We are excited to announce that TULessons has received a brand new registration interface. Now more intuitive than ever, this new user experience will help streamline your sign up process while helping your team capture more registrations. Simplified and optimized for mobile devices, families will now be able to find, filter and sign up for your lessons programs with ease on any device.
On April 20th, 2017 we launched one of our biggest contests yet. We partnered up with SwimOutlet's Team Division to give away three $500 gift cards to three TeamUnify teams. Teams could get one entry if they got 65% of their families to download and log into OnDeck. They could also get multiple entries into the contest by getting families to put a payment type on file with their teams. They got one entry for their team for each percent increase starting on April 20th, 2017 and ending on June 30th, 2017.
Announcing the next big thing for your team! TeamUnify is about to release a brand new communication hub for your team and we call it ScrapBook and TeamFeed.
–Emily Edward, Fundraising Admin — Flood Aquatics Swim Team
The best way to put it is that the Flood Aquatics Swim Team crushed their USA Swimming Foundation Swim-A-Thon fundraising goals and it was their first time running it on the TUMoney system! No only did they have to bump their initial goals up by $5,000, but they still exceeded it and went above the $15,000 mark. We are so proud of them in their team's efforts. They have 38 accounts and just under 60 athletes in the water. That means that each athlete on average collected over $250. That is huge for their team!
Swim-A-Thons are a huge deal in USA Swimming. More than likely, it is your biggest fundraiser of the year for your club. While helping to host the USAS Swim-A-Thon Workshop last year in Atlanta, we picked up a few tips and tricks of the fundraising trade that we want to share with you!
I am a part of this great group online, the Swim Coaches Idea Exchange, where coaches throughout the swim industry share ideas, stories, photos, articles and more. It is really great stuff.
Recently, a coach asked if any YMCA coaches had linked TU's online payment processing with their front desk facility management software, like DAXKO. More specifically, this coach wanted to be able to charge for meet fees using the TeamUnify system and wanted to know how other YMCAs have done it. I joined in on the conversation and want to share what I learned.
Do you run summer swim camps? If so, you need to look into this one tool that will revolutionize your camp's registration process. TeamUnify's lessons platform, TULessons, has everything you need to get swimmers registered, paid for, and organized for your summer swim camps!
Do you need some help with your next fundraiser and want to learn how to raise more money? We teamed up with the USA Swimming Foundation to host a Swim-A-Thon Fundraising Workshop at last year's 2016 USAS Convention in Atlanta, Georgia. This workshop featured three rockstar fundraising admins who shared their goals, planning, and secrets to running a prosperous USA Swimming Foundation Swim-A-Thon.
I wanted to take a moment out of your busy day to sing the praises of one of your team members, Amanda Studdard. Last week I had the absolute pleasure of working with Amanda to set up registration and billing on our site.
Ever since TeamUnify released MainSet in early 2016, video has been on the forefront of its feature list. The ability to quickly capture, easily upload with unlimited storage, then share directly with your team's existing family and swimmer's profiles have always been key features that coaches and administrators love.
