Managing

Communications

Teamstuff app

In 2020 Teamstuff is the recommended app for scheduling games and monitoring the availability of players. Teamstuff requires 100% take-up from the parent/carer group to be an effective tool for communicating with the group. The teams volunteer roster can also be managed in Teamstuff.

Facebook groups

Facebook groups are optional – but if using, create groups for the whole age-group not for teams within an age-group. Consider using names like “Newtown Swans year of 2006” instead of “under 13s” so that the group can last longer than one season.

Managing Volunteers

The full list of home game volunteer duties can be found in the Team Duties for Home Games page .The individual tasks are detailed in the Resources > Volunteers menu on this site.

The manager allocates and oversees volunteers duties. The volunteer roster for your team can be managed the teamstuff app.
