Regina Youth Flag Football League Case Study

Regina Youth Flag Football League Case Study

In this Case Study we take a look at how moving team processes onto TeamLinkt software saved both time and money for the Regina Youth Flag Football League. From starting with using TeamLinkt’s team management app to fully integrating several team processes, Regina Youth Flag discussed how TeamLinkt changed their sport for the better.

 

Overview

Switching an entire league to a new platform for registration, scheduling and all team/league functions can be daunting for team administrators. It takes the proper software and thorough strategic planning to execute a season and that’s where TeamiInkt can help. With the introduction of sports management software, leagues have never operated more efficiently. Learn more about why more leagues are choosing TeamLinkt and how the staff are committed to providing the most value to users. 

Making the Switch 

In Spring 2019 Regina Youth Flag Football moved their league administration over to using the TeamLinkt software and have used it ever since. The rising cost of using competitor’s software made switching over to TeamLinkt an easy decision for Mike Thomas, League Convener of the RYFFL. Regina Youth Flag Football first tried out the TeamLinkt team management app with their 200+ teams for the first season. From there, after a positive experience with the app they implemented the registration system to use and had over 1,000 kids register without a hitch. This was a gateway to using additional features such as the schedule builder tool. What is unique about RYFFL is that they still use a third-party website as they previously had that in place, but TeamLinkt allows the ability to embed features such as standings, scores and schedule widgets with ease. As stated by Mike the league administrator, “we are able to embed TeamLinkt extensions into our third party website. It is very possible to have this integration and it is not difficult at all. TeamLinkt essentially provided you with the embeddable verbiage and this link then shoots you over to your TeamLinkt content.” 

For RYFFL, TeamLinkt’s new features helped them solve many stressful processes associated with running a large league. 

Using a third-party program for their website where they easily link their TeamLinkt registration form is a testament to the flexibility of TeamLinkts features in that it can work with existing websites, or alongside other systems. This was one of the many things that enticed them to choose TeamLinkt. In addition to flexibility, there are also no monthly or yearly fees to use our system, only a small registration percentage on credit card payments made, all teams received our team management app for free.. In short, it saves money and helps a team run smoothly. 

Safety First 

Mike Thomas stated, “at first we were just utilizing TeamLinkt for team management & scheduling purposes, but after using it we realized it could handle more of our operations with some minor adjustments. The following year we added on more of our operations including standings as well as the integration of 1,600 of our Fall registrants. We have kept adding on and it has worked flawlessly. The TeamLinkt development team was able to continue to be there to exceed our expectations.” 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. Helping the league adjust to COVID-19 protocols as best they could. 

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.

“We have had close to upwards of 4,000 individuals go through the online registration with TeamLinkt. The process itself is very easy and user friendly. One that was commented on by many individuals.”

A Sport on the Rise: Flag Football

A Sport on the Rise: Flag Football

 Flag Football has seen a rise in popularity across the nation. In this blog we will uncover why this sport has seen an increase in traction and how to get a flag football league up and running in your community. 

Why Flag Football?

As sports have evolved people have become more aware of potential injuries such as broken bones, sprains and concussions. In traditional football the reality of enduring a concussion in your sports career is almost commonplace. As research has come to better understand the lasting effects of concussions, parents are opting for a safer form of the sport. Additionally, the cost is much cheaper for flag football than tackle with the reduced amount of equipment required.

Lastly, it is inclusive for children of all abilities and incorporates the elements of teamwork, community, determination, speed, hand-eye coordination and more.

The following year we added on more of our operations including standings, the team management app and online registration of 1,600 of our Fall registrants. We have kept adding on and it has worked flawlessly. The TeamLinkt team was able to continue to be there to exceed our expectations.”
