While Jacob has never been active in sports, he’s constantly been engaged in at least one activity outside the home since he was about five. First it was karate, then Cub Scouts and recently, chorus. Through each activity, I’ve run into many issues where I ended up sitting outside an empty facility because I never got a message about a missed meeting. I’ve also missed really fun events because I didn’t get the “memo.”
The biggest problem with all of these activities: an unreliable system of communication. Whether it’s a phone tree or an email blast, for one reason or another, important messages weren’t reaching the right person in time. One of those times left my son standing outside at our rather unsafe bus stop for an hour by himself because I didn’t get a notice that chorus was canceled. I was livid.

TeamSnap offers a solution to the age-old problem of trying to reach all team members in an organized and timely manner. This cool app and website gives you a single spot to track EVERYTHING from who paid their dues to who’s bringing refreshments to the next practice. Setting up an event is super easy:
Obviously, that’s not my real address, but you get the idea. Everything about TeamSnap is super intuitive. The app and website guides you through every step. No guesswork on your part. Now, say you have to cancel the event. Simply sent a text alert to everyone to alert as many people as possible that way.
Then go into your event and mark it as canceled on the dashboard. Just edit the event and click “show as canceled.” You can also opt to send emails, so you cover all your bases. The great thing is, you can do this all from TeamSnap, so you’re not opening up a thousand different programs or apps to get the message out.
TeamSnap has so many more features than just letting you schedule events and cancel them. As mentioned above, you can use it to keep track of who paid their dues and who is up for bringing snacks to practice. You can also use it as a complete contact database for all your members and for keeping track of tools or other items your team needs.
It even shows the weather in your area! Whoa! Um, I had NO idea that we were supposed to get 7-10 inches of snow this weekend. I was just being silly when I put that text alert about the snow. Oh no! I guess I better stock up tonight! Now I love TeamSnap even more, I would have been caught by surprise if not for that, since I haven’t checked the weather lately!
Seriously, though, this is such a fantastic app for anyone who participates in any group activity. It doesn’t have to be a sport! It doesn’t even have to be for kids! Even if it’s a book club, you’ll find TeamSnap useful. I bet it would be useful for party planning too. The uses are limitless.
