How I Became a Team Mom Genius
So, I am not really a “genius” but I do like efficiency and communication when dealing with things like team dinner sign ups, volunteer shifts at competitions, carpool arrangements for special events and all the coordination efforts that come along with being Team Mom.
High School Swim Season starts next week and it looks like I will be the Team Mom (especially since this is the third year I have had a student athlete on the team and I will have two student athletes on the team this year). As part of my duties, I will have to coordinate parent volunteers for team dinners and working the home meets. Luckily I have a great tool at hand – SignUpGenius – and you can use it for free, too!
SignUpGenius takes all the back and forth and craziness out of managing sign ups for anything! Here’s how it works:
I used SignUpGenius last season to coordinate team dinners and I literally had the first sign up sheet set up in 5 minutes, the invites went out and we had the whole season covered in a matter of days. Then when it was someone’s week to take care of the team dinner, they got an email reminder. Rather than everyone sending me their preferences and then having to de-conflict dates, as people signed up through SignUpGenius they could see real time what dates were still available and what each family had opted to bring so there were no duplicate meals either! And I didn’t have to remind anyone it was their week!
Not only is the process simple for all involved, if you like your organizational efforts to look good and be efficient, Sign Up Genius has 365 different form themes and allows you to upload your own images so you can customize your theme and really look like a genius to the rest of the team!
SignUpGenius wants to give you a chance to win an end-of-season prize package that will keep that excitement and passion alive until NEXT season.
