MVPs of the Week: 1) Atlanta Rollergirls
This team used their platform to advocate for three important issues on one of the biggest stages in the sport.
Red shirts “Were you here first?” #NoOneIsIllegal
Black shirts “Infinite Possibilities” #FTheBinary
Blue Shirts “It Happened, it’s happening. Fix it.” #blacklivesmatter
2) Namur Roller Girls, TRACKKARMA
This is the kind of innovation I love 😍 Can’t wait to try it out!
“Ever dreamed of teams charters, training sessions, attendance, league agenda and directory all gathered in one single tool?
Here it is: Trackkarma, the application that will change the world (or at least your league).
In Trackkarma, members can:
- Manage their player profile and import a cute picture;
- Check monthly agenda of games and training sessions;
- Inform of their absence at practice;
- Communicate with their bench crews;
- Visualize team charters and game rosters;
- Register to coach at practice;
Bench crews can:
- Organize players into teams;
- Select players for game rosters;
- Add games and related information to the agenda;
- Communicate with their players;
- Check players’ attendance;
This gem of an app was designed by Chaf (Hi Christophe) creator of the StatsViewer.
