Five game changing Sport Ngin messaging features

By Jim Dahline, 08/11/15, 5:45PM CDT


Our new messaging is more than just notifications. Here are five ways it's the best messaging system for teams.

Game-changing Team Management for Coaches & Managers

We've completely changed the way that coaches and team managers run their teams. With our all new Team Center, and expanded team management features on Sport Ngin and in the Sport Ngin mobile app, keeping teams connected is not only easy but free for coaches and team managers. 

Message Inbox

We have built a robust messaging system on the Sport Ngin platform. One of the biggest benefits (and one rarely seen out there) is a message inbox. Since messages are sent through the platform, they are conveniently stored in your message inbox so you can read and respond when it works best.

True SMS Notifications

Our text notifications are sent out via true SMS. Most other apps use carrier-based email texting, which is potentially unreliable and an inferior way to send texts. When you need to communicate, and communicate fast, text notifications using true SMS are the best way, period.

No Fees for Coaches or Managers

We believe that coaches and managers, who are already volunteering their time, should get the best tools to manage their teams without having to volunteer their money as well. No matter how many teams are in your organization, every coach and manager gets access to full team management at no cost.


Everyone Can Message

When you're new in town or to the team, and you don't have everyone's phone number or email address, contacting other parents and the manager can be a challenge. However, the Sport Ngin mobile app has everyone on your team available to message so that everyone can stay connected.


Notification Preferences

Messages are sent out via email and through the mobile app. However, team members can select how they'd like to be notified of new messages, either via email or text notifications. This ensures they are alerted to what's going on using the method that works best for them.


All of these new team management features will be available on September 1, 2015.
