Setting up TeamApp
As you may have heard, WYL uses an iPhone app called TeamApp to help manage communications between parents, coaches, and the league.
It's not perfect, but in our experience, it's better than email.
Here are some of it's key features:
- Events: Here, you'll find all of your team's practices. You can sync these events to your phone or favorite online calendar (e.g., Google Calendar).
- News: These are important League or team-wide communications. It's like email, except that you'll also receive a notification on your phone.
- Direct messages: This is like group chat or group text messages for everyone on your team. This is great for last minute things like schedule changes or rain delays.
- Schedules: This is a link to your team's official MBYLL schedule.
To download the app, visit the official TeamApp website.
Once it's installed on your phone, open the app, and click Log in or sign up:
Next, provide your email address, and click Continue:
After you confirm your email address, you'll see the Welcome screen.
There, click Search for an existing app:
On the next screen, search for Westwood. We should be near the top of the results.
Once you find it, click Westwood Youth Lacrosse to join:
This should take you to the WYL's TeamApp. You're almost done!
The last step is joining the group for your son's specific team. So, click Become a member... at the top of the screen:
Here, you'll see a list of Access Groups.
Each team has its own access group (including Select teams), and there's also a group for Parents, and another for Coaches.
You should join all the access groups that apply to your family.
