As with any app, there is always room for improvement. However, I love the convenience of using the Upward app in the locker room, at home, on the court or just anywhere! I like taking notes on each player for the star distribution after each game. The app allows me to assign a star, take notes, edit the star, and keep track of star distribution for the whole season. After one game I noticed that a player’s comments got cut off. Maybe I ran out of characters or something. It’s much easier to do substitutions too! I could go on and on. If you haven’t tried it, give it a “shot!”
Love This App
I have played/coached in dozens of organized sports leagues and Upward Sports is BY FAR the most efficient and effective. As a coach, this app provides a “one stop shop” for accessing all the tools I need for communicating with parents, practice and game schedules, preparing weekly training, reviewing objectives, and many other necessary tasks that would ordinarily take dozens of hours to complete. This app allows coaches to spend more time investing in the children, which to me, is the most important thing.
Like many other reviewers, logging in every 5 seconds is very annoying. Even when I click the “Remember me” I still have to enter my ENTIRE email and password every time I go to the app. Why have a “Remember me” option if it doesn’t actually “Remember me”??? It feels awkward and parents probably think I’m just messing around on my phone instead of coaching their kids, so I only use it when I forget to bring the paper booklet along. Actually remembering my email for the login would be helpful, using Touch ID would be better, keeping me logged in would be excellent!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
