Teamo Talks: Saving Time Running A Small Netball Club
About Shelfield Sharks Netball Club
Shelfield Sharks Netball Club have 2 teams that both play in the Hednesford Netball Fun League and are currently ranked 3rd and 10th. They have over 30 players and continue to field full team sheets every week.
For Shelfield Sharks NC, ensuring that all club members could access key information and communicate via one platform was vital. The club were also using Sportplan, which enabled coaches to plan their training sessions with those who confirmed their availability.
I wanted an app that could be used by the whole club with added functionality to WhatsApp which we were previously using and teamo had all the required features!
Feature Focus: Availability
One of the main focuses that Shelfield Sharks Netball Club use teamo for is the calendar feature. The calendar allows team managers to use a variety of features - sending reminders, confirming availability and team selection to name a few.
The feature I have found most useful is the calendar. Players know exactly when their matches are with times, you can send reminders, confirm availability, team selection and records of scores
I use teamo to input all fixtures, training and matches, member database, request player availability, selecting squads, registration forms, updating scores, uploading session plans and videos, team chats and posting club information.
Time is precious
The hours spent on admin can really add up when organising a large sports club in your spare time. Therefore, we have made it our mission to help our clubs out and make the lives of volunteers easier!
Before teamo, we had different WhatsApp groups for different teams, constant reminders being sent and ignored, chasing up players. Now all information is collated and an audit trail is available
What the members think
It is always good to get your players onboard and keep everyone in the loop with changes and important information etc.
The players and members think it's amazing. Very user friendly and they all feel very much a part of the club and know exactly what's happening and when. I would definitely recommend Teamo. I am starting a B2N netball session soon and will set up Teamo to share information and keep records, training dates etc.
