I love criticism because it means I can do something better. One of the biggest criticisms Atlanta Youth Lacrosse received this past Spring Season was the lack of a Master Game Schedule, and that the schedule changed from week to week. This criticism was valid for two reasons. One, there was no Master Game Schedule. Two, our lovely Director, Mary Jo Corsetti, organized the weekly schedule because our fields were available at different times each week. After spending the last two weeks setting up the Fall Schedule my hat is off to my mother for many years of putting together schedules week after week.
Because this criticism ranked highest among the things AYL could improve on, I set out to find a quality program that would allow us to provide all members with a Master Game Schedule. Well, I lucked out tremendously with League Toolbox. This company creates and continually improves upon a host of league management software tools. On top of ridiculously good and timely customer support, League Toolbox knew more about creating schedules than I thought possible.
Because of League Toolbox’s tools, this season we offer three distinct methods of viewing the Fall Ball Schedule:
- Download the Master Game Schedule
- Perfect if you want to cross out games as we move through the season.
- Dynamic Master Game Schedule: http://ayllax.leaguetoolbox.com/league/schedule.php
- This schedule allows you to select “division” and “team”
- For example, select “3/4th Grade” and “Outlaws,” and you will be directed to the Outlaw’s Individual Team Schedule
- Individual Team Websites Next Game Banner
- Get familiar with your team’s website. Every time you visit the homepage you will see a list of upcoming games on the left, and a large banner displaying your team’s next game, opponent, location, and time.
Remember, all of this information is accessible at: www.ayllax.com/master-game-schedule. If you forget when to show up for a game just check the schedule, and it will be there waiting for you.
Finally, I put together a short video tutorial. This video details how to access the Master Game Schedule, and all the different formats it is presented in.
