teamloop has been in the making for a while. Since we are getting closer to launching we wanted to share what is driving us to build this app.
Adam and I both have kids who have played sports for several years. I have two who have been on different teams at the same time so basically four sports in parallel.
As parents, we receive a lot of emails from their coaches. Emails with schedules, fees due, and questions about player availability. Others for practice reminders, weather updates, and game rescheduling. Notifications about which color jersey to wear, directions to a game, and snack schedules and end-of-season parties. It is a lot of team management and communication through email.
I started analyzing these emails over the last couple of years and some very clear patterns became apparent. I’m going to start posting some example and sharing what I found.
