BOULDER, Colo., Nov. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- TeamSnap, a management and communication tool for youth sports used by more than 125,000 teams around the world, has released a completely revamped version of its mobile app for Android. The new app brings the complete functionality of its popular online team management tool to the world's largest-selling smartphone platform.
This Android release, like the revamped iOS release earlier this year, brings dozens of new features to the world's most popular smartphones. Coaches and managers can now sign up new players, add new player information, schedule or cancel games or practices and perform other administrative tasks directly from any smartphone running Android 2.2 and above. The new app even includes features not yet in TeamSnap's online version, like mobile push notifications to parents and players.
Nearly 27 million U.S. children between the ages of six and 17 participate in at least one youth sport each year, and many participate in several. Recognizing the need for communication and coordination, TeamSnap developed a web- and mobile-based tool now used by more than 2 million youth coaches, players, managers and parents to streamline sports team management. Today, TeamSnap is used by families in virtually every youth sport, including soccer, baseball, hockey, football and basketball.
"Millions of parents and kids need to balance youth sports schedules with school and other family activities," said Dave DuPont, CEO of TeamSnap. "Our updated mobile apps for both Android and iOS make it easy for parents, players, coaches and managers to stay in touch as well as review schedules and other team updates directly on the device they always have access to -- their smartphone."
The new TeamSnap Android app is a free download and now available.
