Making pickup groups management easy
Now that you have set up your pickup soccer group on ENDALGO(if you haven’t please refer to this post on how to start a group and what to expect initially), let us give you a detailed background on how to utilize this group and the benefits you can enjoy from it.
Let us stress on the soccer group management solution that ENDALGO provides. The reason why ENDALGO is an one and only type of soccer platform is because of its dynamic scope of providing detailed features that fits exactly for soccer groups, but also being an open platform for those groups to be exposed and joined by the larger public audience. Pickup groups can benefit from scheduling games, member list and RSVP management, collecting game fees, group chat, etc.
Grow your group with ENDALGO
As in the usability of ENDALGO, this topic may not be obvious in the service that we provide, but it’s actually the most demanded feature that pickup soccer groups are interested in; it’s the ability to keep recruiting new players to the group and growing as a community. Standing out and attracting players can be a challenge and ENDALGO is the only soccer community platform that allows organizers and group leaders to find new players.
Let’s say you’re using Meetup or TeamSnap to organize your soccer group. The most common shortcomings of each of the two services are below:
- Meetup: Not having the right new users signing up for the group, since Meetup is not sports or soccer oriented,
- TeamSnap: Having group features is great, but there are no ways within the service to be able to attract new people to join the group -- no room to grow.
Hence, pickup groups find it extremely attractive to give ENDALGO a try for growth purposes.
Game information and RSVPing
For pickup groups, the event page and player RSVP can be seen as the most important feature that we provide. From the event page, the group members can confirm the date, time, location, price, and other game details including guest allowance; groups typically, and are recommended, to write detailed descriptions regarding any waiver, late/no show and refund policies, so that no miscommunications in sensitive topics happen in the future. Users can leave comments to the individual events and also get direction with Google Map integration.
When you have people signing up/RSVPing to your pickup game, you as an admin of the group have total control over managing the list; you can add another player to the going list, remove someone from going to the not going or the waitlist, or even remove the individual from the event. Pickup game attendee lists can become messy with reasons such as last minute changes or bringing guests when space and time are limited -- you as the organizer should be able to control these situations in a way you desire to and that’s what ENDALGO provides.
Communication business taken care of
Think of one thing you do with your group members the most besides actually playing soccer together; it’s most likely going to be chatting. Whether it’s through text, WhatsApp or email, a group of people are bound to have a source of real-time communication. And, ENDALGO lets you do that all in the platform by providing group chat features. Need to chat with individual members? No problem; just click on the individual profile and simply click the send message button.
Inviting your buddies over
We recommend that you start inviting your closest group members first to inform them about the new group page on ENDALGO and sharing all group activities here. For your convenience, we’ve made some direct ways for you to share the link to your group in different communication channels.
