Blackberry 10 Users Can Now Get TeamSnap on Their Devices
(Apr 1st, 2014)
Dance, Blackberry 10 users! TeamSnap can now run on your device.
OK, OK, so we’re not Blackberry 10 native yet, but thanks to some shenanigans in the latest Blackberry OS you can easily run our outstanding Android app on your Blackberry 10 device and enjoy all the TeamSnap goodness at the field, rink or court.
Take a Look at What’s New on Android
(Nov 1st, 2013)
It’s been an awesome October for our mobile users, as we’ve been hard at work adding features and fixing bugs for our growing legion of customers who use Android devices. If you have Auto Update set on your device, you should already be using the latest version of TeamSnap for Android right now (version 2.0.18). If you don’t have updates turned on, get thee to your device and download the latest.
Uniform Support Now Available
(Oct 30th, 2013)
As a beer-league ice hockey player and assistant coach (and team organizer) for my daughters’ soccer teams, I’m not just TeamSnap’s CTO – I’m also a frequent TeamSnap user. So I’m thrilled to announce that we’re adding a new feature to TeamSnap that will make my life much easier, and hopefully yours as well – the ability to specify uniforms for games.
New Release: TeamSnap 2.3.1 for iOS Makes Photo Uploading Sleeker
(Oct 2nd, 2013)
Today we’re excited to announce TeamSnap Mobile 2.3.1 for iOS, a free download or update through the App Store. If you use TeamSnap on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, we highly recommend you install this version. (And if you’re on iOS 7 with auto-update turned on, you may magically already have it.)

TeamSnap for iOS 2.0.3 released, adds file support and app integration
(Nov 28th, 2012)
The good news on our mobile apps just keeps coming this week, as version 2.0.3 of our iOS app has been released to Apple’s App Store!
There are a number of bug fixes and performance improvements in this version, but one thing we’d like to bring to your attention involves your team file folders, and new things you can do with files and photos.
TeamSnap Mobile for Android 2.0 is Rolling!
(Nov 26th, 2012)
The release of TeamSnap mobile for iOS was a huge hit, making it possible for more and more of our customers to interact with TeamSnap exclusively via their mobile device. Today we’re happy to complete the other half of the equation with the release of TeamSnap mobile for Android version 2.0. If you use TeamSnap, we think you’ll love this release, which gives every online team manager and coach much more power to manage their team right from the game or practice.
The New TeamSnap 2.0 iPhone App is Available — and Awesome!
(Oct 3rd, 2012)
Over half of our traffic comes from mobile devices, and a significant number of our users interact with TeamSnap almost exclusively from their phones or tablets, so today we’re thrilled to take the wraps off of version 2.0 of our iOS app for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Although we’ve added some great things to the app over the last few months, this release gives team managers and coaches much more power to manage their team right from the game or practice.
Introducing Facebook Photo and Album Sharing
(Aug 21st, 2012)
We know you love using TeamSnap to upload photos from your games. But sometimes you get that great shot or an amazing album and want to show it to your all of your friends and relatives. We’ve made that easier by introducing Facebook sharing for TeamSnap photos and albums.
Introducing Public Sites for Your League or Club
(Jun 6th, 2012)
If you run a league, club or other sports organization, your website is one of the most important tools for presenting a professional image and providing information to players, coaches and parents. Unfortunately, few organizations have the time or resources to develop and manage comprehensive, professional team websites.
What Ever Happened to TeamLink?
(May 14th, 2012)
If you’re one of our early club, league and association customers — or just plain observant — you may have noticed that we’re no longer using “TeamLink” to describe our solution for multi-team organizations.
New: Track Availability Per Game or Event
(Apr 3rd, 2012)
Availability tracking has always been one of TeamSnap’s most popular features, and in the last year we’ve rolled out improvements like Availability notes and the ability to set availability by email. Today we’re excited to announce another enhancement to Availability: the ability to turn availability tracking on or off for individual games or events.
TeamSnap for Android is Here!
(Feb 15th, 2012)
Pardon the exclamation marks, but we’re very excited today to announce the first beta release of TeamSnap Mobile for Android! It’s available right now from the Android Market and it’s free.
Introducing Conversation Mode for Emails
(Feb 9th, 2012)
This feature has been put on hiatus. Learn more: http://blog.teamsnap.com/announcements/conversation-mode-is-going-on-hiatus/
Sometimes when sending email to the team you simply need to broadcast information:
“The game has been changed to 7:15 p.m.”
At other times, you’re looking for individual feedback:
Facebook Score Posting Now Includes Pages
(Feb 3rd, 2012)
Last week we announced the ability to automatically post your team’s scores to your Facebook wall (or “Timeline,” as the cool kids are calling it these days). Today we’ve expanded this function so you can post to your team’s Facebook page.
Facebook Score Posting is Here – Share Your Victories!
(Jan 30th, 2012)
Update: Now includes posting to Facebook pages as well!
Whether you play for fun or for glory, one of the joys of sports is sharing your victories and defeats with friends, family and fans. Now we’ve made that easier, with automatic score posting to Facebook. Simply head over to the Preferences tab and you can set up TeamSnap to automatically post your teams’s game results right to your Facebook Timeline or your team’s Facebook page.
Friday Feature Roundup: Tweaks Galore!
(Jan 27th, 2012)
This week’s new feature round-up involves tweaks and refinements to a few areas in the application based on customer feedback. Here’s what new:
Managers can now turn on player email reminders for games or events separately
New Feature Round-Up: Goodies Galore!
(Jan 17th, 2012)
Get out the lasso! We’re rounding up some of the new features and changes we’ve made within TeamSnap in the last month. Read on:
Full TeamSnap Calendar
We know that a lot of people (and especially families) have multiple teams within their TeamSnap accounts, so now at the bottom of the My Teams page you’ll not only see a list of upcoming events for all of your teams, but also a new button labeled “Go to My Full Schedule” that will take you to a calendar showing you all the games and events for all of your teams.
New Availability Features and More!
(Nov 18th, 2011)
You may have noticed a bunch of new features we rolled out in the last week or so, all based on customer requests. We’re super excited to have you try them out. Here’s a rundown of what’s new in our sports team management software.
What’s New at TeamSnap
(Sep 30th, 2011)
Our dev team has been hard at work this month, and while we have a few things coming up that we’re not quite ready to announce, we did want to give a quick update on a few enhancements and changes that you may not have noticed.
Introducing Your All-New My Teams (and Leagues) Page
(Aug 12th, 2011)
Much like the Winchester Mystery House, TeamSnap’s My Teams page has seen more and more features and elements bolted onto its creaky foundation over the years. What was once envisioned as a quick pit stop on the way to your team was groaning under the weight of features like season archiving, multi-roster and leagues. So today we’re pleased to roll out the all-new My Teams (and Leagues) page. You’ll see it the next time you log into TeamSnap.
New Features: Set Availability From Email, Background Archiving
(Aug 5th, 2011)
We have a couple of new features to announce today – one oft-requested and the other something new that should make things a little easier when it’s time for your next season.
League Level Rosters on TeamSnap’s League and Club Solution
(May 31st, 2011)
We just released some new functionality for TeamSnap for Leagues and Clubs rosters. To name a few of the helpful changes for league and club commissioners, now you can:
- View a complete listing of all members in the league, including commissioners
Folder for Photos and Files … Finally!
(Apr 18th, 2011)
Oh boy are we excited to roll out our newest feature upgrade today. It’s the all-new team Photos and Files section, and it addresses a few of the top feature requests here at TeamSnap. Here’s what’s new:
Two New Features for Tuesday
(Mar 15th, 2011)
We just rolled out two small feature tweaks, based on long-standing customer requests:
Choose Your Outgoing Email Address
When sending email from the Messages tab, you can now specific which email address the messages is coming from (if you have more than one email address entered into the roster). Look for the handy-dandy pop-up menu when on the Send Email page.
Introducing Your Team Email Address
(Feb 7th, 2011)
Today we’re very excited to introduce a new feature that will make it even easier to keep in touch with the team: Your Team Email Address. Now you can send email to the entire team right from your email program, without even needing to log into TeamSnap.
The All-New Payments Area is Here!
(Feb 2nd, 2011)
We’ve just rolled out a huge upgrade to the Payments tab, and we couldn’t be more excited. After many months of work — and after listening to years worth of customer requests — this is not just a minor tweak but a complete re-imagination of team payments.
The Curious Case of the New Tracking Tab
(Jan 31st, 2011)
You may have noticed a new tab at the top of the page when you opened TeamSnap today. It’s a feature called “Tracking,” which lets you set up an arbitrary number of items to track with checkboxes. For instance, you could track who has turned in their insurance forms, taken a turn washing the jerseys or returned a required permission slip.
New Feature: Auto-Notifications for Game/Event Changes
(Dec 3rd, 2010)
Changes are inevitable when you’re managing a team. The time changes … the field changes …. or sometimes the game or practice gets canceled altogether. Now there’s an even easier way to let your team know when something has changed.
TeamSnap for iPhone/iPod/iPad Version 1.1 Now Available
(Dec 1st, 2010)
We’ve just rolled out the latest version of the TeamSnap iPhone app. Upgrade today, or if you haven’t tried the app, download it today — it’s FREE!
Here’s what’s new:
Full Messaging Capabilities – Now you can send and read emails and SMS texts, or post on your team message board, all through the app. Need to fire off an email or a text to the entire team? You can do it in a snap with the app.
New Feature: Availability Sorting Options
(Nov 24th, 2010)
When you look at a game’s detail page (or receive a Manager email with player Availability updates), you see a list of all the players who have marked themselves as available for that game (or event). We’ve now added a “Sorting” option under Availability Preferences so you can define the order in which your team wants those available players listed. Your options are:
Email Attachments are Here!
(Nov 4th, 2010)
You asked for it, and now it’s here. Today we’re excited to roll out email attachments. Now you can attach as many files as you like to your team emails that you send through the Messages tab. Need to get that important registration form, permission slip or funny photo into your teammates’ hands? It’s as easy as attach and send!
Now TeamSnap Can Remember You
(Nov 1st, 2010)
Thanks to some nifty re-architecture, we’ve now added the option for TeamSnap to remember your login between sessions. If you don’t want to be logged out when you quit your browser, simply check the “Keep me logged in on this computer” box and the next time you come back you’ll still be logged in to TeamSnap.
If you’re working on a public computer, or if you share your computer with multiple people in your family, you probably don’t want to check that box.
Better Overtime and Shootout/Penalty Kicks Support for Hockey and Soccer
(Oct 25th, 2010)
We’ve just rolled out a more complete way of entering scores for hockey and soccer, and we think you’re going to like it. Here’s the scoop:
When entering the score of a game, you can now indicate that the game went into overtime, and/or was decided by a shootout (hockey) or penalty kicks (soccer). You can also enter the result of the shootout or penalty kicks.
“I Just Died and Went To Heaven”
(Oct 8th, 2010)
Every once in a while we receive a customer message that brings a smile to our faces and a glow to the whole team. The quote above is from a message that continued:
The TeamSnap iPhone App Has Arrived!
(Sep 28th, 2010)
We are excited to announce that the new TeamSnap iPhone App is now available for free in the Apple App Store. This means that you can bring TeamSnap right to the field and get important information about your team, roster, schedule, and messages when you’re on the go or at the game.
New Thumbnail Cropping Tool
(Sep 1st, 2010)
We’re excited today to roll out a new tool that makes it much easier to create the small thumbnail photo that appears next to your name on many of the TeamSnap pages.
Introducing the All-New Messages Tab
(Jul 21st, 2010)
Today we’re excited to announce our revamped TeamSnap Messages tab. We’ve moved some things around and added some much-requested features. We think it’s a whole lot better.
First off, we found out that a lot of users didn’t know you could email or SMS text your team, because those buttons were under the Roster tab. So we’ve consolidated all of the communication functions under the Messages area. Now there are three buttons that let you choose between sending emails, sending SMS texts and posting messages to the message board. It’s all in one place.
New Ways to Share on Facebook
(Jun 30th, 2010)
You may have noticed that we’ve added some “Share on Facebook” buttons to the site. If you have Public Access turned on for your team site you can share links directly to your public site, and if you’ve enabled Public Access for your photos you can directly share a link to photos on Facebook.
New in the Marketplace: Coaching Videos from PlaySportsTV
(Apr 22nd, 2010)
We’re excited to introduce a new partner in the TeamSnap Marketplace. PlaySportsTV offers award-winning coaching, training and skills videos that you can purchase and watch online. One low price gets you access to multiple products and hundreds of drills and tips for the whole season.
Feature Tweak: Set Cutoff for Event Availability
(Apr 22nd, 2010)
Managers have always been able to set a cutoff time after which players can’t change their Availability for games. But until now, the same wasn’t true for events. We’re pleased to announce that we’ve brought cutoff times to events as well.
Introducing Shared Access for Families
(Apr 9th, 2010)
We’re very excited to announce our newest feature — Shared Access. Now you can easily set up multiple login accounts so that (for example) two parents can each control their child’s information without having to share a username and password. Here’s how it works:
New Feature: Automatic Result Prediction
(Apr 1st, 2010)
Today we’re pleased to roll out a new feature that we think will make TeamSnap even more valuable for all of our teams: Automatic Result Prediction. Simply put, this feature uses artificial intelligence to predict and automatically enter the scores of your games as they occur. Now you no longer have to go into TeamSnap after the game to enter the score … TeamSnap accurately predicts and enters the score as soon as the game is completed.
New Payments State: Not Owed
(Mar 29th, 2010)
For a long time there have only been two “states” available for payments on the Payments pages — paid (green checkmark) and not paid (blank). But you told us that there were some people who didn’t owe payments at all, so you were looking for a “does not owe anything” state.
New! Choose Your Own Flag Color
(Mar 15th, 2010)
A fun and useful new feature for all users … choose your own flag color!
You know those little flags next to your games (orange) and events (blue)? Well those are still your default colors, but now you have a bevy of flag icons to choose from. This is especially useful for highlighting special events, playoffs, pre-season games or anything where you’d like a different indicator on the schedule.
Wow! Totally Improved Contact Handling, For Youth Teams and Everyone
(Mar 2nd, 2010)
We’ve done a massive overhaul of how TeamSnap handles email addresses, phone numbers and additional contacts on the Roster. It’s sophisticated, flexible and powerful and we think you’re going to love it. It eliminates some of the workarounds that youth teams have had to make to get multiple parents listed with their kids, and for anyone with extra email addresses, phone numbers or cell phones it’s going to make your TeamSnap experience better too.
Introducing Our New Multi-File Uploader
(Feb 12th, 2010)
You asked for a faster way to upload big batches of team photos, and now it’s here: the TeamSnap multi-file uploader. This new tool makes it a snap to upload entire batches of photos at once. And we’ve sweetened it with a little bit of AJAX goodness so you actually see the thumbnails appear on the page as the upload is occuring.
A Few Tweaks to Public Access
(Feb 8th, 2010)
Response to the new Public Access feature has been great, but we’re still make a few adjustments here and there based on your feedback. Two changes we just launched:
- Separate preferences for showing/hiding Photos and Files. You told us that you sometimes wanted to show photos publicly, but not files, or vice-versa, so now they can be controlled separately.
Just Launched: Public Access
(Feb 1st, 2010)
We’ve just rolled out one of our most-requested features: Public Access. In a nutshell, you can now grant your fans, friends and family read-only access to your team pages.
The great thing about Public Access is you have complete control over which information you wish to share. Share it all, share nothing, or pick just the sections you want to make public. Individual players also control what information to share about themselves.
New Referral Program Promotional Tool
(Oct 9th, 2009)
We’ve added a new social media promotional tool for TeamSnap Referral Program participants. You can now easily share a message and your referral link on your Facebook and Twitter pages. Click here to visit the program page and look for the Twitter & Facebook icons under the “Promotional Tools” section (center of page).
Hide Past Refreshments
(Aug 27th, 2009)
Just a quite note to let everyone know that we’ve added a new preference on the Refreshments tab that allows you to hide past games and events. We got some feedback that for long seasons, stuff in the past wasn’t particularly useful to see. So now you can hide and show past events!
Introducing the TeamSnap Referral Program
(Aug 20th, 2009)
Our loyal users have been asking for more tools to spread the word about TeamSnap, so we’re very pleased to introduce the TeamSnap Referral Program. Not only do you get links and banners you can use to tell your friends and fellow players about TeamSnap, but you also earn money for every player who signs up a paid team. And anyone who uses your referral code get 10% for an entire year. It’s a win-win situation.
New Feature: Home page manager message
(Apr 15th, 2009)
We rolled out a small but much-asked-for new feature today: A space on your team home page for a manager message. Now, any team manager can jot a quick message on the team home page for everyone to see. It’s simple to use … managers will see the message box when they log in. If you leave the message blank, players won’t see anything at all. The box just springs into action when you add a message.
New Beta Feature: Text Messaging
(Apr 5th, 2009)
Today we’re introducing a new beta feature: Text Messaging. You can now broadcast SMS text messages to your team through TeamSnap.
You will need to enable this feature if you want to receive messages. In your player profile you’ll find a check box beneath your mobile phone number that enables text messaging and allows you to select your mobile provider.
New Feature: Vonage Integration
(Mar 31st, 2009)
We use Vonage here at TeamSnap, so when we saw all the nice handy contact phone numbers on the Roster it got us to thinking “Hmm, wouldn’t it be nice if we could make Vonage call those numbers for us?” So we added Vonage integration.
New Feature: Player files and links
(Dec 29th, 2008)
We’ve added a new feature that allows you to upload and attach files (or web links) to a player’s roster record. This can be perfect for situations where you have permission forms, medical records or other information that needs to be saved for each player. Each file or link can be made public (i.e. anyone on the team can view/download) or private (i.e. only the team managers can view/download).
New Availability Features
(Dec 18th, 2008)
We’ve just rolled out some cool new features in the Availability tab, all of which were requested by our users:
New “Don’t Know” State
Previously, there were three possible states for Availability: Yes, No, and No Response. We’ve now added in a 4th state: Don’t Know. This is represented by a yellow question mark. We heard from some Managers that they would like some indication that differentiated “no response” from “I don’t know yet.”
TeamSnap launches out of beta
(Dec 16th, 2008)
We are very pleased to announce that TeamSnap has launched out of beta. We’ll be rolling out our new plans to users over the next couple weeks, but the best news is that for many teams, TeamSnap will remain FREE!
Our newest release – calendar view and more
(Oct 23rd, 2008)
We just went live this week with our latest release, incorporating a few nifty new features.
First up, the much-requested calendar view. Click on the Schedule tab and you will see you can now choose between two views: the familiar List View and the newfangled Calendar View. Pick the one you prefer, or toggle between the two. It’s snappy-fast!
