Are you a swimming coach or run a swimming club? Welcome to a new way of doing things.
Let’s explore why Teamer could be the answer to your swimming admin. A fast solution to who’s available, picking your swimming squads and collecting fees.
Managing a swimming club doesn’t have to take up all of your spare time. At least, not the admin anyhow!
On the Teamer app, swimmers and parents can see when the 50m butterfly is, your team can chat about recent championships or buy tickets to a club event.
It can be used by anyone involved in running swimming events. Community swimming pools could use Teamer to share swim classes or pool-based fitness, keeping customers in the loop.
Teamer offers easy ways for swimming clubs or casual teams to stay updated. Let’s show you how…
Once you have a Teamer account, the next step is to create your team. This won’t take the swimming coach or team manager long; they can add a team name, team crest and team photo.
Each swimmer’s profile can be personalised; they can add a photo, a bio and favourite tumbler or Olympic champion for inspiration.
The swimming team manager can include private comments on each page. Members will all be visible on the member section of your Teamer page.
Who else can you invite?
As well as your swimmers, you can also ask others to use Teamer.
This might be swimming coaches, parents, helpers or supporters who want to stay in the know.
As the team manager, you can choose the status of other team members and adjust their account privileges as required.
So, you might grant access to a volunteer to oversee the payments or social events.
Swimming events can be set up and shared via the events page. You can publish training sessions, classes, parties, competitions or socials.
In just a few taps on the Teamer app, organise a session from backstroke to breaststroke with everything listed on the activity screen.
Tell your swimmers about a new competition and everyone gets an email, text or app notification, depending on their settings.
The events page lists the events, and there is also a calendar view so you can clearly see future swim meets coming up too.
You can connect the team calendar to your personal Google, iCal, or Outlook calendar, and all future Teamer events will automatically be synchronised!
The calendar view makes it simple for swimmers or parents to share their availability.
They can select a certain day and drag across for however many days they are not available, and those days will become red on their calendar.
This information will show on the team manager’s calendar, and the swimmers will automatically be marked as unavailable for any events across that period.
On an individual event page, the manager has the opportunity to select the lineup and put swimmers on standby.
Each swimmer can then accept or decline, and organisers don’t have to chase anyone down at late notice.
View attendance for your swimming team across a season. No more guessing. Make smart decisions on selection and swimmer welfare based on the Teamer app.
The attendance page shows a chart of all the recent statistics - the swimming events and which swimmer was able to attend. You can even see a past record for a swimmer too for a broader picture.
Great news - no more counting cash or visits to the bank. With Teamer, you can move all of your payments online, saving volunteers hours and knowing which swimmer has paid and when.
Setting up your team with Teamer payments takes minutes:
If you’re organising swimming events, doing it with Teamer instead of looking through bank statements or counting out cash will make such a difference.
Getting paid direct to your bank account also has to be the way to go.
Your gymnastics Teamer page includes a gallery section, where anyone can upload photos and videos to share with team members.
The media can be seen by everyone in the team, and they can leave comments too.
Teamer also has a document page where anyone can upload a document securely that will be seen by all the team members. You could share a photo of new gymnastics equipment or a video from yesterday’s aerial display.
Sometimes you want to get a message out to all your team members as quickly as possible. Or just want to have a conversation online with other swimmers.
A team Whatsapp group is just another platform to have to use.Likewise, forget confusing email threads or scrolling through texts, use your teamtalk section to share any essential updates.
That way, it’s all in the same place for everyone to refer to, along with the swimming events. You can send messages that will be seen by all team members, whether swimmers, parents or volunteers.
Everyone can opt into your preferred mode of communication - email and notifications via the Teamer mobile app. All email and app notifications are free.
See swimming stats and medal winners
All event pages have a section for swimmers to leave comments, and there is a report section for the team manager as well.
Swimmers can comment to congratulate a new personal best or medal.
The manager can write a report afterwards, giving all of the performances and what to look forward to next.
Why is Teamer great for coaches?
Coaches and team managers put in a lot of hard work for their teams for the love of the sport. Often with full-time jobs alongside, Teamer can massively cut down on that admin time and give coaches more time to focus on coaching.
Why is Teamer great for captains?
Team captains can enjoy all of the same team admin features. Whoever sets up the team on Teamer can designate which team members have admin privileges.
So if the swimming captain has a leading role in organising your team’s events, they can have easy access to all the key admin features offered by Teamer as well! Captains can schedule training sessions, write event reports, invite new members and much more.
Teamer for your junior section
How you use Teamer might vary based on your club and the age group involved. Junior teams or club junior sections can benefit from the features on Teamer. If the kids are too young to be using the app themselves, you can get the parents involved on Teamer to keep in touch about fixtures and payments.
