ASSIGNMENTS

Use assignments to assign unique drills to each player and position. 

 

        

  • Assign a different set of drills to each player/position or use Lineups to assign workouts based on position with the positions as codes for workouts.  
  • Assign a different player to come up with a daily conditioning plan for the team, sport skill for the team, etc. 
  • Head to Head (H2H) Challenge: Players can set a challenge as an assignment and have one other member sign up to accept the challenge.

Note: The player’s name would have to be in the assignment.

  • Start a coach and team member group chat to encourage each other while you stay in shape at home. 
  • Share YouTube links of workouts, skills and drills.
  • Coach can share photos demonstrating moves.
  • Players can share photos performing workouts at home. 
  • Set up a group chat for small group conditioning challenges.

TEAMSNAP LIVE!

Start a friendly competition with your teammates. 

 

     

 

  • Who can do more pushups? Who can hold a squat the longest? Challenge accepted! Create a 2-3 hour game and then use TeamSnap Live! to let your players record their moves to share with the team.
  • See how your teammates and players are conditioning and executing skill and drill challenges. Share the daily conditioning, skill & drill plan in the TeamSnap Live! chat.

*Bonus: If your team is on a paid plan, you have access to three premium features: Availability, Tracking and Statistics.*

AVAILABILITY

Use availability to assign and track remote practices and drills.

 

     

 

  1. Create a new Event.
  2. If everyone on the team does the same drills and workouts, add them to the Notes section of the event. (Update availability settings so the team can see availability notes. In the webapp, go to Availability settings and check “Availability notes are viewable by everyone on the team.”)
    1. You can put PDFs or links documents in the Media tab if needed to further explain what each drill is, or you can provide a link to a video.
  3. Once the player completes the workouts, they can RSVP yes.

Note: Availability is a feature offered on our paid plans.


TRACKING

Track players that complete assigned conditioning and skills & drills. Only coaches and managers can track player progress; however, the whole team can view player progress if you update Item Tracking Privacy team preferences on the web app. Tracking is a great feature to record who completed specific daily or weekly workouts.

Coaches can check off players that have and have not completed daily workouts from chat or TeamSnap Live! messages. 

 

 

Once the Item Tracking preferences are updated, players can see how many of their teammates have completed daily or weekly workouts.

Note: Tracking is a feature offered on our paid plans.


STATISTICS

Team owners and managers can track at-home practices and progress using player statistics: 3-mile run times, situp repetitions, soccer juggling, softball drills, etc.

 

 

Create a new statistic and statistic group (e.g., conditioning).  We recommend recording repetitions in a timeframe because TeamSnap currently does not support timed statistics. Time statistics will need to be recorded as a fraction.

 

 

Track conditioning and drill leaders on the statistic leaderboard for each virtual game your team hosts.

 

 

Note: Statistics is a feature offered on our paid plans.
