NOTE: Both app updates to GameChanger Team Manager have been released as of November 2nd 2021. All users will be able to participate in the Open Beta simply by installing the App Store or Google Play updates to their GameChanger Team Manager app and following the instructions below.

GameChanger is excited to announce the release of Organizations which is now in Open Beta for all Coaches and Organization Administrators. This Beta release is intended to gather feedback from you - our Coaches/Staff, League Organizers, Travel Teams and soon-to-be Tournament Organizers.

Let's Get Started

To create an Organization tap on the Team Create [+] icon in the top-right corner of the Teams screen and select Create an Organization from the bottom of the Team Create screen that follows:

Tap the [+] icon to get started

Creating the Organization

Once you have begun the creation of your Organization you will:

  • Designate the Organization as a League or Travel Organization
  • Select Baseball or Softball ... (More Sports - Coming Soon!)
  • Enter the Organization Location
  • Give your Organization a Name
  • Select a Governing Body (Little League, USSSA, etc) or Skip For Now
  • Select the Season of Play for your Organization (Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall)

NOTE: Each Organization is a standalone collection of teams. If you would like to accommodate for "Divisions" in your League (i.e. Minors, Majors, 12U, 14U, etc) then we suggest you create separate Organizations for each (i.e. Sample League 12U, Sample League 14U, etc).

Within a few seconds you should see your Organization display on your Home/Teams Screen.

Inviting Teams To Your Organization

Once the Organization has been created you can invite teams to join. Each team that you invite must be a team that has already been created on GameChanger Team Manager in order for that team to join. Each team that is invited to the Organization will receive a "Team Alert" that is available from their Team Alert screen accessible from the Bell (🔔) icon on the top navigation bar in the app.

Adding Teams as the Organization Admin

Once your Organization has been created any existing GC TM Team can be invited to join

Accepting the Invite As a Coach/Staff

Tap the Bell icon to access your Team Alerts

Welcome Coaches to Your New Organization

Well done! Once that first Coach/Staff accepts your Organization invitation then the Org Admin(s) and Coaches will be able to view the following screens and explore the data that is collected from the participating teams in the Org:

  • Standings - This will display the Wins/Losses/Ties for those teams that have joined. After the completion of each game the Standings will update. Tapping each Team's name will navigate you to that Team's primary screen in the app.
  • Pitch Counts - As an Organization Admin the arm health of our young players is of vital importance. From this screen you may download a Pitch Count Report for the last 5 days of games and ensure that Coaches are complying to League/Organization mandates for pitch counts and for player safety.
Keep track of Pitch Counts from all pitchers that have played in the last five days.
  • Teams - From this screen as the Org Admin you may remove any Team(s) that you no longer want to be part of the Org by tapping on the [...] button and then tapping the Remove From Organization button. As a Coach you will only see that [...] button for your own team and will be able to Leave Organization if you so choose.
  • Settings - Tapping the "Gear" (⚙️) icon you can invite and manage additional Org Admins (maximum of 4), view the Organization info or edit that info if you are the Org Admin and you may also Delete the Organization. Deleting the organization will remove all Team associations to that org as well.
Each Organization can have a maximum of four Organization Admins

The Future of Organizations

We are excited to launch this feature into its Beta phase and hope that you will see the potential of this new capability within GameChanger Team Manager. As the Organization feature continues to improve and progress we will work with you to gather feedback throughout the Beta phase.

Some key capabilities to look forward to in the coming months:

  • Head-to-Head Games - Each participating team in the Organization will still be able to score but the addition of a Head-to-Head matchup in the Organization will allow a single scorer to keep score for (and even potentially LiveStream video for) both participating teams in the matchup.
  • Results/Schedule screen - We will display all finalized Game Results, LIVE games, and upcoming Scheduled games in the Organization itself so that a League/Travel Org/Tournament can follow the games all in one place.
  • Organizations for Other Sports - With the release of Live Scoring in Seven New Sports on GameChanger Team Manager we look forward to providing Organization support for those new sports as well.
  • Tournament Capabilities - At its core, the Organization is intended to help support the creation and administration of Tournaments. But in order to serve those Tournament organizers best, we are excited to build a "Tournament" organization type that will enable a smooth and intuitive operation of these specialized events.
  • Fan Support - While initially intended to support Organization Admins and Coaches first and foremost, we feel that an Organization is a logical gathering place for family and fans as well. We look forward to building out a robust Fan experience that will allow all users to enjoy every game played throughout the Organization.

Thank you for checking out the Beta of our new Organizations capability in GameChanger Team Manager. We're excited about the potential of this new feature and we look forward to gathering your feedback and suggestions to make it the very best that it can be.

Download the app from the App Store or Google Play on your mobile device to check out Organizations or, better yet, encourage your fellow Coaches to join your newly created Organization!
