Free Player Accounts Now Available (Release Notes: 3.0)

Hey all,

We have a pretty quick turnaround this week, but we want to announce some exciting news! We have made another major update to help you develop your players outside of practice.

Free Accounts
Anyone can now make a free Lacrosse Lab account. The free access will allow you to create a personal playbook. As a coach, this has allowed me to brainstorm plays and drills in preparation for my practices.

*Sharing your plays through Lacrosse Lab will still require the creation of a team.

Player Access
The primary motivation for providing free accounts was to allow you as a coach to invite players to have permanent access to your playbook. Previously, sharing plays was done using a public link which was difficult for players and their parents to manage. Also, the addition of new plays required a new link.

Going forward, all sharing will be done with Lacrosse Lab. Once you have created a team, you will notice that in addition to your coach token, there is a new 'Player Token'. The Player Token will allow your players and their parents to join your team to have view-only access to your team's playbook. As a coach, you can then see which of your players have joined your team and immediately use them in your Depth Chart.

To join a team:

Look for this new link in the top-left corner.

After clicking the link, players should click 'Join Team'

Finally, enter the 8-digit player token to join your team.
Give it a try! We believe this change will allow us to start enabling a lot of the features that we have long envisioned. Get in there and tell us what you think:

Share Public Plays with Free Accounts

Want to see a trick?   We're excited to announce that plays can now be shared and even embedded (like above) with your free Lacrosse Lab account. Sharing can be done by selecting the play options drop-down in "My Playbook." Select SHARE PLAY and navigate to the PUBLIC tab. For now, you can share directly to Facebook and Twitter. You can also copy a direct link to share anywhere that you please! For those of you that might be a little more "techy," you can also embed our play viewer on your site, just like I've shown above. As always, let us know what you think and start SHARING! -Eric

New Release: Team Schedules

Over the last year, we've built out the most complete lacrosse play designer available on the internet. We've helped teams across the country roll out their new plays so that their players can come to practice to apply their skills and knowledge immediately, rather than standing around and dry-running new plays. We've accomplished this while putting a lot of the team management and administration directly on the coach. Now, we want to help you deliver your lacrosse play curriculum through your team's Schedule . Here's what you can expect from this new feature: Create and Manage Game & Practice Events The Schedule allows coaches and team administrators the ability to upload their game and practice schedules. In addition to the date, time and location of their lacrosse games and practices, coaches can also call out key objectives for that particular event. __________________________________ Collect RSVPs As a coach of younger players, knowing
