Wondered if anyone else had used this type of thing to help keep their team(s) organized?

Yah I did the same thing for a few seasons for our flag football teams. I chose to go with Weplay at the time, as it was the only one I could find that was free. Probably there are alot more options to do this now.

Curious if Rob went through with the Website and/or facebook page and how it worked out? this seems like a really good idea and somethign to establish before the Parents Meeting. Might be really good if you can get the other parents to get engage to assist with pictures/videos of games/practices, on top of another means of distributing the game/practice schedule.
(from a technical standpoint it may be easier/more professional look to use a build a website tool, something like squarespace and register your own domain)

As I mentioned above, I ended up using Team Snap and like it.
Here are few of the pro’s from my perspective after using it for almost 250+ games/practices:
-It simplifies communication regarding practices, games, and events
-Everything is in one place - easy to record/change and not worry about it (with reminders set)
-Easy to schedule practices, games, and events with location details and notes
-You can have auto e-mail reminders on all events (practices and games)
-Option to have auto text reminders on all events
-You can include links to maps for everyone on the schedule
-Track who is bringing refreshments or helping with stats
-Track who is coming to practice or games (very helpful)
-Posted motivational videos (link) in the message board section
-Posted teaching concept videos (link) in the message board section
-Ability to track our season records
-They have mobile aps for both Android and iPhone
Keep in mind, I live in a big city, which means we travel a lot for practices and games. Looking back through the number of locations I've put in Team Snap, it’s over 50+, easy. We play in several leagues all year round, plus tournaments. Currently, we’re playing in two leagues at the same time, so we’ll have 2-3 practices per week, plus 3-4 games per week (double-headers). So, my perspective is a bit different than someone who might use it for one or two seasons.
I think it’s only $6.95 per month for the basic and $9.95 if you want a few more bells and whistles, with no contract. You can cancel anytime.

Again, I have no financial interest in Team Snap, just liked them out of all the sites I researched.
