Case Study | Shelburne County Minor Hockey and TeamLinkt Health Waivers

This case study will discuss how Shelburne County Minor Hockey utilized TeamLinkt’s event health waivers to record team members' health status. As well as how they used TeamLinkt's live-streaming features, which offered spectators a viewing experience through the COVID-19 pandemic.


Overview

Organizing, running and growing a minor sports association is no small feat. It takes several motivated volunteers, hundreds of collaborative hours and a lot of dedication. Throw a global pandemic on top with new rules, regulations, and protocols, ever changing restrictions and the final product is a recipe for volunteer burnout.

 

A Simple Solution For COVID ~ Health Waivers for Tracking

During the 2020 season, sports leagues and associations took on the responsibility of tracking the health status and attendance of their participants due to a global pandemic. For many leagues, this task was being performed manually by recording this information with pen and paper. As such, this created problems with organizing paper sheets, tracking attendance and spreading bacteria through using a pen and paper. For Shelburne County Minor Hockey, TeamLinkt’s new features helped them solve this problem. It provided a simple solution to tedious tasks and gave teams the ability to track, trace and have each player sign waivers eliminating the need for them to waste hours at arena doors screening each player and manually recording information.

With TeamLinkt’s event health waiver feature, leagues and associations are able to create a health waiver that is completed by participants through the team management app. Once complete, team administrators and league administrators have the ability to track who was at each event and if they completed the health waiver form. 

 

Live-Streaming Made Easy

Additionally TeamLinkt allowed the Team Manager of Shelburne Minor Hockey to have a central place to post team schedules. Accordingly, in an instant they are able to notify their entire team of updates and changes. TeamLinkt can also help another important aspect of the team, the spectators. With the COVID-19 restrictions, spectators could not be in attendance. By utilizing the live stream feature, they ensured that the scores are updated in real time. As a result, they were able to support their players in the best possible capacity.

From a team administrator perspective Beth Anne Goreham stated, “our coaches like they can see who's attending in advance, set team challenges, get team member opinions, chat or email with a click and most of them use the video feature to show the team game examples of what they need to work on.” In a time where virtual learning is the new normal Shelburne Minor Hockey is a testament to the importance of adopting a team management software such as TeamLinkt. As a result, the TeamLinkts app has become an essential part of the association's success.  


Complete Oversight

These new features give leagues and associations complete oversight of every event. You can easily access and export the data if necessary to share this information with a third party. With the new event health waiver feature, leagues and teams can ensure all health and safety protocols are being met amid COVID-19 protocols. TeamLinkt has made it their mission to provide the greatest support to their users. 

“The TeamLinkt app saved us hundreds of hours this season. Within 3 days of launching we had all our players and their families in every division for every team on the app. It was simple and easy to navigate even for the least technical person. We are very thankful we discovered it.”
