MOTI Tip: Making Communicating with your Team Simple!

The Announcement Board

Communicate so everyone hears your message!

You, as the Coach, should customize the Announcement as soon as you can.  Then remind players, coaches and parents to view the Announcements to obtain up-to-date information.  

Once players, coaches, and parents view the Announcement they will see the benefit of it.  No more email messages to hunt for in your email, trying to remember which email address they are coming to, or remembering which “category” your email provider shuffled your messages of to in their attempt to organize your life.

To change the Announcement Board:

  1. Touch or click the “EDIT.”
  2. Select the old message and delete it.
  3. Type in your new message.
  4. Touch or click “SAVE ANNOUNCEMENT.”

Besides communications on dates, locations of games, or changes in field locations, here are some ideas for keeping the messages Positive!

Great game last week, lots of passing and holding in your positions! It is Sue’s Birthday!

The footwork everyone did was evident in our previous game! Great to see everyone doing the Reverse V on the field in the game, it is helping us to keep possession. Caleb’s mom is bringing the Treats this week.

Rain out today. Fields are too wet! But remember to work on those two new skills at home. I will look and see who is working on them.

Practice tonight is at 6:45 pm. I hear that the team we played last week noticed our good team sportsmanship!

Remember to bring plenty of water tonight. It is REALLY HOT. We will be taking breaks as needed.
