Keeping all activities straight can be hard for any player, parent, or athlete. If using a team management app like Team Snap you can sync a team calendar to your preferred main calendar. This helps cut down on any issues and ensures that if there are schedule changes mid season that your calendar is automatically updated (assuming someone updates the primary calendar kept on Team Snap). Follow these steps to keep everyone up to date.
Before syncing, if you have multiple teams you can combine them into a single main calendar. If using another management app, like Game Changer, check out our guide to syncing a GameChanger App to Apple or Google Calendar. The combined singular calendar is one feature of Team Snap that does not exist in game changer.
While most other features are similar, when choosing Team Snap vs. Game Changer if you are managing multiple teams in a season then this is one considerations when choosing your management tool. For coaching youth soccer, or partaking in recreational sports, we find that improving communications helps everyone have more fun.

Find Team Snap Calendar Link for Syncing
For syncing games, as mentioned above, one of the best benefits of Team Snap is that it can consolidate all of your teams and calendars. This is extremely helpful for players or families that are balancing multiple sports, club and recreational teams, or overlapping seasons all at once.
If you want to really optimize things you can mark which events you are attending using the RSVP feature. Then you can export only those games that are relevant to you. This helps when you are following multiple teams of a friend or family member, or sharing out for family on an individual basis (think grand parents).
From the desktop version of Team Snap you can find the “Go to Full Schedule” from the dashboard. At the top right of the calendar view is a big export button. Clicking this brings up the calendar links that can be used via to import or subscribe on Apple or Google Calendar.
This view provides three options for what calendar view to export. All Games, games and events (practices and team outings), or just events and games you have said you will attend.
