TeamSnap, a company that provides mobile and web tools for managing teams and activities, today announced a partnership with Positive Coaching Alliance, a national nonprofit developing “Better Athletes, Better People” by working to provide a positive, character-building sports experience for all youth and high school athletes.
In addition to being a sponsor of PCA, TeamSnap is part of PCA’s Trusted Resources Program, which displays different tools that help the schools and youth sports organizations that partner with PCA. TeamSnap’s management service aims to free coaches from many administrative tasks, allowing them focus on helping their players become better athletes.
“TeamSnap is committed to improving the lives of everyone involved in youth sports — coaches, parents and athletes," said Dave DuPont, CEO of TeamSnap. "We share PCA's vision of the experience youth sports and high school sports should provide, and are delighted to be working with them."
PCA has affected more than five million youth athletes since its founding at Stanford University. Similarly, TeamSnap has acquired over five million users in 195 countries since it was founded in 2009.
"TeamSnap is a great tool that simplifies life for youth sports organizers, coaches, parents, and the athletes they serve,” said Jim Thompson, PCA Founder and CEO. “The more a youth sports community can focus on developing better athletes and better people, the better off we all are."
TeamSnap is an award-winning mobile and web service for managing ongoing activities including recreational and competitive sports teams, social groups, and other organizations. With a simple but powerful online interface, TeamSnap makes it easy to keep track of participants, schedules, attendance and availability, payments, statistics and more.
With enthusiastic customers in 195 countries and teams representing more than 100 different sports and non-sport groups, TeamSnap has quickly become one of the fastest-growing team and group management solutions available.
