Winter is Coming: Are you Prepared?

Don’t get caught FROZEN in your tracks! With another sports season around the corner, it’s a good idea to take a moment and look ahead.  By investing a little time now to review the winter season, you will avoid minimizing headaches in the long run.  Use our Winter Checklist to get ahead of the game.

Officials & Game Help

Recruit and assign game workers (officials if applicable) to all of your winter events.  By using Schedule Star, you can send automatic reminders and change notifications as the event date draws near.   

Game Contracts

If you haven’t done so already, it’s time to generate opponent and official contracts for winter contests. Be sure to check out Schedule Star’s new electronic contract feature, which allows you to “go green”.  Most importantly, it eliminates the tedious printing and mailing of paper copies. Send, receive and manage contracts with ease with our improved contract manager.    Contact to activate this great new feature.  

Fine-Tune Schedules

Review winter and spring schedules and add any necessary details.  For example: complete facility assignments, submit transportation requests, enter practice schedules, add dismissal times as needed, and cross reference the school calendar for any potential team conflicts (ie. SAT dates, holidays, class trips).
