As the weekend approaches, there are a lot of opportunities to capture all the little things that make your team unique, fun, and awesome. From poolside antics at practice to podium medals at meets, weekends festivities make it easy to capture and share all the fun that is going on with your team and that is exactly what TeamFeed is all about.
As you might have discovered in your OnDeck application or on your team site, TeamFeed is now live for SwimOffice Pro customers! The first week has been crazy. With over 1,000 posts already created and shared, we can't wait to see how teams will take this new social sharing platform to new heights.

At SportsEngine.com, families can search for a sport they’re interested in joining, their location and child’s gender and age, and then see a list of teams in their area. With the backing of NBC Sports promoting this nationally to encourage participation in youth sports, it is easier than ever for your team to attract new swimmers and families.

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.
