Master Schedule:  The ‘Master Schedule’ feature can be used to view all the games for all of an A.D.’s teams at once.  You can run the master schedule by date range.  Just type in a date range and click on the arrow to filter the schedule.  To view a schedule for an individual team then go to ‘Choose a Team’ to select the team, then click on ‘Schedule’.  To view the schedule of all the games at a certain location then use the ‘Locations’ feature.


Locations:  Location information and location specific schedules can be viewed from the ‘Locations’ page.  The options in ‘Locations’ are ‘View Master Location List’, to view the addresses of all locations, and by clicking on the ‘Sched’ icon, to view location specific schedules.  The location schedules will show all games played at a location, not just the A.D.’s teams.  This can be used to manage gym schedules for a location.

 

Once a team is selected from ‘Choose a Team’, then the following options can be used for that specific team:

Logo and Pics:  You have the option of posting a team logo and even team pictures.  These images can be viewed by the public including the players and parents.


Communicate:  One of the best features of Sportability is ‘Communicate’.  On the ‘Communicate’ screen you can easily send a message to the E-Mail addresses of your entire team and assistant coaches all at once.  For example, if a practice is cancelled or to remind players/parents of an upcoming game then use ‘Communicate’ to send team messages.

Schedule, Reporting Game Scores:  You can view your team schedule from the ‘Schedule’ screen.  If you click on the icon next to a scheduled game you can view game info and print two different types of scoresheets for that particular game.  The scoresheets will have game information and rosters for both teams. 

 

After a game is completed you can enter the final score of the game to report game scores to the league.  You can also type an optional game summary report.  Just click on the icon next to a completed scheduled game, type in the score and click Save.  This will update the standings of the league.


View Team Page / View Public Area:  You can view the public team page for your team and the public area for your particular league by clicking on the links on the menu on the left side of the page.  The team page will have the score of the last game played and information of the next upcoming game for your team.  The team roster, coaches contact information, team notes, and the complete team schedule can also be viewed from the team page.

 

Information on the league that can be viewed, by clicking on the links, are the complete league Schedule, Standings, Head to Head Results, Playoff Brackets and Scores, League Notices (posted by the League Commissioner), Team Contacts, Locations (Gym addresses, you can even map driving directions), and a league Message Board to post comments about your teams league.
