    One of the main benefits of our new website is that each team is automatically provided a website and mobile app, pre-filled with rosters and game schedules. 

    We've setup a page on how to access your team page via the website and via the Sport Ngin mobile app. Visit 'How to Setup Your Team Page & App' to get started now.

    If you're a coach and haven't customized your site yet, make sure you've done the following:

    1. Coaches must have their own login for via SportNgin. It's not okay to use someone else's. You must create your login with your name. If you're not in our 'Coaches' group in Sport Ngin, you won't have access to edit your page. Email to request to be added to the group if you just signed up or if you don't believe you have the edit permission for your team.
    2. Coaches will have access to edit the team logo, post practice schedules, communicate with families and more. Dig into your page and the mobile app to check out all the functionality.

    Coaching Tools

    As a new coach, you can feel a bit overwhelmed, especially if you never played soccer, or if like me, it was many years since you last played.

    When I started coaching C5 three years ago, I picked up coaching books, read blogs and watched YouTube videos. All of those are helpful, but I've also found two apps that I've enjoyed using the last few years and wanted to share those with you. I've posted these to the Coaches page on our new site and referenced them below.

    Also, I'd like to highly recommend all coaches setup their team page and app via Sport Ngin. It's an invaluable tool. Previously, I setup a Shutterfly for each of my teams. This left room for error in adding the game schedules and rosters and it was quite time consuming. I would also setup a group text app for my teams for quick parent communication. By setting up your new Sport Ngin team page and app, you have instant access to a great page and app that is already pre-filled for you and a simple tool for sharing practices, photos, and communication to your families. If you have any questions on these new pages or the two apps below, I welcome you to reach out to me by clicking email me directly.


    Easy Practice App

    Easy Practice is an invaluable tool for the parent coach. With detailed step-by-step instructions, video examples and complete practice plans by age division, this is one of the simplest and best practice planning apps I've seen. It helped me get up-to-speed within my first few years of coaching. I wouldn't use it for every practice, but it provided for a great foundation that I began to build on.

    Soccer Dad App

    The Soccer Dad app is a great tool for those coaches that like to pre-plan each game and track player times in each position. You can also share your plans with your assistant coach via a dropbox integration. When working to ensure fair play time and to pre-plan your subs, Soccer Dad is awesome. You can start the timer and track scores during the game. You can also have a parent enter player stats.

    Tips For the Heat

    Although the Air Quality may remain acceptable, during days of excessive heat, it is advisable to restrict activities and increase hydration. All coaches, parents and players are recommended to use their best judgement during excessive heat. Parents always have the right to limit, restrict or exclude their child from practice. During games please prepare early - begin hydrating the day before the game, bring ample water to the game, and wear plenty of sunscreen. Referees will allow longer quarter and half-time breaks and allow additional substitutions as needed.
