Why your club needs to move its members online

Running a grassroots sports club comes with countless administrative problems that you, the volunteering club official or coach, simply don't have time to dedicate to.

One of those problems is managing all the members that populate your club's various teams. We feel your pain, but with Pitchero's effortless team management tools, nightmarish team admin can be a thing of the past.

 

Don't rely on old-school methods

You do your shopping online, banking online and read the latest news online. Running your club should be no different.

  • One central, secure database

Paper-based methods are not only a ordeal to maintain, they're also far from secure. Keep your membership data in one centralised, searchable and secure location online. It will help towards ensuring your club is GDPR-compliant.

  • Online membership forms

Create and customise your membership forms, allowing you to collect the information you need from different members and store it securely online. 

  • Import your contacts in seconds

Populating your database doesn't have to be a tiresome task. Using the import tool, you can transfer all of your club's members into the club database in just a few moments.

 

Increase club revenue

Your Membership Database works seamlessly with the time-saving and revenue-boosting Pitchero feature – Shop and Payments.

  • Get started in seconds

Collecting membership fees with Pitchero is as easy as adding your club's bank account. Plus, you have secure payment gateways to choose from – GoCardless and Stripe. 

  • Track everything

Once the membership fees start rolling in, use your intuitive dashboard and reporting tools to track who has and hasn't paid, and prompt those who haven't.

  • Don't let fees slip through the net

Collecting membership fees online is proven to increase the amount of successfully collected fees, increasing revenue and allowing your club to thrive.

 

Improve club communications

Once all your membership data is in one easily accessible place online, you can use it to make communicating with your members a doddle.

  • The right communications for the right people

An email sent through Pitchero can be filtered by team, role or custom field, allowing you to send relevant club communications to the all right members simultaneously. 

  • Comms wherever they are via the Club app

Plus you can message club members using the Pitchero mobile Club app, allowing you to communicate with members wherever you and they are.

  • Prompt users to update their info

Still lacking the right data on certain members? Send them an email prompt so you can get what you need.

 

Get back to sport

Pitchero's comprehensive Team Management tools are helping hundreds of passionate grassroots club members rediscover their love for sport. 

Save time and make running your club a whole lot easier, freeing you up to get back to doing what you love.
