* Note that these are suggestions and recommendations to utilize ENDALGO to be organized for upcoming soccer events. It has nothing to do with State and County regulations and guidelines.
Soccer has Started to Come Back
Soccer has slowly started to come back, but with different areas having different guidelines and regulations it has to be the organizer, manager, coach or administrator’s duty to be updated on those rules. What ENDALGO can help with is to be organized with your group’s digital space and give you multiple options to inform your groups, teams and clubs so that they are always updated.
Start with Small Group Sessions
We suggest scheduling multiple sessions in shorter time lengths. All guidelines regarding team/contact sports suggest groups to be in very small groups (typically some number around 5). Unless your session can have a handful of coaches leading training sessions, it seems viable and economical to have shorter sessions, but have multiple sessions and allocate certain players in each session. ENDALGO gives the admin of the group the ability to manipulate group members to be in certain events hosted by that group; if the admin can create multiple sessions for a certain training day and allocate each event with limited members, this can give precise information to the players on where and when they would be training and practicing.
Discussion Posts on Group Pages
ENDALGO’s soccer group management features the ability to make discussion posts. This functionality should be utilized for organizers and coaches to discuss many topics regarding the reopening of the soccer groups. Some discussion topics can be:
- How often the members think the team should train or practice.
- Any feedback on the new type of small grouped sessions.
- Suggestions for training and practice.
- How the group is following State or County rules.
- What the group expects in upcoming weeks with their program.
This kind of information sharing is important not only for members to be aware of the group's efforts but also for members to stay engaged with the group. Ask for the members’ opinion and feedback in the discussion comments; this can help your understanding of the members’ status, which will help your decision making in the future.
Stay Active in the Group Chat Room
Most team members will be relying on the organizer or coach on what to do in order to continue their soccer activities. If you, as a leader of your group, stay informative and show a continuous effort to let your members know what the group plans are. Group activities can be different from an original routine they had when they restart the program, and it’s important to continuously inform the members with updated information; ENDALGO can definitely help in this matter with group chat. A group chat is created automatically when you create a group page on ENDALGO and this is evergreen on the group page. All members have access to this group chat and you can utilize this to always keep informing and notifying group members.
