On average, college athletic teams spend 10 months out of the year together. That’s 300 days of workouts, classes, practices, meetings, film sessions, treatment times, road trips, meals and more. Millions of dollars and thousands of man hours are spent each year in effort to compete, win and move an athletic program forward.
In order to make each of these 300 days successful, there’s a whole lot of work that has to happen behind the scenes to make sure everything works.
Think about a typical day in the life of a student athlete. She is going to have workouts, classes, tutoring, meals, skill work, a team meeting and possibly a recruit to host. Just about each of these events is scheduled and operated by a different group on campus (i.e. coaching staff for practice, trainer for treatment, etc..).
Coaches, trainers, advisors, and support staff are tasked with the challenge of working around each other’s schedules and the class schedules of all their athletes. Let’s face it, there is a lot of scheduling, messaging, reminding and overall information sharing that has to take place for things to work each day. Paper calendars and clunky software just isn’t going to cut it anymore! Student athletes expect more! And with the advancements in mobile technology, just think about the expectations of student athletes 2 years from now. It’s time to for coaching staff’s and athletic departments to do their due diligence and learn how to adopt new mediums of communication that affect the right behavior across their program.
