We are delighted to inform you we have our own smartphone app which is 100% FREE to join through TeamApp.
Our Game Sense United app will keep you updated with club news news, club events, schedules for development fixtures, Round Robin events, festivals and tournaments we participate in and so much more!
'Access Groups' (e.g Years 2, Year 3, Year 4, U11s, U12s etc) have been created already. This means once you have registered our Admin team (Chris, Damon and I) will add you to the relevant age group that your child(ren) play in.
You only be able to see information within your own access group. For example, a player or parent in the Year 5s access group will not be able to see information relevant to players and parents in the access Year 2s group.
The app functionality also allows your children to register where you will be set your as a their 'Guardian' and the player as a 'Child' where permissions and restriction are put in place to minimise risk and ensure all our players are kept safe.
The app also includes sections such as 'Availabilities' where you can inform your team coaches whether you are available or not available for training or games by adding in your own dates and times. This function will be of a huge benefit to our coaching staff who play practice sessions around the number available and of course will well in advance of who is available to play in what games too!
In the 'Teams' function, once you have confirmed that your child is available to play in a fixture, Team coaches can confirm the squad for the week ahead by sending out 'push notification' out to all in the access group. Faster and simpler than emails back and forth!
To get the full features of this app you need to go to the App Store or Google Play and download Team App onto your smartphone or tablet.
Once downloaded you need to:
1. Sign-up to Team App. You'll be sent an e-mail to confirm your registration.
2. Log-in and search for Game Sense United, then request to become a member (you can see the GS United logo on the left).
3. Please ensure you select PUSH NOTIFICATIONS on set to ensure you receive Game Sense United notifications in real time.
If you don't have a smartphone or would prefer to receive e-mail correspondence, pleas
e reply to this e-mail with a request to be added manually.
We believe our Game Sense United app will help our club members interact better and support our youngsters even more all at the touch of a button!
With more functions to introduce in the coming weeks and months, we'll stop here and let you be the first to register and explore our new app before we meet introduce it to our minis sections in the near future. Of course if you have any concerns about the app please let us know.
A massive shout out to Coach Chris who has been instrumental in setting this up for us!
We believe this will be a huge part of our communications going forward (saving on emails, and email chasers). We believe that we can continue to spearhead positive change and set the standard in the football community with this is just another example of our modern, forward way of thinking.
We've received some fantastic feedback from parents that have used the App so far on how easy and helpful it is!
Have fun and we would love to hear your thoughts!
