A few minutes is all it takes to get up and running with your team. These tips for getting started are aimed at players and their fans (parents, guardians, family members). If you are a coach or team manager, please check out Quick Start Guide for Team Admins

Step Four: Update Your Availability

A few days before each game, you’ll get an email asking if you’re available or not. Make sure to click Yes, No, or Maybe, so your coach has an accurate headcount for the game.

Note: This feature is only available for teams on one of our paid plans . If your team is on the Free plan, the team owner will have to upgrade in order to get it.

Step Five: Check for Volunteer Tasks

Head over to the Assignments tab to view any available assignments for your upcoming schedule events. When you find one you’d like to claim, just check the Sign Up box next to that task!


Step Six: Try TeamSnap Live!

Want to provide live scoring updates, share pictures, and talk about the action with your team in real time? You can use the Team Chat feature to communicate with other members any time, and separate event chats will open up during game and event times for everyone to stay up-to-date in real-time!

It comes with our free mobile apps, so give it a try!
