Fraser Valley Volleyball Club & TeamLinkt

How Fraser Valley Volleyball Club’s switch to TeamLinkt aided in the success of their season, saved them money, and provided them with all the features they needed to help team members. 

Overview

Recruiting for, running, and funding a volleyball club can be quite a burden. It takes the proper software and thorough strategic planning to run everything smoothly. With the introduction of sports management software, leagues have never operated more efficiently. As a pandemic hit the sports world and being cost-conscious became even more important TeamLinkt we wanted to go above and beyond to provide all those valued management features for free. 

Making the Switch 

In November 2020 Fraser Valley Volleyball Club made the switch over to TeamLinkt after using TeamSnap for years. With TeamLinkt being a free alternative to TeamSnap, it made sense financially to give TeamLinkt a try for the season.. Fraser Valley Volleyball Club set up TeamLinkt’s  online registration tool, including the use of discount codes and was the new payment installments option. This option allows team-members to pay a lump sum of money upfront and then pay the remaining balance in multiple installments afterward. For many leagues, this feature is attractive to ensure flexibility for team members that may not be able to pay in full and automation of registration payments alleviating the old-fashioned pen and paper method. For Fraser Valley Volleyball, TeamLinkt’s new registration features helped them solve this stressful process. 

In addition to using the registration feature, they capitalized on TeamLinkt’s event health waiver feature. The club was able to create a health waiver that was completed by participants through the team management app. Once complete, team administrators and league administrators have the ability to track who was at each event and if they completed the health waiver form. 

The League Website

Fraser Valley Volleyball club currently uses a third-party program for their website where they easily link their TeamLinkt registration form. This is a testament to the flexibility of TeamLinkt’s features in that it can work with existing websites, or alongside other systems. This was one of the many things that made the switch from TeamSnap to TeamLinkt a smooth process. In addition to flexibility, there are also no monthly or yearly fees to use  the TeamLinkt systemwhich was an instant savings for the volleyball club.. In addition, all teams received the TeamLinkt team management app for free.

 

These features give leagues and clubs complete oversight of every event. Data can be easily accessed and exported if necessary to share this information with a third party. TeamLinkt has made it their mission to provide the greatest support to their users.
