Quick Start Guide for Team Admins

Welcome to TeamSnap! It’ll just take a few minutes to get you up and running with your team. If you are a player or parent, please check out Quick Start Guide for Members and Fans.

While it’s perfectly radical to set your team up on your mobile device, we recommend getting started on our web app, then managing the team on mobile afterward. But you do you.

Step One: Set Up Your Team 

Note: This step is for team owners only. Skip to the next step if this doesn't apply to you.
  1. Enter team information
    1. Enter info such as your team name, your sport, your location and more.
  2. Add roster
    1. Next, you’ll see this spiffy screen:
    2. Enter your players’ names and preferred emails in the appropriate boxes. When you’re ready, scroll down to the bottom and make sure that the box next to Send invitations to join team is checked.
    3. If you’ve got all your roster members entered, click the blue button labeled Save and Continue in the bottom right-hand corner. Your team invitation will be sent to the email addresses you entered.
    4. Pro Tip: If you don’t want to enter player info manually, you can skip this step and then import your roster from a file at a later time.
  3. Invite additional coaches and team parents
    1. The next thing you’ll see is a little pop-up box:
    2. Here’s your chance to recruit some assistance. Enter the name and email address of someone who’s helping with administrative tasks, such as adding events to the schedule or inviting more players to the team. When you’re ready, click Send Invite. You’ll be able to add even more helpers later on.
  4. Schedule your first game 
    1. Here you’ll want to enter information for your first game, including the field name, location, date, time and more.
    2.  Alternatively, you can skip this step and import your schedule from a file at a later time.
    3. Tip: If you enter a location address, your players will get directions to the field from their favorite mobile GPS app. We highly recommend it!
    4. If you’re all set, click Save and Continue to proceed.
  5. Select team settings
    1. Just check off all the relevant information, select the team age group and add any other information that applies.
  6. Upload a team logo
    1. Just click that little Choose File button, select a file from your computer and upload. For best results, we recommend choosing a PNG file.
  7. Get Acquainted with TeamSnap!
    1. Welcome to your new team! Click Take me to my Team! and feel free to explore the app and see all the cool things you can do.

Step Two: Accept Your Invitation

Note: This step is for non-owner team admins only. Skip to the next step if this doesn't apply to you.

  1. Go to your email and find the TeamSnap invitation from your team owner
  2. Click the blue Join Now! button
    1. If you’ve been invited but can’t find the invitation email, click here and we’ll help you track it down.
  3. Create a password
    1. If you have an existing TeamSnap account under a different email address, click Switch Account to log into the existing account
  4. Click Continue
  5. Select Yes or No for whether you are accepting for yourself or on behalf of someone else
    1. If No, enter your name and relationship to the player
  6. Click Continue
  7. Enter your mobile number and select your provider if you'd like to receive team alerts to your mobile device
    1. Tip: If you don’t want to share your number with teammates, check the box next to “Make Private.” Coaches and team managers will be able to see phone numbers even if this box is checked.
  8. Click Continue
  9. Select Yes or No for adding family member access to your account
    1. If Yes, complete the remaining fields for family member information
  10. Click Continue
  11. Click Take Me to my Team! and you are all set
