Announcement: Assignments Free for US Teams
We are proud to announce the assignments feature is now free for all TeamSnap users in the United States! As part of TeamSnap’s partnership with Gatorade, all teams in the U.S. can enjoy the benefits of our easy-to-use, time-saving assignment tracker.
What is Assignments?
Whether it’s remembering Gatorade or keeping score, your volunteers need to know what their task is for the day. Assignments enable coaches and team managers to assign tasks to parents and players, so everyone comes prepared for the next game or practice.
Quickly assign who’s bringing the team fuel with Gatorade and snacks, and coordinate tasks and volunteer shifts. If you’re a parent or player, you can volunteer for any of these tasks.
Tip: Look for Assignments in your event details within the TeamSnap mobile or web app.
Benefits of Assignments
Stay on top of volunteers, tasks, and signups.
“I was at an event and needed to contact a volunteer who hadn’t arrived. I went to the assignment tab, quickly found the volunteer I needed, then I went to the team roster and contacted them and their parents to find out what was happening. This has made life so much easier. We used to use Excel docs, Google Forms, Email, and SignUp.com all to coordinate our activities. This has really brought everything under the same roof.”
Brian Jones, Harding Academy Robots program director
