How to Get More Players in Your League or Sports Club After COVID-19
When COVID-19 starts to die down, more players than ever will be looking to get active and join sports clubs. As a growing sports league you want to make sure you’re set up to get new registrations and players on your teams. Here’s how!
An Eye Catching Website
Make it easy for new players to reach out or join your league by having a website that gets their attention. A great website should show soon-to-be members what your league is all about. Showcasing successful games, team captain profiles, upcoming events and how to register are useful tools to engage new players. You can also prompt website visitors to sign up for emails so they can stay up to date on your leagues upcoming events.
Active Social Media
Social media is a great way to reach new members. Posting photo and video highlights from your games shows new players what your league has to offer. You can host at home sports challenges on all of your platforms to engage both current members as well as people looking to stay active during quarantine or looking to join your club. Messaging can also be good tools to answer questions and reach out to interested players. Make sure to track all your social media advertising and communication to improve your content for the future. Find out how to manage all your social media messaging and stats in one place.
Free Trial Games & Pickup
Did you know more than 1 in 4 Canadians play recreational sports regularly? Hosting free trials tournaments or pick up games can help give your soon-to-be members a taste of what they are missing. This also gives you and your team captains a chance to get to know new players and introduce them to your league. You can save time on reaching out to active sports players on platforms like Joyn App.
Word of Mouth
Creating an exceptional experience for existing members of your league means they will want to share it by inviting their friends or colleagues to join! Encourage team members to reach out to people they know who are looking to get active after quarantine. Here’s how you can communicate with all your teams easily.
