Free Coaching App Simplifies Team Communications and Saves Time

By Harrison Hefele, SportsYou Sales Associate

Coaching a football team can be hectic as well as exhausting. And as a coach, time management has its challenges when fitting in team meals, meetings, film sessions, scouting, practices, and games. Make your life as a coach much more enjoyable and easier to manage with the sportsYou team communications app.

A free communication app, sportsYou is created specifically for the needs of coaches. It gives coaches the ability to privately communicate, schedule and share media with their team. With no character limits and the ability to send one-way messages, sportsYou is a highly versatile communication app for coaches.

Whether on your phone or computer, in minutes you can set up as many teams as you want on sportsYou. You can create private teams or groups for the varsity, junior varsity, and freshmen programs. You can also take it a step further to share specific information to only your defense, offense, special teams and so on.

Rodney Webb, the varsity football coach at Rockwall High School and president of the Texas High School Coaches Association, has this to say: “I used sportsYou to communicate with and manage my team this season. The benefits were that everyone was on the same page, communications were easier and better than ever, and everyone saved significant time. I highly recommend that all coaches and sports organizations use the sportsYou app and website. In addition, it is easy-to-use and free.”

In addition to easy-to-use instant messaging, sportsYou allows coaches to display a calendar for their athletes and family members to see games, practices and events. No more questions and confusion on schedules as everyone knows date, time, location – and gets notifications on changes immediately through sportsYou.

Using sportsYou provides coaches with the unique ability to increase accountability. As an administrator of the team, you can see who has viewed your posts and who has not. You can set calendar reminders so that team members are notified before games and events. These features help coaches emphasize the importance of responsibility.

Stephanie Bartkus, who coaches soccer, basketball, and lacrosse at Seaford High School (NY), said: “As a coach in three seasons, using the SportsYou app has made my life so much easier. I love being able to change or add to my calendar and have the players see an alert. It’s also great to have it communicated to me when someone will be late or if they have a question without me having to give out my phone number. This is so much more efficient than using Remind and constantly reprinting a calendar!”

Download the easy-to-use sportsYou app and save yourself countless hours of tedious managerial work – and have more time to coach.
