Fall registration planning should be on your mind a full year in advance. While I know that might sound a bit unmanageable, TeamSnap can help you get started and plan ahead. Fall season is typically a big time of year for soccer programs and leagues across North America. Use the spring season to take care of tryouts, coaching assignments, and registration. Do not wait until the end of the summer to open registration for the fall. By that point, it’s too late.
Get ahead of other programs

When you begin building your registration forms, don’t forget to properly test before going live. Use the months ahead of the fall to test, test, and test. Recruit other team members to be part of the testing. Once you’ve tested the forms, go live in the spring to allow for ample time for people to register and tryout.
