Here’s How Youth Sports Club Administrators Can Save Time

Club administrators are usually swamped in work, especially during league season. With limited time in hand and a ton of things to handle, club administrators need to figure out the art of doing more in less time. Here are a few tips to help you save time:


Create separate teams for each task


As the club administrator you would be handling different tasks and functions such as PR and publicity, logistics and arrangements, equipment and gear etc. Juggling from one task to another can become a concern. To be on the top of your game, create separate teams on InstaTeam, one for each task/function. Exchange all communication on InstaTeam messages, this way there will be no communication error.


Manage schedules on InstaTeam calendar


As the club administrator, your calendar will have far more events and goals than the team’s calendar. Create separate calendar, with individual events, tasks and goals to be accomplished, for each team. For instance, the PR and Publicity team will have goals like social media publicity, daily updates, receiving promotional material, press releases etc. Scheduling goals, creating events and putting things on the team calendar takes very less time and puts a whole lot of work in place.


Create a team with the parents


One of the most important things to do during a busy season or at the time of league is to create a team with parents. Keep posting messages, over communicate and you will have brought down your workload by more than half. Most of parents’ questions will be answered and doubts settled. 


You have volunteers for a reason. Give them work, be clear about the outcome you need and the rules and guidelines to be followed, trust them with the responsibility. You do not need to micromanage.


Communicate, communicate, communicate


All management errors, administrative blunders and organizational fiascos are caused due to lack of communication or miscommunication, well almost all. Make sure all communication is in writing. Use simple clear language. Be as concise and to-the-point as possible.
