Being the parent of a child athlete is no easy task. Not only do you have to make sure your Olympian-in-the-making gets to practice on time, but you also end up being a key member of the team yourself — suddenly people are counting on you to practice with your child at home, drive players to their gameday locations, and even chaperone out-of-town trips. With all the other responsibilities you already have on your plate from being a parent, you probably need all the help you can get!
Luckily, if you're an overworked sports parent in need of some assistance, there's an app for that! From transportation to meal planning, to coordinating schedules and game snacks, to the woes of team funding, here are five of the best apps to make life easier for busy sports parents and coaches in 2020:
This app works to make life easier for coaches, managers, group leaders, and organizers by sorting everything into one connected solution. From setting up rosters, lineups, and invoices, to notifying your team about last-minute changes, this app saves you time and keeps you organized!
When it comes to transferring money and splitting bills, Venmo has been making everyone's lives easier for years. Through this app, sports parents can collect money for team gifts or year-end pizza parties as well as split up the costs of groceries, dinner, or hotel bills during out of town tournaments.
An essential for road trips to out-of-town tournaments or even just making it to regular scheduled practices and games on time, Waze is a GPS navigation app that goes above and beyond your average turn-by-turn navigation by providing real-time traffic updates, alerts when objects are in the road, notifications about detours and red light cameras, and more.
From little league to the major leagues, this all-in-one platform was created specifically for coaches who are passionate about coaching smarter, who want to manage their time better, and better enable themselves to change lives on and off the playing field.
Can't make it to one of your kid's games? This app helps you keep up in real-time by providing live play-by-plays, in-game alerts, and recaps of your child's baseball, softball, or basketball games.
Say ‘goodbye’ to chains of texts or complicated spreadsheets related to carpooling. GoKid is a family organization app that makes scheduling and managing shared rides with other families easy and secure.
