What did 23 of last year’s Top 25 college football programs have in common?
Besides great players and coaches—the answer is Teamworks.
For over a decade, top college football programs have partnered with Teamworks to engage their players and streamline team operations.
But not every college football program has Power 5 resources, which is why Teamworks now offers TeamSynced—an operations platform tailored to fit the needs and budgets of smaller college athletics.
“TeamSynced allows programs at our level, that don’t have as many resources as those at the top levels, to still have an elite level of organization,” says Jordan Langs, Head Football Coach at Indiana Wesleyan (NAIA).
Efficiency and engagement are essential for D2 coaches like Black Hills State’s John Reiners.
“With over 100 people—players, trainers, coaches, administrators—keeping everybody on the same page is so imperative,” explains Reiners. “TeamSynced has enabled us to do that.”
Smaller staffs are routinely stretched thin by off-the-field responsibilities typically handled by support staff at larger schools.
For example, at the FBS-level, support staff members conduct class checks to make sure student-athletes keep up academically. Not so at a smaller school, where academic success is just as crucial for student-athletes. Coaches spend hours walking campus instead.
“At Blinn College we have high expectations to produce on the field as well as in the classroom,” says Head Coach Ryan Mahon.
“However, we have a staff of six coaches. We have to wear many hats. The check-in capability that TeamSynced offers allows us to be in two places at once.“
With check-ins and core features like blast messaging and file sharing straight to athletes’ phones, TeamSynced can have immediate impact on team culture.
“For any team, if everyone is going in the same direction then you stand a chance. TeamSynced streamlines the process,” says Coach Mahon.
