Jack Perconte recommends teamsnap
Sometimes, I think I came along too soon with my baseball career. With all the strength training and video analysis available to players today, maybe I would have have had a better opportunity to have reached my potential. I’ll never know. What I do know, is that my time coaching my son’s team would have been a lot smoother with today’s available coaching tools. I used to run ragged trying to keep up with all the responsibilities coaches have when coaching a team. It seemed like the last thing I had time for was doing what I set out to do – teach the game. But now, look what is possible – teamsnap to the rescue.
Talk about a time saver for coaches this app does it all, leaving the coaches with time to do the thing they set out to do – help kids develop a love of the sport.
Teamsnap is for coaches who are tired of:
1. Fumbling through their emails and phones to find contact information for their team.
2. Realizing they over scheduled games and have two teams show up to play them.
3. Hearing that team member or their parents did not get the game change communication.
4. Not knowing a player was unable to attend tonight’ game because the message didn’t get through to them.
5. Can’t remember which family has paid their fees and which have not.
And many more features like live updates and league features. It makes the coaching life easier. Coaches should check it out; it’s a snap for their team. Get yourself and your team organized with teamsnap, it will be well worth it. The guys over there like Ken McDonald and Kyle Massa are real cool team snappers. As mentioned, I wish it was around back in the day. Oh well. The only possible issue is that teamsnap becomes so efficient it manages the games for you, too – you may be out of a job soon. Ha
