New and Improved AYSO Team Sites
Make Sure Your Region Doesn’t Miss Out
What are Team Sites?
Shutterfly Team Sites make it easy for coaches to communicate with parents and stay organized. They are a hub for all team information and a great place for parents to privately share pictures from games and events. AYSO and Shutterfly make it easy by auto-creating these sites using roster information and parent contact information that is stored in eAYSO.
New this year:
Ensure the teams in your Region do not miss out:
- Additional incentives will be offered to Regions that participate:
- If your Region has over 75% of its Team Sites activated, AYSO Soccer Camps will host a free player clinic for your Region, and you’ll receive 15% off Molten soccer balls.
- If your Region gets over 50% of Team Sites activated, all Team Site participants in your Region will receive a free Shutterfly 8x8 Photo Book.
- RCs will be able to track their Region’s adoption of Team Sites on Shutterfly and will have the ability to resend an activation email to those teams that have not yet activated.
- Regions can choose their “Shutterfly Team Website Release Date” in eAYSO to ensure the site is not created until the Region is ready.
- Please distribute flyers to your coaches at the coaches’ season kickoff meeting. Shutterfly recently printed specialized coach flyers and shipped them to all RCs – expect their arrival this week.
- For Regions that use eAYSO to form teams:
- Set your Shutterfly Team Website Release date in eAYSO. It’s recommend that you select a date shortly after your season kickoff meeting for coaches.
- Make sure all of the team and coach assignments on each team roster are finalized before this date.
- Shutterfly will automatically send emails to coaches inviting them to activate their Team Site. Sites will include roster and contact information.
- For Regions that do not use eAYSO:
- Beginning in August, you will be able to upload an Excel spreadsheet containing your team, player and parent data directly to Shutterfly, and create an AYSO Shutterfly Team Site automatically for your Region’s teams.
- Please visit www.shutterfly.com/ayso/regions for more information starting in August.
Activating a team site will only take coaches 5-10 minutes, and if they’d like, they can forward the activation email to a Team Parent to set-up. We hope your coaches are able to save time and capture priceless moments this season for the entire team to share. AYSO and Shutterfly wish you a great season!
