had built in messaging for some time, it was admittedly not the easiest to use, and lacked text messaging. Well, it did, past tense.

Today, we are excited to share the largest updates to Sitebuilder and Sport Ngin mobile in years. Full team management features for coaches to manage their teams, and a new generation of website themes that make fully responsive websites a reality for every Sport Ngin customer.

 

All new Team Management for every coach

  • Manage your entire roster
  • Send messages via email or true text messaging
  • Get availability through RSVPs
  • Update your team schedule with meetings, practices, and games
  • Finalize and share game results
  • Add photos, videos, and posts
  • Full moderation
  • Manage from your computer or Sport Ngin mobile app
  • No extra fees for coaches!

Make updates on the web or on your smartphone

Every organization who has a Sitebuilder website, can enable these team management features for all of their coaches by simply adding a team page on their website. Once added, include your coach and manager on the roster and they are all set. 

It doesn't matter how many teams you have, these features are included. With every team using the same app, coaches, families, and athletes will all be familiar with the same tools each year.

Best of all, coaches aren't forced to pay $8-$10 a month for the things they need like text messaging or availability tracking.

Families stay connected

Keeping track of where to be can be difficult, and showing up at the wrong place or at the wrong time is the worst. Sport Ngin mobile makes it easy for parents to follow all of the schedules for their household, in one place.

Additionally, each parent sets their communication preferences so they can get messages via email or text messaging. Now, Sport Ngin mobile is not only the most powerful app for staying connected to youth sports teams, but it's also the most convenient.
