Sports teams, whether they’re for casual baseball games or highly competitive tennis clubs, have their own unique challenges when it comes to membership management! Let’s look at some of those problems as well as the solutions to keep your club functioning as smoothly as possible. 

Miscommunications

When you’re organizing practice schedules, away games, fundraisers, and team requirements, you want to make sure that you’re not getting your wires crossed anywhere. The best way to ensure that all your communication runs smoothly is by keeping it in one spot! Whether you use our integrated email tool or choose to use a connection with a tool like MailChimp, Sendlane, or Drip, keep all your member communications in one spot so you always know what you’ve communicated to your members! 

No New Members

Getting new members is the lifeblood of membership groups. Without new members, your organization can’t survive. Make it a priority to encourage new members to join with things like membership drives, incentive or referral programs, and some good old-fashioned marketing! 

Difficulty Tracking Payments

If you’re not accurately (and easily!) tracking the payments your members make to your association, whether as membership dues or fundraising donations, you could be leaving money on the table. Make sure your influx of money is accurately tracked and recorded with our integrations with QuickBooks, MoneyMinder, and more

Tracking Event Attendance 

Ever wonder how many people actually come to your events? You shouldn’t be left wondering! Track ticket sales, check visitors into events, and even compare how many people RSVP’d as attending, but didn’t show up! Our integration with Eventbrite makes this easier than ever. 

Wrapping Up 

Whether you’re organizing pickup basketball games for your neighborhood or coordinating schedules for a national road racing team, the behind-the-scenes management of sports teams can get pretty complex! Luckily, with a membership management system like Join It, you can enjoy more time with your team and less time behind a computer.
