As a coach, you can probably list the annoying, yet important, tasks you have to perform in an effort to run your team efficiently. Here are six you don’t have to struggle through anymore.
Time is tight on road trips and finding the right place to eat is not always easy. But collecting meal orders from the entire team is even harder. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could easily send out a menu and an order form to the whole team and then send it to the restaurant of your choice ahead of time. With DRIVN, you can send the menu and order form as an attachment. Then just download the information and place the order.
Coaching staffs are constantly re-inventing the way they gather the information they need to order uniforms and other equipment. Collecting sizes is at the top of the list. DRIVN’s trackers take care of that. Just place a form in DRIVN and tell your players to fill it out. Then download the data into an Excel chart.
There is nothing worse for a coach than expecting to have 18 players at training and only 12 show up. That practice plan you spent all that time on won’t work anymore. Finding out ahead of time how many players are going to be at training would be very helpful. A quick message sent to the entire team asking for attendance updates is simple with DRIVN’s communication features.
You can’t, of course, plan ahead for weather. But you can easily make changes to practice location and times and make sure everyone gets the message. Any change to your team’s schedule can be communicated by making one change to the DRIVN calendar. Everyone’s phone buzzes with the update.
All Those Documents
Your school or club undoubtedly has a pile of documents you need to distribute to your players – releases, handbooks, rules, policies. And you probably have a few team-specific documents your players need. With DRIVN, you can just upload them to the wiki (or document storage features) and all your players and parents can have them all in one place.
Finding out about schedule conflicts when it’s too late to do anything about it is frustrating. DRIVN’s calendar allows your schedule and your players’ schedule to exist together. You no longer have to contact your entire team and tell them to make a change. One change and everyone’s calendar is current.
