Communication It Is



Good communication practice and a fitting communicationtool that enables it, are like two sides of the same coin. You can’t do well with only one of them. so, if you are looking at motivating your team, engaging parents and improving team bonding, communication is your answer.

Here are some ways you can use InstaTeam to improve communication in your team.

1.      Meet the parents – Meetings with parents boosts trust and brings in a healthy, collaborative environment. Schedule these meetings on weekends making it easier for working parents to attend. You can schedule the meeting as an event on the InstaTeam app. Encourage parents to mark attendance on the app.

2.      Friendly matches with parents – Not just meetings, you can organize friendly matches with parents. Positive parent involvement helps kids gain better from their sporting experience. As per a study conducted by McCarthy, Jones and Clark-Carter (2008) states that positive parental involvement is one of the most reported reason for kids enjoying their youth sporting experience. In another study conducted by Mills, Butt, Maynard and Harwood (2012), according to coaches believed parents play the most important role in a child’s sports experience. They even suggested parental support boosts the child’s chances to progress to a professional level.

3.      Instant messages – If you do not have any important information to send, send a motivational message from the InstaTeam app. Sending text messages keeps team members in the loop, and is a pleasant way to connect. But again, do not make it too frequent, the trick will lose its magic.

4.       Keep communication positive and receptive. At all cost. Do not allow personal comments on kids or parent banter to take place in the common forum. These things can turn pretty ugly.

5.      Send surveys – Confused about something? A great way to get-off the confusion is to ask. Send a survey through the InstaTeam app. Surveys also keep members positively engaged.

6.      Participate and encourage team participation in the team’s social media accounts. You can manage all social media accounts through the single InstaTeam dashboard, which shall make your life a lot easier.

7.      Take communication seriously – Take small things like ‘marking attendance on the InstaTeam app’ or ‘signing up for items’ on the app, very seriously. If team members and parents start taking communication for granted, the team is bound to fall apart. If they are not used to using the app, then even important communication will go unnoticed. Ensure players and parents read messages on the app and are frequent to it.
