For USA Swimming teams out there, the TeamUnify platform has gotten a little bit sweeter with some recent updates that make batch registration smoother, compliance with a specific USA Swimming standard a lot more efficient, and make available a new form of USA Swimming membership. These feature releases include:
Process for easy batch registration to USA Swimming through the SWIMS integration
Inclusion of digital USA Swimming Start Certification worksheets within the TeamUnify mobile app, OnDeck.
Ability to select the USA Swimming Flex Membership as a registration option.
USA Swimming SWIMS Integration
At the beginning of every season, an administrator for each swim team would take it upon themselves to go through the process of manually building out a USA Swimming registration packet, exporting it, downloading it and mailing to their appropriate LSC contact. With the new SWIMS integration, administrators can now build registrations, compare member info from both their team database and the USA Swimming database, verify all member information is correct, and submit their registration packets digitally right from the TeamUnify environment. Once the registration packet is approved by USA Swimming, each individual member profile will be updated with their registration date and USA Swimming Badge.
USA Swimming requires each swimmer to be certified to dive into the pool. Right now, most coaches print out multiple worksheets and record tests for a group of swimmers one at a time. With the new Start Certification Worksheet, USA Swimming affiliated coaches can now digitally record test certifications for their swimmers directly from the mobile app, OnDeck. Easily access a digital worksheet and archive for records.
Recently, USA Swimming released an all-new membership level called the “FlexSwim Membership.” This membership level is an entry-level membership meant for families who want to experience being part of a swimming team but want flexibility to participate in other activities and sports throughout the year. Now, when a TeamUnify administrator is generating registration batches, “Flex” is an option that can be selected for individual swimmers who wish to compete at that level.
