Top tips for clubs!
Running a club can take a lot of organising, and reaching every child’s parent to let them know of time changes, match locations, cancellations, payments and more can be a stressful task!

We’ve come up with some top tips to help clubs cut back on admin time and communicate easily with parents:
- Spend less time and money printing paper forms and documents, and send messages electronically to your parents – where they can read it on their mobile, tablet or computer at any time.
- Keep parents happy by texting them to tell them if an event has cancelled last minute, by using our Text app. Simply type your message and send to all your parents, reaching them before they leave the house and turn up to an empty room or field! You can also view your sent items and keep a track of how many texts you are sending.
- Telling your parents information at the beginning or end of an activity doesn’t always mean they will remember! Parents are busy, with 101 things going on, so when you tell them to bring something next week, they’re likely to forget! Use ParentMail to quickly email a message which they can pick up on their computer or mobile phone at any time.
- You can also set reminders (just in case they do forget!) So when you create your email, set an automatic reminder to be sent to them on the morning before their club starts.
- Need permissions for photos? Our Forms, Permissions and Surveys app means you can send a permission form to their phone (or tablet or computer) meaning mum or dad can complete it instantly and send it back to you. No need for paper going missing!
- For larger clubs, receiving payments can often be a struggle. With ParentMail +Pay, we take the stress away from you. Parents can receive a reminder when a payment is due, and simply log in and complete the payment online. No more chasing cheques or carrying loose change!
- Would you like some feedback from your parents about your club? Our Forms, Permissions and Surveys app improves the responses you get from parents – because they can complete it all from their mobile phone and send it back to you, even if they’re in the shops, at work or in bed!
