Welcome to SportsConnect

Welcome to SportsConnect in Melrose Youth Soccer.  This guide is for City Coaches who are new to using SportsConnect as a coach in Melrose.  Regardless of whether you have been a coach in Melrose before or not, this guide should be useful in helping you use our new software system.  And please return here frequently as we'll update this page with more information as we learn more about the system and the questions people have with it.

First, for general coach information, see the general Coaches & Volunteers page in the Program Info section of our web site.  This page is intended to only focus on the use of the software system. 

Second, please also read the Parent Guide to SportsConnect as it covers a lot of the basic information about using SportsConnect.  And that includes information about volunteering for a coaching role if you haven't already done so.


Navigating to Your Volunteer Info

From the My Account page after logging in, you can see the status of your volunteer role by clicking on Volunteer in the left side navigation.  If you have been assigned to a team, you'll see that info displayed on the page.  In SportsConnect, the blue bar under your name indicates what program you volunteered for, what grade grouping you volunteered for, and to which team you have been assigned.  If you don't see the third listing in blue, that means you haven't yet been assigned to a team. 

You'll also see information in the Volunteer section about the status of adult training and clearances.  For more information on that process, see the Mass Youth Soccer page

From this Volunteer page, you can click to Visit Team Page.  The Team Page is where you will find the tools to manage your team.  Bookmark this page so you can jump to your specific Team Page directly in the future. 


Using the Team Page

The Team Page is where you can find your roster and if you click to Print Roster, you'll be able to add in the information about the players and download that roster using the Export button.  The Roster tab is where you can edit the roster to add jersey numbers. 

Your Calendar is visible on the Team Page.  It will show your game schedule and if you want as a coach to add practices, you can create them here using the Create Event button.  Note that the calendar here shows only your team info and not any full league events - for the full league events, go to the league calendar

The e-mail capability is pretty easy to use.  Just click on that tab, enter a subject and message, and then choose "Select All" to send a message to everyone.  Then click Send.  There was a bug in the coach e-mail functionality that has now been fixed so you will be able to send messages to your team normally now.    

And finally, if you like, you can replace the stock image with your own image.
