GameChanger Team Manager App Overview - Families

Loudoun Soccer Recreational teams may utilize the Dick's GameChanger Team Manager app, a free software designed primarily to display schedules, track and attendance, and communicate updates.

Each team and coach can use this software at their leisure, but it is not required.

Please see below regarding important information on utilizing this App, and some common scenarios you may encounter.

Creating Your Account and Importing Your Team

Look for an “invitation” emailed to your address associated with your Sports Connect account.

If you cannot locate it, the coach can re-send it, or you can download the app first. Visit the app store or Google Play (iOS and Android) to download.

When creating your account, be sure to use the email address associated with your Sports Connect account. This allows you to import team’s associated with your household.

You can also search for your team once you've downloaded the app, and request to join.

Whether you download from the email invite, or by visiting the app store, you can import your team and access the app's features.

Update Your Profile and Invite Family Members to Join

Once you’ve imported your team, you can update your profile by reading this article and following its steps.

Note that the contact information you provide or change in the app will also need to be changed in Sports Connect if you wish to update your profile with Loudoun Soccer and future registrations.

You may also add contacts (additional parents, grandparents, etc.) who need to stay in the loop by reading this article and following its steps.

VIEW YOUR SCHEDULE AND RSVP FOR TEAM EVENTS

Schedules (practices and games) should automatically import when you create your account, and update when/if changes occur or events are added by Loudoun Soccer.

Click on the Schedule or Events tab to see your team’s calendar.

REMEMBER: your official team schedule is listed on your Team Page in Sports Connect.. Be sure to review your Team Page schedule with your app schedule for accuracy, and notify your team’s coach ASAP if there are any discrepancies.

Touch a specific event to access the RSVP feature.

Use this feature to update your child’s status for each practice and game, which is helpful information for coaches for planning purposes.

As a rule of thumb: it’s best to also communicate directly (phone, text, or email) with the coach regarding an upcoming absence, so they are aware and can plan accordingly. RSVPing “not going” just before an event can create challenges for both your coach and your child’s team.

PRE-EVENT HEALTH TRACKER SURVEY

The Health Tracker feature is included in the app, but its usage is not required to participate in Loudoun Soccer programs.

Instead, families must complete a two-step pre-event self-wellness check

1.     Temperature Check – individuals with a temperature of 100.4 or higher are prohibited from participating.

2.     Answer the following questions on the day of the event, preferably 1-2 hours prior:

a.     Is your participant’s current temperature 100.4 or higher?
b.     Has the participant been diagnosed with COVID-19 within the last 14 days?
c.     Is the participant exhibiting any signs or symptoms of COVID-19 in the last 14 days?
d.     Has the participant been exposed to anyone that has been diagnosed with or has symptoms of COVID-19 in the last 14 days?

Any individual answering YES to one or more of the questions is prohibited from participating, should stay home, and should immediately notify [email protected] with relevant details.



Messages: Automatic Reminders and Chat Feature

Reminder Messages:

Automatic reminder messages will be sent 1, 2, or 3 days prior to each event, depending on the settings set by the coach.

Team Chat Message:
Use the Message feature to send team-wide texts, alerts and reminders as needed.
