AYL Update – League Toolbox

Published by:

With the continued growth of Atlanta Youth Lacrosse, we at AYL are excited to announce our move to League Toolbox for online registration, scheduling, donations, and overall league management. Since last November I have hunted for a league management solution that could offer more to our members than our current registration software. After months of searching, League Toolbox stood higher than all of the rest. Below is a breakdown of how AYL will transfer from Sports Signup to League Toolbox, as well as all the features each team, coach, player, and parent can expect.

Please note that we are moving to League Toolbox’s Online Registration System for Spring 2012 registration and phasing out our old registration system. If you registered for the 2011 Fall Season using Sports Signup – you do not need to do anything! I will be pulling each player’s registration information into the new system for the 2011 Fall Season. Your spot is still secure. We will let everyone know when AYL moves entirely over to League Toolbox Online Registration.

New Feature Rollouts

  • Fall Season 2011
    • Individualized Team Websites
    • Master Schedule
      • Family Schedule (Your profile updates with games depending on how many players are signed up from your family. No more hunting for you child’s games!)
    • League Standings and Team Win/Loss Record
    • 3rd Backup for Field Closures (Along with Status Me and Twitter Feed)
  • Spring Season 2012
    • New Registration System (will open in August, along with step-by-step video tutorial)

The main goal of rolling out these features is to get all of our parents and players familiar with the new system, without overwhelming everyone. The features I am really happy about rolling out early are the Master Schedule and Team Websites. Each team in each division gets their own website that lists the team’s: schedule, win/loss record, standings, game results, team roster, photos, and sponsors. I believe each of these tools will allow all of our members to better organize their travel plans and carpool assignments. As well as feel more connected with their team through their team’s website.

To better cover all the features the team websites provide, I created a 5 minute video overview. After watching this video, I hope will be as excited about League Toolbox as I am.

To view this video at it’s highest quality please change 360p to 720p on the video menu.

If you would like to check out the High School team websites:

The team websites for Pre K – 2nd, 3/4th, 5/6th, and 7th Grades will be created once Fall Registration concludes.

Cheers,
Gordon
