Forgotten about password function malfunction 1/5
Can’t use an app you can’t get into. Worthless app until this is resolved.
Messages won’t load! 1/5
This isn’t the worst app for sports teams and I would have rated higher until recently, when at least 50% of the time, the messages won’t load. This is exceptionally frustrating and makes the app completely useless. Please fix.
Happy Coach, Happy Parents 5/5
Over the years I’ve used quite a few different teams apps and none were this easy to setup and use.
Good app 2/5
Overall it’s nice to have everything in one app, I had a lot of trouble with the messaging, and even with the update still having issues accessing messaging, sometimes it works, a lot of times it doesn’t.
I love dicks 4/5
Dicks app is a bit hard, after a while it’s a bit easier to use.
Great platform for organization. Constant bugs and issues. 2/5
By Good looking fella
My Youth Tackle Football, Flag Football, and Cheer programs all use this app. I am the Webmaster for our non profit and this app has been useful. However, there are never ending bugs, very glitchy is many ways. Parents grow frustrated by the lack of updating of calendar from blue sombrero site. I would update the webpage calendar, reimport it on the app and it would take 3-7 days to show up, often never showing up. It is also very limited if you are a league organizer. Once parents accept an invite you can’t edit anything, even as an admin. You can only upload rosters one time from blue sombrero. Once you do, that’s it. You literally can’t make any edits. It’s a shame because the potential for this app is great, but the bugs and glitches make you question wether or not the juice is worth the squeeze.
Doesn’t work correctly 1/5
No one on my sons team can get this app to work correctly. Coaches have tried to put the game schedule in and it does not work. Have used many other apps like this and this is by far the worst experience. Useless.
Keeps us up to date 5/5
Really helped us keep all the locations and times straight. Great communication tool.
Easy to Use and well organized 5/5
This app is great for keeping up with games and practices as well as keeping up with communication.
App Missing 1 Thing 4/5
By King Noke
It would be a 5 if the app kept the team record instead of you having to look at each result to see what the team record is.
TM for the win 5/5
Super easy to find your way around when first using the app!!!
Fantastic all in one team management tool 5/5
This app had been amazing. We use it to communicate with parents for all the team needs.
Team building events
The events have everything you need as a Coach to communicate.
Venue: you can get directions easily
Weather: updates on conditions for the event
Player status: updated by each player/parent
Details: time, date, and reminders
Notes: any additional information you need to communicate
Excellent tool for your team.
This is the best team app I’ve seen!
Good service 5/5
Nice app- straight forward
Head coach 5/5
This app has been great at letting me keep my team in the loop with games and practices.
Lacking a lot 2/5
I just don’t get how u can only have one child on the app. Plenty of family’s have more then one kid that plays sports in the same league. Huge waste of time. This app could be so much better.
Easy to use and stay on top of schedules 5/5
Easy communication for everything you need to know to stay on top of team communication.
Loved the app 5/5
By dont you dar tuch my har
Love having a centralized location for all of my sons little league communication. It minimizes the chance of me missing important messages buried in my email inbox. The calendar feature is also awesome as I was able to sync the little leave calendar into my iPhone calendar.
Great app 5/5
By irish slainte
It’s really great for my rec sand volleyball team! Only thing I would add would be box scores or a place to add if you won the game to keep track of your record
It makes our life much easier, especially with three children! Thank you!
App won’t open 2/5
I’m downloaded the app on a new phone and it’s not opening
Moving to team reach 2/5
This app was fine and then the updates have screwed up arrival times and does NOT sync to web page. Having to move several teams midseason to team reach as a last resort. Please test your updates before you push. Parents rely on this app and its frustrating and it’s gets passed on to coaches.
Most basic function never works 1/5
I like the design and idea but the messaging never works , every time I want to see message I get a retry message and only way to use it is to close and restart app which makes it so annoying and useless
Locked out and can’t get in. 1/5
The forgot password route takes you know where.... Horrible
Add a way to delete teams 2/5
Just a clumsy org app with a lot potential. Game Changer to Team Manager was not smooth. Online and App versions have different experiences. Can’t remove a team in the app version.
Rsvp needs improvement 3/5
Please make the app send a notification to the coach and team manager for a NO rsvp. This would make sub player planning easier than having to micromanage the app for player rsvp responses. It will also ensure last minute rsvp changes do not go unnoticed. Other than this needed improvement, I use the app to manage 2 soccer teams and love the convenience.
Great App 5/5
By Nicolas Alexandros
Very simple to easy and very nice to use.
One main feature missing... 3/5
So i have to say I love the app. It works properly and I haven’t seen one single crash yet. But... Where is the iPad app? Using the iPhone app on my iPad does now do this app justice.
Cannot add a calendar 1/5
I have all of our games on my google calendar and it would not sync into Team Manager. So I would basically need to create 40 events in the app. Not worth it. Very basic and none descript
So slow, it’s a dog 1/5
This app could be great, it’s a simple calendar and messaging app for sports teams, but the vast majority of the time I open it, it won’t let me read messages or reply. Its responsiveness is awful.
No new features, just speed and responsiveness!
Add features please 3/5
Could be much better. No way to add pictures, videos or game scores or stats for parents or players to see.
I can’t find a way to reset the password 1/5

I’m following the “forgot password” link and I have been going in circles for 5 minutes!
Resetting a simple password 1/5
By turloxk mom

Where can I all to reset my password!?
Support not good at all 1/5
App will not synch with the blue sombrero site that Dicks uses for their platform. Technical support has been nonexistent
Could be great but falls well short 2/5
As a league administrator, the concept of the app being an extension of the website is amazing. Unfortunately the user experience is dismal.
Typically a practice schedule is released while a game schedule is being worked on. Then more practices are scheduled between games. The way the website works, these are three individual schedules. There is supposed to be a one time sync between website and app, but it rarely, if ever, works. On top of that, the team’s manager (or listed staff, if that syncs) is the only one who can “re-import” the schedule. League administrators cannot. This is a manual action, which typically will say the action will take a couple of minutes. The reality is, it doesn’t pull in. Support is delayed in their response and frustrating to work with, but eventually they can sync on the back end. If you have rescheduled it makes this process a nightmare.
Team personnel also does not sync except for one time, when the team is imported from the website. If you are a coach of the younger divisions you typically need time to find your assistant coaches, therefore you have to have the technical abilities to manually invite the coach to your team.
All in all, the idea is fantastic but the execution leaves a lot to be desired. Until the app and website tie together in real-time, this app will give you a constant headache, keep you busy answering questions from frustrated parents, and overall it will take away from your coaching experience.
Until a major overhaul takes place, as a league administrator my recommendation is to stay away from the app.
Promising but some restrictions don’t make sense 3/5
First season with using this as Team Parent for our soccer team.
1. I like the calendar function. Very nice to be able to add the location for games/practices and directly open a navigation app if needed. The weather forecast is a nice touch too.
2. RSVP function is very handy.
3. I like that the kids can also be added. My daughter likes to know who’s coming to the games
4. Automatic reminder notification. Saves some time from using the Remind app before every practice or game.
1. Not being able to add additional parents once one has accepted the invite. This makes it awkward when parents are divorced. You have to ask one of them to add the other parent or delete the player and send invites to both.
2. An administrator can’t edit the players photos. I take pictures at the games and have photos of all the players. Yet I can’t add them to their roster profile.
3. It would be nice as admin to be able to set up notifications for when someone RSVPs. I see this more useful for the “no” responses, so you get a notification if someone isn’t coming.
4. Please allow more online editing. Right now I have to do most of it on my phone. I asked for a roster link and couldn’t edit players I’d already added.
Overall, I think the app will be useful but there’s some obvious areas that need to be improved.
Really handy but glitchy 4/5
I use this to manage two teams simultaneously. I really like how multiple team calendars integrate in one calendar view. I also like how it has simple administrative capabilities and that you can build the roster on a computer. Not sure why the tool tracks RSVPs for parents...I’d like to have control to disable that for parents.
Three issues I’ve found as a team manager:
1. Adding another parent after the player is created. You need to recreate a player profile if an additional parent asked to be added. Really annoying and unnecessarily complicated.
2. There is no feature for game volunteers to sign up for snacks. Need to run a separate SignUpGenius for that. Nuisance to have to keep two tools.
3. There is no aggregation of standing (eg, total number of wins/losses/ties). The scorekeeper feature is very good, but I’d love to see a tally of results.
The so called integration to TSHQ is complete trash. Separate user accounts for the app and website makes little sense. The process of importing a team from the website is hokey at best. The lack of roster synchronization between the website and the app is a gross oversight. After 3 painful seasons I cannot wait for our club to leave this platform.
By Michael Kovs
Can you make this as an IPad app too? Besides that I have no problems with it at all!
Super buggy app 1/5
Receive notifications of news activity only to get errors when trying to view the same. Garbage app.
Archive old teams please! 3/5
It would be so great if you’d auto-archive old teams. We use the same team names each season (with blue lightning or pink lightning) but all the old teams still show up and I can’t hide them unless I remove myself from the team.
Great app, buts need some work 4/5
I’ve been a user of the GameChanger app for my baseball teams for years now. We are using the Team Manager app for a volleyball team my daughter is on. It works great but all too often I need to force quit the app and then re-open to get the messages to properly load.
Used for years and now not working 2/5
Have used dicks sports apps and now team manager for multiple seasons. Was also very pleased, but Currently not getting updates on the app. Games/practices are scheduled and they show on website but app still shows original items that were posted weeks ago. Thought it was my team, but all other members have it working correctly. Please direct me to who can assist me
Very Useful 4/5
By another coach
I and my kids Parents like this app. It pulls seamlessly from out leagues Blue Sombrero site. Communication is easy and eliminates the many text messages. I would like to see the complete package of gamechanger included in this app to make it a one stop shop for our baseball management. Thanks.
Is there a way to delete a parent? I added a grandparent as a parent but don’t want them on there.
Basic for better or worse 3/5
The app is Very simple which is good for parents to use. At the same time looks somewhat lower quality compared to other apps just based off of the aesthetics. That said ability to message Through the app but also email or phone call is nice. Sign-up is easy. Calendar is useful but again functionally and aesthetically pretty average. I do not know why it needs to show me every day both as a calendar and as a list. Would be nice to get rid of the extra days on the list except for ones with events. also would be great if you could share pictures and videos in a separate section because I think that’s a very useful addition especially for younger kids where a picture taking seems to be just as important as the game itself. Overall I chose it over the other apps because it simple, easy to sign up, and good for communicating. Despite all that it could be made a whole lot better with some simple changes to make with the calander.
after update 1/5
By App is Broken!
I can no longer add to my roster that I have already made. It keeps going straight to add staff and skips roster.
I can not delete old teams.
I can not add to roster on a new team.
Please help now or deleting app!!!!
It’s a pain trying to load messages I can never get into them. This is so annoying!
