Parents can play many roles in sports: current or former athlete, coach, fan, motivator, role model or critic. A few studies have shown that family members may influence an athlete’s involvement and achievement in sport more than coaches. Parents also are the first and most critical agents for socializing sports.
Lady Vipers Lacrosse will be using the Dibs system to manage volunteer opportunities. Most help will be needed on home game days but other openings occur with Homecoming Parade, team dinners, football concessions, Senior night, and end of season Banquet. Each family will be expected to commit 10 hours this season.
You can sign up for shifts through Dibs on the website only. The SportsEngine mobile app is not yet equipped with this feature.
Once a shift is claimed, it can be cancelled up to 7 days prior to the time of the shift. Once within 7 days, it will be your responsibility to find a replacement to work for you.
If you have any trouble getting into the DIBS site, please check your login. If you are still unable to get in, please contact our webmaster.
Parents and athletes need to manage their SportsEngine accounts to ensure they get the most out of their Lady Vipers Lacrosse Club experience during each sporting season. With their accounts properly configured, athletes and their families will receive communications according to their preferences and be able to complete registrations more efficiently. SportsEngine has created a Team Management Guide for Parents and Athletes that will help our members with frequently asked questions about our website and mobile app.
Also, see this article on understanding how your SportsEngine account is structured and explains how account profiles, athlete profiles and guardians are interconnected.
Keep connected to your team(s). Get schedules and team updates for every athlete in the house, plus a way to message other members on your team and a way to give coaches a heads up about practice. Enjoy unlimited access to scores & stats, photo/video sharing, and more.
In many instances, more than one parent or guardian needs to be in the loop with a child's sports life. Using the mobile app or on a PC, you can add additional guardians to an account. Guardians can 1) View games and events 2) RSVP to games and events 3) Send and receive messages to coaches and team members 4) participate in team chat. If you want your daughter to respond to their own RSVPs, you will similarly set them up as guardians of their own profile.
Do you need a second parent, other family member or nanny to get messages about schedule changes or game times? Add a second email address to forward all communications. This method does not allow the capabilities of a guardian such as RSVP'ing or emailing other team members.
Once you've created your account, add your mobile phone so you can receive text messages from your team manager or coach.
Now that you have your mobile phone on your account, make sure you enable text messaging and any other notifications.
